Industry Veterans To Open Orlando Office For Atlantic Retail

Atlantic Retail, a national retail real estate brokerage and advisory firm based in Massachusetts, announced that John Dottore and Suzanne Pinel Washburn have been named Partners and will open Atlantic’s seventh regional office. Located in Orlando, this will be Atlantic’s second office in Florida and will enhance its service offerings throughout the state. Dottore joins Atlantic from The Shopping Center Group where he was the Operating Partner for the state of Florida. He is an industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience, having managed both his own brokerage firm as well as regional offices for larger national firms. Dottore is a tenant representation specialist and currently represents Athleta, AutoZone, Best Buy, Car Max, Costco, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy, LA Fitness, Old Navy, PetSmart, and Snooze AM Café Sprouts Farmers Market.  

“Atlantic’s reputation with both retailers and landlords throughout the United States is top tier and here in Florida is no exception,” said Dottore. “This partnership with Suzanne and Atlantic allows me to better serve my clients by giving them both the extended reach of the Atlantic platform and the flexibility of expanded service offerings.”

Washburn comes to Atlantic from CBRE where she held the position of Senior Vice President. During her career, spanning more than 30 years, she has worked for national and regional retailers in their site acquisition and excess space disposition requirements. For more than two decades, she has been the lead point of contact for Target’s excess space disposition throughout the southeast and select national markets. She has also worked with retailers such as Kohl’s, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Office Depot, Walgreens, 24 Hour Fitness, and Wawa.  

“I’m excited to partner with John and use our Central Florida expertise to augment Atlantic’s terrific coverage throughout the state,” said Washburn. “We have many shared relationships which will only be strengthened in the years to come.”


“We’re really happy to have John and Suzanne join the Atlantic team,” said Daniel J Lynch, Managing Partner – West Palm Beach. “They each bring a stellar track record of performance, impeccable reputations, and deep relationships, which will be a great complement to our team in South Florida.”

This new venture will mark a reunion of sorts for Dottore and Washburn. They previously worked together at CBRE in the late 90s and have enjoyed a close working relationship ever since. The pair will be joined in their new office by Mara Frumkin, formerly of The Shopping Center Group. Mara Represents Tropical Smoothie, Venetian Nail Spa, Geico, Cookies, and I Heart Mac N Cheese. As a combined unit, the team will be focused on offering tenant representation and third-party leasing services throughout the state of Florida as well as site (land) acquisition and disposition. When combined with Atlantic’s current West Palm Beach office, the firm will have 11 brokers representing more than 60 retailers and 90 retail sites/centers.
