Vaillancourt previously worked with Mid-America as the property manager of Shops of Grand Avenue in Milwaukee. As director of property management for the Wisconsin office, Vaillancourt will oversee the property management efforts of an existing 937,794-square-foot retail shopping center portfolio along with furthering business development. Additional job responsibilities will include day-to-day management functions, tenant relations, and budgeting for operational and capital expenditures.
“We are all very excited about the addition of Jim Vaillancourt to the Wisconsin office as Director of Property Management,” said Mid-America principal Dan Rosenfeld. “Jim’s position here locally reinforces our commitment to property management and the development of new asset management business in Wisconsin.”
Groff previously worked as the Marketing Manager at Shops of Grand Avenue for seven months. In her new position, she will act as a liaison among tenants, clients, local government, and the Wisconsin office on all property related matters. Groff, a University of Arizona graduate, is currently on the Westown Association Marketing and Events Committee.
