Oak Brook, Ill. — A&G Realty Partners has formed a joint venture with leading grocery real estate executive Joe McKeska.
The new venture — titled Elkhorn Real Estate Partners — will be based in Oak Brook, and will work to drive value for retailers and investors through repositioning, recapitalizing, reinvesting in and restructuring portfolios and assets.
Prior to joining with A&G, McKeska headed the real estate operations of Southeastern Grocers LLC and Supervalu Inc. The new joint venture will leverage advanced data and analysis, including unique, location-based modeling and geospatial data.
“Working with the best data firms in the business, Elkhorn merges leading-edge research with Joe’s decades of experience in retail strategy and analysis to create unique deliverables for our clients,” says Emilio Amendola, co-president of A&G. “The end result is enormously useful. It connects the dots to ensure that real estate portfolios truly support operational success.”
