Jim and his team typically structured and negotiated 140+ transactions annually and focused on the company’s real estate assets as investments; but only after the strategic facility needs of each business were met; implementing complex acquisition, development, finance and public/private transaction structures, in many cases involving multiple linked negotiations.
