Once development is complete, Lex oversees leasing and management, ensuring the asset’s performance matches the objectives of the client’s business plan.

His relationships with key players and his discerning insight into the local market make him an invaluable advisor to institutional investors and family offices alike.

He later played a similar role for the Western U.S. region as a partner in Kennedy Associates Real Estate Council.
