We recently announced the addition of five new logistics real estate experts to lead the Southeast Region office.
Wes Hardy has joined the company as Southeast Region Partner, managing the day-to-day operations of the region. He is responsible for the sourcing and execution of acquisition, development and redevelopment opportunities throughout the Southeast U.S., with a focus on Atlanta and several other key Southeast logistics markets. In this role, Hardy also manages the existing portfolio through asset management and customer relations for the region. Previously Senior Vice President of the Southeast Region at Duke Realty, Hardy was at the helm of all real estate operations of Duke Realty’s 26 million-square-foot portfolio in the Atlanta, Savannah and Nashville markets. During his 20-year career with the company, Hardy held various roles in finance, leasing, development and asset management.
“I am excited about this opportunity to work with the talented and experienced team at Dermody Properties,” said Hardy. “The growing Southeast region of the country will provide great opportunities for new acquisitions and developments, and our team looks forward to creating well-positioned logistics real estate for our customers.”
