Birmingham-based Bayer Properties has hired Lindsay Vetzner as vice president of Anchor Leasing to oversee big box leasing and development efforts across the firm’s 10 million-square-foot portfolio. Vetzner will be based in Bayer’s mid-Atlantic office in Philadelphia, joining Senior Vice President of National Key Accounts Nikki Columbo, as the company focuses on growing its leadership team and expanding its national footprint.
Vetzner joins Bayer after a six-year tenure with Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT) where he led the big box and outparcel leasing efforts for a 22 million-square-foot portfolio. While at PREIT, Vetzner successfully leased over 1.3 million square feet, including eight redeveloped Sears, Macy’s and JCPenney anchor stores.
“While COVID-19 certainly accelerated the decline of many retailers, those in the big box sector are still thriving; especially in the discounted goods category,” said Vetzner. “People still crave the in-store shopping experience, and we think that’s only going to get stronger over the next several months. I’m excited to join Bayer’s team of all-star leasing pros and establish an innovative approach toward anchor leasing.”
