Significant Assignments

Comerica - Strategic Real Estate Plan

Created and implemented a portfolio-wide cost reduction program to accelerate savings opportunities through the optimization of space, projecting $6.6 to $13.2M ($.03 to $.06 EPS) in gross run-rate savings opportunity.
Comerica - National Occupancy Audit

Organized a national occupancy inspection of 3.7M square feet to accurately quantify space usage into 5 primary categories.  Results showed site-by-site detail with a total surplus potential of 1.0M square feet and $33.1M ($.14 EPS) in annual occupancy expenses.

Comerica – RaCC Initiative (Rationalize|Consolidate|Close)

Developed a programmatic approach to drive consolidation / space reductions through site-by-site strategy development targeting the surplus potential identified in the National Occupancy Audit.  Strategies are developed for each site quantifying reduction targets, consolidation strategies, execution dates and run-rate savings impact.

Comerica – MarketStrike Initiative (Lease Renegotiation)

Initiated an early renewal initiative targeting leased locations expiring within 5 years where current rental rates are above market rental rates.  Lease extensions are strategically negotiated to leverage depressed market rents, generating annual run-rate savings opportunities.
