A regional search is underway for Stiles Realty’s next leader, according to Stiles Chairman and CEO Terry Stiles.
“After 27 years heading our Realty operations, Tom Kates informed us he wants to shed his executive responsibilities and focus on what he loves doing – the transactional side of the business,” Stiles said. “He’ll help us find Stiles Realty’s next President and take some time off for himself, then return here to concentrate on negotiating major transactions. Tom’s legacy sets the bar high.”
Kates led Stiles Realty’s expansion as a premier commercial real estate brokerage firm from Miami-Dade throughPalm Beach counties. The Stiles organization’s strategic plan calls for continued dynamic growth of its third-party brokerage business, Stiles added.
For the right top executive, this is an outstanding opportunity to be a key player in one of Florida’s largest, most respected private real estate development firms – and one of the state’s few full-service commercial real estate companies.
Kates assured us that while he may briefly be out of sight, he intends to continue interacting with friends and colleagues in the brokerage community. His message to brokers: “I’ve already had a great run, Stiles is a great company, and I’ll be back and eager to work with you on future opportunities”
