January 28, 2014 (HOUSTON, TX) – Boxer Property’s portfolio is quickly expanding in other major markets. In fact, the square footage outside of Boxer’s core markets, Houston and Dallas, now comprises nearly a quarter of the overall portfolio. Because of this rapid expansion, Boxer Property has tapped a key employee as a Regional Director of Operations.
Kenneth Freeman has been promoted to Regional Director of Operations where he will work alongside his mentor, Joe Aubin who effectively managed this portfolio for eight years.
“As a company, we like to recognize those individuals who work hard and are ready for the next step,” said Joe Aubin, Regional Director of Operations. “It’s perfect when an individual’s success coincides with Boxer’s growth and Kenny is that individual.”
Freeman and Aubin will now split this portfolio; Freeman will take on those incubator markets that have one to two properties, where it’s easy for Boxer to mobilize and grow. Aubin will continue to oversee the larger markets that are more established with more moving parts.
“I am truly excited about this opportunity and intend to apply the many things I have learned throughout my nine years at Boxer to continue improving the buildings and tenant relationships,” said Kenneth Freeman, Regional Director of Operations. “I aim to take these properties to the next level by ensuring we are up to Boxer’s standards while reaching for higher goals through the implementation of new building operations and management processes,” he continued.
In 2013, Boxer Property entered three markets including New Orleans, Minneapolis and finished out the year with the acquisition of The Citadel, a 103,585 square foot building in the third market – Colorado Springs. In mid-February, the Houston-based commercial real estate company will gain 650,000 square feet of growth in Atlanta and Denver . Boxer intends to continue this growth pattern in 2014 and is actively seeking further acquisition opportunities across the U.S.
