I look forward to building on their successes and providing new momentum for their business development efforts,” said Aumiller. “A leader in leasing, sales, and tenant advisory for more than four decades, MacKenzie has earned an outstanding reputation for visionary business solutions and lasting relationships with our clients. I am thrilled to continue and expand on this tradition of exemplary service,” he added.
