Regional Leasing Specialist

Publix Associate

Publix invests in real estate by purchasing some of the shopping centers where Publix stores are located, including adjacent tenant spaces and outparcels. Regional Leasing Specialists coordinate the search for tenants to lease spaces in these company-owned shopping centers.

How to Apply

Regional Leasing Specialists coordinate leasing and subleasing space from more than 100 Publix shopping centers and closed Publix stores. Each Specialist has an assigned geographical territory. They often travel to those areas to meet with new tenants, show spaces, and keep up with any changes in the trade area for the shopping center. If a potential tenant is interested in leasing a space, the Specialists evaluate the tenant's application, determine if the tenant conforms with the overall leasing strategy for the shopping center, and negotiate terms of the lease. The Specialists also handle renewal of leases for existing tenants whose leases are nearing expiration. In regard to closed stores, the Specialists sometimes negotiate a termination of the lease for a fraction of the overall obligation.
