Atlantic Retail today announced the addition of Roger Puerto to the West Palm Beach office as Executive Vice President and Head of Investment Advisory. Roger brings with him more than 10 years of experience in real estate investing, analysis, and asset management. He will be tasked with pairing this expertise with Atlantic’s brokerage and advisory platform to reach new markets and asset classes in a rapidly-evolving industry.
Roger joins Atlantic after spending the previous 3 years as the Head of Real Estate Transactions at TransformCo and Sears Holdings Corporation where he was focused on maximizing value for the company’s real estate assets across the United States and Puerto Rico. At TransformCo and Sears Holdings Corporation, he has completed more than 120 transactions valued at more than $1bn across 34 states and Puerto Rico.
He has also held key roles at Fairholme Capital Management.
“I’m very excited to start this next chapter of my career with such a well-respected and established group as Atlantic,” said Roger. “The tenant and landlord relationships they have built, not only in Florida but nationally, are quite impressive and a great complement to the experience I have built through my career.”
“Roger’s particular expertise is something we’ve never really had at Atlantic,” said Daniel J. Lynch, Managing Partner — West Palm Beach. “His unique skill set and perspective are going to match quite well with our current tenant and landlord offerings. When coupled with our growing Atlantic Capital Markets platform, this will open new avenues for us to better serve clients in a rapidly evolving landscape.”
