HOUSTON, TX - PM Realty Group (PMRG), a national, full-service commercial real estate firm, today announced that Wade Bowlin has been named Executive Vice President and Managing Director of the firm's Central Division.
As Executive Vice President and Managing Director of PMRG's Central Division, Mr. Bowlin will have oversight responsibility for all aspects of the division's operations including providing critical support for leasing, property and construction management initiatives as well as new business development and client relations for PMRG's portfolio of office, retail, medical and industrial properties; a portfolio that totals over 50 million square feet.
Mr. Bowlin joined PMRG in 2001 as Senior Vice President and was responsible for managing a portfolio of national clients consisting of office, retail and industrial product and was promoted four years later to Executive Vice President and Managing Director. Prior to joining PMRG in 2001, Mr. Bowlin was responsible for the marketing for the South Region of Kennedy-Wilson International for all office, industrial, retail and medical properties. Earlier in his career, Mr. Bowlin was responsible for the management and leasing operations for The Fults Company in Houston and Austin.
"Wade's expertise, professionalism and established record of real estate accomplishments have contributed greatly to the expansion of both the Central Division and PMRG's national presence. Over the last 9 years PMRG's portfolio grew by more than 35 percent, much of which is directly attributable to Wade's direct involvement in our business development and client retention efforts," said Jimmy Gunn, President of Property Services for PMRG.
Mr. Bowlin brings 24 years of experience in commercial real estate and has been responsible for the lease negotiation of many large transactions of over 100,000 square feet such as Shell Oil, EPCO, Conoco Phillips, BP Amoco, Litton Loan Servicing, Burlington Resources, CAL-Dive, STM Mortgage in Dallas, Texas, and TCIM in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mr. Bowlin has been named a "Power Broker" by the CoStar Group over the past several years and one of Houston's "Heavy Hitter's" by the Houston Business Journal for the past ten years.
Mr. Bowlin is a graduate of Texas Tech University and is a member of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), and the Urban Land Institute (ULI).
