Duke Realty names VP of leasing and development for Ohio

Ben Struewing

Ben Struewing has been named vice president of leasing and development for the state of Ohio for Duke Realty Corporation. In his expanded role, Struewing will oversee all local market operations including property management and leasing of the existing properties in Cincinnati and Columbus.

“Ben’s track record of real estate success and his established reputation within the Ohio real estate community will be an asset in his expanded role,” said Steve Schnur, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Duke Realty. “Ben and the rest of our Cincinnati and Columbus teams are committed to providing our clients the highest level of service and fostering our broker and tenant relationships.”

Struewing joined Duke Realty in 1999 serving in various project management and leasing roles. His leasing success earned him several promotions, culminating with his being named vice president of leasing in 2009.

He left the company in 2011 to grow his career working for brokerage firms for eight years. Struewing was a senior vice president for JLL and most recently executive vice president of Investments in the Midwest/Eastern U.S. for Hackman Capital Partners before returning to Duke Realty in 2019.

Struewing returned to Duke Realty to lead operations in Columbus as vice president of leasing and development. Despite the COVID-19 crisis and subsequent challenging economic landscape, Struewing has continued the successful management of the Columbus portfolio and will now manage the entire 15.5 million square foot Ohio portfolio.
