In my current position as a Senior Vice President representing an Institutional investor I had the opportunity to team with Bill Morris on the acquisition and redevelopment of La Palmera Mall in Corpus Christi, Texas. La Palmera Mall is a one million square foot center with three Department Stores. This was a very complex transaction that required negotiating new anchor agreements, public subsidies, joint venture agreements and loan modifications.
From the onset Bill created an environment of cooperation for all stakeholders. This approach led to enhanced productivity and a positive atmosphere throughout the duration of a very successful project.
Bill possesses the ability to see the vision for a property and the skill set required to lead during implementation and execution to ensure the realization of the vision.
I found Bill to be off the highest integrity and thoroughly enjoyed our relationship on a complex project. He listened and strove to help all the stakeholders meet their expectations for the investment. La Palmera is performing very well and has been a success for all involved.
I would certainty work with Bill again in the future.
