"I think inthis period of time that we're looking at in the marketplace, theacquisition side of things will have a lot more opportunity in thenext two-to-three years," Tieman says. "This development group iswell-positioned for those types of acquisitions." He had been withTCB for nearly three years until recently, he says. There, Tiemanoversaw developments, including a retail center in Lockport,numerous industrial projects along Interstate 80 and in WestChicago, Bolingbrook and Romeoville, as well as office developmentsaround Tinley Park and Mokena.

"I'll be doing much of the same in terms of finding newdevelopment opportunities, but more focused on acquisition ofexisting product," Tieman says. "We believe there's going to besome value-add opportunistic acquisitions in the not-so-distantfuture, such as industrial, hotels, and other project types. We'llfind some good acquisition opportunities and, over the course oftime, build up the organization in terms of both people andassets."
