Jamie has been with Browning Investments Inc. since 1986. Prior to being appointed Vice President of Real Estate Development, he acted as Property Manager and most recently Asset Manager. In between listening to Neil Young and Eric Clapton and walking his two dogs Divot and Elwood, he has managed over two million square feet of Class A downtown office and retail space, and three multi-story parking facilities. How’s that for multi-tasking?

A quote from the movie Wall Street still sticks with him: “We’re all just one trade away from humility.”
