Industry veterans Ted Haley and A.J. Whitehead join Avison Young in Charlotte

Additions expand firm's industrial and office presence in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - John Linderman, Avison Young Principal and Managing Director of the company's North Carolina offices, announced today that commercial real estate veterans Ted Haley and A.J. Whitehead have joined the company in Charlotte.

Effective immediately, Haley joins Avison Young as a Principal, specializing in industrial brokerage. Whitehead will serve as a Vice-President in Charlotte and will spearhead office tenant-representation services. Haley and Whitehead have a combined 24 years of commercial real estate industry experience.

"We are extremely pleased to have Ted Haley and A.J. Whitehead join our growing operation in Charlotte," comments Linderman. "They are proven professionals in the Charlotte market, and their comprehensive commercial real estate experience and in-depth knowledge of the local market will enhance our ability to provide best-in-class service to our valued clients."

Haley and Whitehead will work as part of a team headed by Avison Young Principal Christopher Skibinski, who joined Avison Young in 2013 to help grow the Charlotte office as well as lead all industrial transactions in North Carolina.

"Chris has built an incredibly strong team in Charlotte in a short amount of time," adds Linderman. "We are excited about now being able to offer our clients a full scope of real estate service solutions across North Carolina."

Avison Young opened its first offices in North Carolina in October 2012 in Raleigh and Chapel Hill when the company acquired Raleigh-based Thomas Linderman Graham Inc. The acquisition added 60 employees to Avison Young's operations, with Linderman joining as a Principal and Managing Director of the Raleigh-Durham offices. The company opened the Charlotte office in May 2013 with Skibinski joining as a Principal.

"The additions of Ted and A.J. expand Avison Young's industrial and office presence in Charlotte. Their arrival demonstrates Avison Young's increasing commitment to the Charlotte market and serves as another important step in the execution of our company's aggressive growth plan," states Skibinski.

Haley brings 13 years of commercial real estate experience to Avison Young.  He most recently served as a Vice-President for Lincoln Harris in Charlotte where he focused on representing owners and end users of office and industrial space.  In his new role he will solely focus on all facets of the industrial sector.

Haley holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is a licensed broker in both North Carolina and South Carolina and serves as a member of the Charlotte Region Commercial Board of Realtors.

"I am thrilled to join Avison Young as it continues its aggressive expansion across the U.S.," says Haley. "I am particularly excited for the opportunity to become part of the company's ownership group and to participate in its principal-led culture."

Whitehead joins Avison Young from Grubb Properties, where he was a senior commercial broker overseeing the sales, marketing and leasing of the company's 500,000-square-foot commercial portfolio in the Charlotte region. Prior to that, he served as a Vice-President for Jones Lang LaSalle. Whitehead has negotiated 1.2 million square feet of lease transactions valued in excess of $100 million in various parts of the country, including New York City, Chicago and Charlotte.

Whitehead is a graduate of Miami University in Oxford, OH, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing and management information systems. He is currently a member of the Charlotte Region Commercial Board of Realtors and is a licensed real estate professional in both North Carolina and South Carolina.

"The ongoing growth of Avison Young throughout North America has been exciting to witness, and I look forward to enhancing the company's expansion efforts in the Charlotte region," says Whitehead. "Avison Young's culture of collaboration across offices and service lines will be a tremendous asset in providing the highest caliber of service possible to clients."

Today's announcement comes on the heels of Avison Young acquiring Atlanta-based The Eidson Group yesterday.

Over the past five years, Avison Young has grown from 11 to 53 offices and from 300 to more than 1,500 real estate professionals across Canada and the U.S.

Avison Young is the world's fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Avison Young is a collaborative, global firm owned and operated by its principals. Founded in 1978, the company comprises 1,500 real estate professionals in 53 offices, providing value-added, client-centric investment sales, leasing, advisory, management, financing and mortgage placement services to owners and occupiers of office, retail, industrial and multi-family properties.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
