Brendon Dedekind has been hired as Senior Vice President for the new office, which will operate out of Orlando and develop in key markets throughout Central Florida. Dedekind will focus initially on sourcing and executing a variety of industrial developments throughout the region, including both speculative and build-to-suit projects.
“We are thrilled to be re-establishing a presence in Central Florida. We believe the state’s pro-business structure, the competitive cost of doing business, quality of life with affordable cost of living, the abundance of talented and diverse workers, and the dynamic economy will cause the robust population and job growth to continue for quite some time. Many of our national occupier and investor clients want to grow their footprint in this region and we are now well positioned to effectively serve these and new prospective clients,” said Adam Saphier, President for TCC’s Eastern Operations.
“Brendon is a great addition to the TCC leadership team. His industrial development expertise in the local market and excellent reputation for his integrity and work ethic will be crucial to our firm’s early success and our eventual expansion into other product types, such as multifamily development.”
A 20-year industry veteran, Dedekind joins TCC from Prologis, where he most recently served as Vice President, Market Officer. In this role, he managed $2 billion worth of real estate assets and had responsibility over the acquisition, development, management, disposition, and overall brand/relationship management of these assets.
