Avison Young made two executive appointments in its Charlotte office, naming Ted Haley a principal and A.J. Whitehead a vice president.
Haley most recently served as a vice president for corporate real estate services firm Lincoln Harris in Charlotte. A 13-year industry veteran, Haley steps into his new role with a focus on representing owners and end users of industrial space. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is a licensed broker in North and South Carolina.
Whitehead comes to Avison Young from Grubb Properties, where he served as a commercial broker facilitating the sale, marketing and leasing of 500,000 square feet of commercial space in Charlotte. In his career, which includes serving as a vice president with Jones Lang LaSalle, Whitehead has negotiated 1.2 million square feet in lease transactions totaling more than $100 million. He will now lead office tenant-representation services as a vice president with Avison Young.
Whitehead earned a bachelor's degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing and management information systems from Miami University in Oxford, OH.
Toronto-based Avison Young established its first offices in North Carolina in 2012, opening branches in Raleigh and Chapel Hill following its acquisition of Raleigh-based Thomas Linderman Graham. The company opened its Charlotte office in May 2013 with Christopher Skibinski serving as principal.
