An industry professional in Southwest Florida since 1985, Albion spent the past 10 years with Cushman & Wakefield’s Fort Myers office, according to a statement. He specializes in office, medical office and hotel property types.
Alongside his real estate career, Albion got into politics. He was a Lee County commissioner from 1992 to 2006, where he also spent time as Lee County Port Authority commissioner. In the port role Albion, a Republican, oversaw the opening of the new terminal at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, the release states. Albion was also president of the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce from 2008 to 2012, according to his LinkedIn profile.
