The hiring boom continues for Franklin Street in Orlando.
Most recently, the commercial real estate company added T. Scott Williams to the team as General Manager in the office and industrial division. He has more than 15 years of real estate experience in property operations, client relations, leasing management and construction management.
“Scott is an extremely strong operator who gives building owners confidence that their assets are being well taken care of,” said Melissa Hazlewood, Franklin Street Vice President of Property Management in the Orlando office. “With his experience and talent, I believe he will be a critical element to us winning even more management contracts in Central Florida.”
“I’m excited to be part of the Franklin Street family, helping the company grow in the Orlando area by providing superior service to our clients,” said Williams. “Franklin Street’s client-first mantra really resonated with me, and I’m looking forward to growing the company’s service platform, both geographically and in capabilities.”
Prior to joining Franklin Street, Williams was Vice President and Group Manager with JLL in Florida, responsible for management and building operations of approximately 1.2 million square feet of Class A office in Orlando. Prior to JLL, he managed multiple Class A-Plus properties in Washington, D.C., Maryland and his native Virginia. During his career, he has successfully completed more than $18 million in capital improvements for a variety of clients.
“In addition to his strong operations and client management skills, Scott also stands out for his ability to oversee building construction projects,” said Hazlewood. “He has significant experience in project management which makes him very valuable to us. I fully expect we will use him across our platform, managing building projects for our retail and multifamily clients in addition to office and industrial properties.”
Williams has earned several management excellence awards including the highly coveted “Office Building of the Year” Award given out annually by the Building Owners and Management Association. Last year, he was named Property Manager of the Year by JLL.
Williams earned his Bachelor of Science in Communications from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.
