Direct accountability for maximizing the asset value of 11 grocery or pharmacy anchored shopping centres totalling 925,000 SF, delivering on average 108 – 110% of proforma budget.

In a down market Matt played a key role in the re-positioning of a 205,000 SF retail shopping center in the interior of BC resulting in a 15% increase in NOI and successful sale of the centre to a national REIT.
In Duncan, led a team that successfully revitalized a shopping through the aggressive leasing of 45,000 SF to national Tenants that not only impacted the high vacancy rate, though also eliminated interior common area and increased the total leasable area by 7%.
In View Royal, transformed a chronically vacant shopping centre from 43% vacant to 100% leased which resulted in a quick sale of the centre to a regional fund.
