Marc Kirchhoff, CCIM, a leading retail development expert, has joined Halpern Enterprises as Vice President.
Kirchhoff will spearhead Halpern’s build-to-suit retail development program, finding and developing locations for national tenants in the Southeast. He brings extensive retail real estate expertise to the company, having worked on projects in over 30 states on behalf of more than 50 national chains.
During his 19 years at Maly Commercial Realty in Columbia, Missouri, Kirchhoff was responsible for site selection, retail development and project management. In particular, he started the Lowe’s Peripheral Land Program and was the National Broker for 10 years, assisting retailers and restaurants in creating the right fit for developments in 34 states.
At Halpern, Kirchhoff and the development team will be responsible for taking projects from start to finish – from site acquisition to leasing to construction – for national retailers. The company has been expanding its development capabilities for several years, and Kirchhoff will lead the build-to-suit effort.
“We see a major opportunity for growth in retail development for Halpern, and Marc’s experience is perfect for leading these efforts,” said Bill Brown, President of Halpern Enterprises. “Every project is different in terms of matching needs with locations, and that’s why Marc’s extensive experience in working with major retailers is so important.”
Kirchhoff graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.S. in real estate and finance. He is a CCIM, a member of ICSC and the Developers Forum.
