Coming off its 25-year anniversary celebration with an aggressive strategy to expand its service-centric business model, Coreland Companies is poised for explosive growth in the coming year.
Coreland’s real estate management and brokerage teams closed 2015 with tremendous momentum. Year end saw the addition of 800,000 square feet of real estate management assignments, while the leasing team booked over 100 deals in 2015, adding 16 properties to its listing portfolio.
“We are extremely pleased with the opportunities we’ve been awarded, and especially appreciative of those clients we’ve grown with throughout our first 25 years,” shares Coreland Co-Founder and President Chris Hite. “To support our growth and maintain our commitment to clients, it is imperative to have the best leadership structure in place.”
Among the moves, Matt Hammond has been named Partner and elevated to Senior Vice President. Hammond, who first began with the company as an intern in 1996, has led the retail brokerage department for the past 10 years, guiding its growth and expansion as one of Southern California’s leading teams.
“Matt is the first shareholder added from within the company since its inception 26 years ago,” shared Coreland Co-Founder and Executive Vice President Patrick Galentine. “He established his place as an integral part of the firm long ago, and as Senior Vice President he’ll continue to expand and strengthen Coreland’s position in the marketplace.”
Hammond and his team have been ranked among CoStar’s Power Brokers and Brokerage Firms for nine of the last 10 years.
In another key move, Cheryl Todd has been promoted to Senior Vice President, continuing to oversee all aspects of Coreland’s real estate management division and operations.
“We have expanded our leadership team in a way that balances continuity in key positions and the elevation of leaders from within the company,” shared Galentine. “Cheryl is a key driver within our organization, ensuring that our management teams continue to provide the highest quality of services.”
Throughout her career, which included 12 years in Asset Management with Catellus Development Corporation before joining Coreland, Todd has overseen the management of more than $1.5 billion commercial real estate assets.
“We have always been committed to enhancing the services we provide and supporting smart growth,” said Hite. “For that reason, we have also elevated Vicky Hammond to the new role of Vice President of Client Services.
“In this capacity she will lead Coreland’s growth strategies with a focus on client relations, new business development, and the internal implementation of best practices to meet changing demands.”
In this new role, (Vicky) Hammond also maintains responsibility for the company’s overall marketing and public relations efforts.
“We have great confidence in the expertise of our leaders and their commitment to providing best-in-class service,” shared Galentine.
