URG Tabs Bill Leedom as Senior Development Manager in Seattle

Commercial real estate firm Urban Renaissance Group LLC (URG) has expanded its leadership with the addition of industry veteran Bill Leedom to its Touchstone development team. As Senior Development Manager, Leedom will execute development strategies and plans as well as helping lead site and land acquisitions for multiple Touchstone projects.

“We’re excited to have Bill join our team. Many of us at URG have known and worked with Bill over many years. His experience allows us to immediately plug him into our existing development pipeline,” said Touchstone Managing Director Joe Polito.

A couple of the projects currently in the pipeline for Touchstone and URG include the Chapter Buildings life science project in Seattle’s University District and the Cascade Yard office campus in Bellevue, WA.

As a Seattle native, Leedom earned a Master’s of Business Administration from Columbia Business School and received a Bachelor’s from Claremont McKenna College.
