December 16, 2013 – Charlotte, NC – Trinity Partners, a commercial real estate firm with offices in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina, is opening its first South Carolina office later this month in Greenville, South Carolina.

Trinity Partners’ Greenville office will asset manage and property manage a 700,000 square foot office portfolio in Greenville’s Patewood and Brookfield Office Parks. Director of Property Management, Heather Thompson and her property management team will open the Greenville office on December 16th with plans to hire additional staff to support the new assignment. Nicole Oakley will manage the portfolio.

Trinity Partners leases and manages over 10 million square feet of office, industrial, and retail space across the Carolinas. The firm plans to continue its strategic growth across the region, and recently hired industry veteran Adam Colvin to serve as Managing Partner to guide the expansion. Plans include hiring a managing partner for the Greenville office and growing the Greenville service platform to offer investment sales, land sales, leasing services, and tenant representation.

Greenville isn’t new to Trinity Partners, as the firm’s sister company, investment firm Trinity Capital Advisors, owned a 746,000 SF industrial facility in Mauldin from 2007 through early 2013 before selling it to the building’s largest tenant.

“We love the Greenville area,” said Gary Chesson, Founding Partner of Trinity Partners. “We’ve watched it grow for years, and we’re excited to be a part of its growth and everything it has to offer,” Chesson added. “And thanks to the solid relationship our Raleigh Director of Property Management, Eve Pilkington, developed with Garrison through managing their Raleigh portfolio, we’re able to open up our Greenville office with a solid management portfolio.”

Founded by David Allen, Gary Chesson, and Peter Conway in 1998, Trinity Partners is made up of 81 commercial real estate professionals. In 2009, it opened its second office in Raleigh, and has steadily grown through strategic recruiting, service line expansion, and relationships with clients and institutional owners across the country, including TA Associates, TIER REIT, The Lionstone Group, Principal Global Investors, Stockbridge, Garrison Investment Group, Gramercy Property Trust, and Portman Holdings.
