Atlanta-based tenant representation firm Scotland Wright Associates has tapped Mike Davis as the firm’s newest partner and first director of community initiatives. In his new role, Davis will lead client transactions, support business development and drive the firm’s community involvement strategy.
A former member of the SWA team from 2014 to 2017, Davis founded Nucleus Capital in 2018, a successful tenant representation firm focused on clients positively impacting their communities. After three years developing a strong client base in Atlanta and beyond, Davis has rejoined SWA’s team. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its challenges, SWA’s client pipeline is at a historic high, pointing to continued future growth and the need for a fifth partner.
“Rejoining SWA means their clients and mine, now our clients, benefit from diversity of thought,” said Davis. “There is no other group of Atlanta-based, senior-level tenant reps working as a collaborative unit on transactions. SWA’s team model sets us apart in terms of the value we offer clients. Plus, I am thrilled to tap into my personal passion for giving back as I shape SWA’s community impact strategy.”
