Next Generation Honoree: KBS’ Copulos Sees Transformation Potential in Properties
Clint Copulos functions as an SVP with responsibility for acquisitions and asset management of KBS properties in Denver, Portland and Seattle. He has demonstrated an ability to see a property that may be struggling under prior ownership, and how that property can be transformed to create a best-in-class tenant experience, which is good for the property, the community, the tenants and ultimately for KBS and its investors.
That’s just one of the reasons we chose Copulos to be one of the National 2018 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s second annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
Within the first 18 months of Copulos accepting the role of asset manager, KBS acquired three well-located office buildings in a highly competitive market, Portland, beginning with the Commonwealth Building. He oversaw the renovation of the entire property within 12 months, completing the project with remarkable speed, quality and efficiency.
Today, Copulos is responsible for 20 properties totaling over 2.5 million square feet, and epitomizes the spirit of leadership and esprit de corps that KBS is known for. Not only has he handled his role as an asset manager skillfully, but as a former athlete, Copulos helped KBS start its first health and wellness program, which features monthly events that have had a positive impact on the firm corporately.
