BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, January 30 – Daniel Corporation, one of the Sunbelt Region’s most active real estate development, management, and investment firms, announced today they have hired Genevieve Douglass as Director of Leasing and Brokerage to handle all landlord representation assignments for company-owned assets, as well as, its clients.

Prior to Daniel, Douglass was a Director at a commercial real estate firm in New Orleans for several years where she teamed on development deals and projects, and as a licensed agent, supported the brokerage team with landlord and tenant representation of retail, office and industrial leasing, and specialized in off-market acquisitions.

“With the Birmingham office market showing strong signs of recovery from the pandemic interruption, Geneveive could not be joining the Daniel team at a better time,” said Carter Bryars, COO at Daniel Corporation, ” We are excited to continue to provide our existing clients with first class representation, as well as, continuing to grow the leasing and brokerage business at Daniel.”

The 18,298 square foot FirstBank lease at Daniel’s Financial Center office building announced at the end of 2022, is supporting evidence of the recent strengthening of the Birmingham office market. The lease, brokered by Daniel (and in conjunction with Colliers), will add jobs and provide a significant economic impact for downtown Birmingham during this return-to-office phase of post-pandemic life.

“I am honored to be a part of the Daniel team and to be welcomed into the CRE industry here in Birmingham,” said Douglass. “It is great to be back in Birmingham. Being a former CBD condo owner, I have always been a huge proponent of living and working downtown, and I am delighted to see the progress made in the last decade. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to not only work with Daniel’s current portolfio, but grow the brokerage business for the firm as well.”

Daniel acquired The Financial Center in 2016. Located in the Central Business District of Downtown Birmingham, The Financial Center is 311,000 SF and 18-stories. This institutional quality asset is one of a handful of elite office buildings in downtown Birmingham located near the various courthouses and other institutional users. Daniel’s offices are located on the 10 th floor of the building. Daniel completed new or renewed leases totaling in more than 90,000 square feet in 2022, and the building is currently 88.5% leased.
