Real estate veteran Pat Kelly has left his post as president of Redstone Commercial to join Franklin Street as regional managing partner for the Tampa Bay area.
In his new role, Kelly will oversee all operations for the Tampa office. He replaces Brad Robinson, who was promoted to Franklin Street’s chief learning and development officer in 2018. In the role, Kelly will be charged with growing all of Franklin Street’s lines of business — investment sales, capital advisory, insurance, property management, project management, and tenant and landlord representation services — as well as recruiting talent and building the Franklin Street brand throughout the Southeast and nationally.
He began his tenure at Franklin Street on Monday.
Kelly has a storied career in Tampa Bay. In 2014, he was inducted into NAIOP Tampa Bay’s Hall of Fame. He’s had a hand in several major developments in the Tampa Bay region, including the infrastructure work of Carillon Park, Highland Oaks, University of South Florida Research Park and Crescent Park. He’s also been involved in several large leases representing both tenants and landlords here: Franklin Templeton, GTE, Aegon, PBS&G, New York Life, URS Greiner and the Perot Group.
