Retail Properties of America, Inc. (RPAI) announced that Scott Miller has joined RPAI as vice president, director of development–western division. In this role, Miller will be responsible for identifying, evaluating and initiating new and existing real estate development opportunities in the company’s western division, which include the master plan development, design and operation of Class A mixed-use projects such as Main Street Promenade and Plaza del Lago in the Chicago metropolitan statistical area (MSA) and Southlake Town Square in the Dallas MSA.
“As we begin the next phase of value creation here at RPAI through densification and expansion of several existing high-quality assets, Scott’s experience in complex, mixed-use environments, as well as his deep understanding of REIT operating structure and capital allocation, make him the perfect fit to expand our development team,” said Shane Garrison, president and chief operating officer.
Miller joins RPAI with over 20 years of real estate finance, asset management and development experience, largely in the retail real estate sector, where he held positions at GGP, Westfield, and most recently, Lillibridge Healthcare Services. Miller received a B.A. in political science from Indiana University and an M.B.A. in real estate and urban land economics from the University of Wisconsin.
