Stephanie Harris Joins Levin Management as Vice President of Leasing
Firm Expands Executive Leadership Team During Period of Unparalleled Growth
NORTH PLAINFIELD, N.J., Nov. 19, 2018 – Levin Management Corporation (LMC) has appointed Stephanie Harris as vice president of leasing, announced Matthew K. Harding, company president. This key addition augments LMC’s executive leadership team during a period of strong growth and transactional volume for the commercial real estate services firm.
Based upon the company’s portfolio growth over the past year – including the addition of more than 1.4 million square feet in three states – the time was right to add the vice president of leasing position, noted Harding. Joseph Lowry, LMC’s senior vice president of acquisitions and business development, had been serving in an expanded role as head of the firm’s leasing department. Lowry will continue his focus on the expansion of LMC’s management and leasing portfolio, as well as acquisitions for clients, with Harris assuming responsibility for the oversight of LMC’s leasing team.
“LMC’s longevity in the real estate industry is a testament to management’s foresight and the company’s non-traditional corporate structure,” said Harris. “As vice president of leasing at LMC, I’ll be given the opportunity to round out my professional career. I’m very fortunate to be working with such a closely knit team that has been very successful working across a wide range of platforms.”
A resident of Millburn, N.J., Harris brings more than 20 years of related experience to her new role, including management positions in real estate acquisition, leasing and development with top national retailers including McDonald’s, Toys ‘R’ Us, The Home Depot and Life Time Fitness. Most recently, she was an associate with RIPCO Real Estate’s New Jersey office. Harris earned a bachelor’s degree in consumer economics and public policy from Cornell University. She is a long-time member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).
“We are pleased to welcome a results-driven professional of Stephanie’s caliber to Levin Management,” said Harding. “Her significant industry experience and strategic vision, coupled with her many long-term relationships with national and regional retailers, make her a perfect complement to our firm as we grow our executive team, portfolio, and landlord and tenant relationships.”
