The Dartmouth Company & Atlas Real Estate Join Together
The Dartmouth Company & Atlas Real Estate Join Together to Launch Premier Property Management Division
The Dartmouth Company and Bedford-based Atlas Commercial Real Estate announced today that the two companies have merged to create Dartmouth Property Management, LLC, a premier, full-service commercial and retail property management and advisory division of The Dartmouth Company.
Headquartered in Boston and operating throughout the Northeastern United States, Dartmouth Property Management will represent private and institutional landlords in buying, selling, leasing, building, adding value and managing their respective properties.
The new division is led by Atlas founder and commercial real estate veteran Robert Macnamara, who brings nearly three decades of experience in construction, logistics, leasing and asset management. He has successfully negotiated more than 10 million square feet of commercial, industrial and retail lease, working with a wide range of tenants including Verizon, Comcast, FedEx, Urban Outfitters/Anthropologie, Peoples United Bank, Legal Seafood’s, Planet Fitness and David’s Tea, among others.
“I’m thrilled to join The Dartmouth Company to launch this new division and deliver the kind of high-quality, client-focused service Dartmouth is known for,” Macnamara said. “Our team has the experience, regional expertise and the depth of knowledge to deliver the successful management plans and services our wide range of clients deserve.”
Before founding Atlas in 2011, Macnamara was Senior Vice President of Boston-basedCresset Development. Macnamara also served as Chief Operating Officer for KS Partners LLC, and President of Wellesley Management Corporation. There, he oversaw the renovation and development of the one million sq. ft. Clock Tower Place in Maynard, taking it from vacant to 100 percent leased within 20 months. Macnamara served as Executive Director of the Bayside Expo Center in Boston — then the City’s largest convention and expo center — and has managed and developed several resort condominium projects, multifamily, restaurant and hotel properties.
The creation of Dartmouth Property Management will expand Dartmouth’s portfolio of highly-specialized commercial real estate services to better serve its clients. The Dartmouth Company founding partner Sean Gildea said the addition of Dartmouth Property Management will allow the company to continue to innovate and add value for its clients.
“This is an exciting move for us, and we’re delighted to have Bob on the team,” Gildea said. “His expertise, deep relationships and commitment to client satisfaction will help Dartmouth execute on its mission to offer fully-integrated, best-in-class service to clients of all sizes.”
