Aztec Group, Inc. announced the promotion of executive Jason Katz to Vice President.
In this role, Katz will focus on executing land sales and commercial real estate acquisitions across Florida, particularly in the South Florida market, and asset management of real estate investments on behalf of Mayan Properties, Aztec’s investment affiliate.
Jason joined Aztec Group in 2012 as an associate, supporting asset management of the Mayan’s substantial office and multifamily portfolios and working with local, regional and national multifamily developers, investors, and property owners to generate sales and financing opportunities on behalf of Aztec.
Since coming onboard, Mr. Katz has closed multiple land transactions in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood and is currently working on sales valued at over $40 million in and around the City’s urban core.
“Aztec Group’s success as a leading real estate investment and financing firm stems from the hard work and dedication of our team and Jason has represented an integral part of our firm’s growth over the past three years,” said Luis Benitez, Aztec’s Chief Operating Officer. “Jason’s promotion reflects his strong deal-making performance, long-term commitment to the company and drive to support the firm’s continued success in South Florida’s competitive real estate financing sector.”
Mr. Katz is actively involved in one of the nation’s premier real estate networking organizations, the Urban Land Institute.
