TAMPA — Flagship Healthcare Properties, a Charlotte, N.C.-based commercial real estate firm specializing in health care properties, has opened an office in Tampa and appointed Mavis Giska, whose title will be regional vice president of property management, to run it.
According to a press release, the move is part of Flagship’s broader effort to divide its property management business into three distinct, regional organizations, each of which will be overseen by a vice president responsible for directing in-house and third-party managers, managing contractor and vendor services and working directly with property owners and tenants.
“Over the past few years, we’ve been focusing on growing our business both internally and externally,” states Joseph Shull, Flagship partner and executive vice president of property management, in the release. “As our client portfolio continues to increase throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, so does our need to offer these clients more accessible, on-site support and dedicated staff members.”
According to the release, Giska, who’s been with Flagship for six years, previously served as vice president of property management and oversaw the firm’s entire portfolio of managed properties. She has since relocated to Tampa to manage the firm’s new office, which opened in June. The company also has an office in Richmond, Va.
“Our people are our greatest asset at Flagship, and we’re excited to see these strong leaders embrace and grow our newly created regional structure,” states Brannen Edge, co-managing partner and president of Flagship, in the release. “With new locations and a more efficient organizational structure, we can better serve our clients, connect with prospects and continue growing our team and our geographic footprint.”
Flagship, the release states, manages more than 3.9 million square feet of health care real estate and serves some 460 tenants. The firm has developed or acquired more than 75 properties valued at more than $600 million.
