DALLAS-A spate of “new deals” has brought some big name changes for the dealmakers in Dallas-Fort Worth.

At FirstWorthing, Joe Martin is on board as vice president of investment management. He was a senior asset manager in charge of a 9,200-unit multifamily portfolio for Archon Residential, which has been selling the package in blocks.

At FirstWorthing, Martin will focus on the Eastern US. “Additionally, he’ll be a key player in setting the strategy of our investment plan as we move forward,” says Greg Cason, executive vice president of acquisitions for the Dallas-based company.

Insignia/ESG officially comes out with word that Rick Rensi has joined the team. Street talk had Rensi being part of the Insignia-structured deal in the first quarter on the Dallas component of the Mack-Cali sell-off.

Rensi’s role at Insignia is managing director of leasing, with the traded 3100 Monticello and Metroport being tossed into his stack of duties for 650,000 sf. Rensi, who has two decades of experience in the profession, has been leasing those properties for the last eight years as part of a one-million-sf portfolio that he oversaw for Mack-Cali Realty, headquartered in Cranford, NJ.

Dallas-based Staubach Co. hired a leader for an industrial effort being steered from its Irvine, CA office. August “Augie” Napolitano is building a team that could have as many as 50 brokers in multiple offices. He left as managing director of Grubb & Ellis Co.’s Newport Beach office to steer the national initiative.

Plano-based Hill & Wilkinson Ltd., one of the region’s leading general contractors, promoted Gary Barnhill and Peyton Boddie as project managers. Barnhill, a 17-year veteran, gets the specialty concrete group and Boddie, the small projects group. Their new duties entail day-to-day liaison between owners and architects on jobs for their respective divisions. Both joined the firm in 2000.

Recent changes at HQ Global Workplaces put David Lloyd in as Texas president. He is managing multiple office centers in the DFW region. Lloyd previously was senior vice president of operations and human resources for the ViaLink Co.

HQ Global also put Lisa Malvea in as senior vice president of sales. She is tasked with steering the efforts of HQ’s national sales centers as well as business and client development and the sales team. She also oversees premier accounts. She previously was CEO and CFO for NextChapter Biz Inc., a consulting firm.

PW Funding Inc., headquartered in New York City, slid William E. Cave in as a vice president. Based in Dallas, he is responsible for originating Fannie Mae DUS business in the Southwest US. He previously worked at Churchill Capital.

JPI promoted Collette Strange to senior vice president of PeopleWorks, the firm’s human resources division. She has worked at the JPI headquarters in Irving for the last six years.
