Milwaukee’s Irgens adds chief marketing officer

Milwaukee-based developer Irgens has added a chief marketing officer to its roster.

Steve Palec will join Irgens as chief marketing officer. Palec is responsible for guiding marketing and branding for Irgens and building the company’s image as a healthcare and commercial real estate developer.

A 35-year real estate veteran, Palec joins Irgens from Colliers International, where he was involved in many prominent office transactions in Southeastern Wisconsin. He represented GE Healthcare in the lease of 500,000 square feet, assisted Manpower in its corporate headquarters project and facilitated Baker Tilly’s move to downtown Milwaukee.

Most recently, Palec worked with Irgens on the BMO Tower in Milwaukee, which is under construction.
