Chicago — Starwood Retail Partners has promoted Jonathan Kaplan to vice president of leasing.
In his new role, Kaplan will oversee the leasing efforts for the company’s eight open-air shopping center properties. The move establishes the creation of a fourth leasing division for Starwood Retail, joining those focused on enclosed projects, restaurant and entertainment leasing and specialty leasing.
Kaplan joined Starwood Retail as senior director of leasing in March 2016. Before joining the company, he held positions at Simon Property Group, KRC LLC and New England Development.
“Starwood Retail is known for its innovative leasing, as shown by the creation of this new division, “ said Kaplan in a release. “Open-air centers already feel like Main Street retailing, and I’m excited to take on this new challenge.”
