DALLAS-Henry. S. Miller Commercial, once a lead player in the multifamily industry, is looking to regain a foothold by hiring a top executive who’s been on a hiatus for the last six months after exiting as the sales head for the Eastern Division at Fairfield Residential. Two other metroplex executives also find new jobs.

Armand Charbonneau has been named senior vice president of the apartment group, reporting to Robert Grunnah, president of the firm’s Investments/Land Division. Charbonneau tells GlobeSt.com that “my vision is to restore Henry S. Miller to the prominence that it once had.” A decade ago, the firm was leading the Dallas-Fort Worth pack, says Charbonneau.

Charbonneau will be working alongside Robert Stone, head of Henry S. Miller Commercial’s senior housing/multifamily division. Stone’s specialty is senior housing so Charbonneau’s hire is a nice fit for the team since he will be focusing on the buying and selling of apartments.

For 8 1/2 years, Charbonneau sold more than $1.2 billion as head of Fairfield Residential’s Eastern team. Six months ago, he took a hiatus to spend time with his family. Now, it’s time to “get back in the game,” he says.

The Henry S. Miller Commercial multifamily team now numbers five. In recent weeks, Mark Porterfield, formerly with Marcus & Millichap in Dallas, was hired as a vice president. With the team in place, the goal now is to increase the listings, Charbonneau emphasizes.

Trammell Crow Co. in Dallas loses a main player, but picks up one well-known professional for the Fort Worth office. Dick Myers, named senior associate, will be leasing the 106,000-sf Neil P. Anderson building at 411 W. 7th St. Myers has been part of the Fort Worth business and real estate community for 25 years. He most recently worked in brokerage and marketing for the Kim Martin Co. in Fort Worth.

The Trammell Crow-managed property is 58% leased, says Jim Eagle, senior vice president of the firm’s Fort Worth office. “So there is a lot of upside for a leasing person,” he tells GlobeSt.com.

Eagle confides that a few new leases could break after the first of the year. Today, the lead tenants are KnightRidder.com, BF Goodrich Landing Gear Division and Thomas Reprographics.

Meanwhile, Trammell Crow lost Jeffrey C. Chavez to Sarofim Realty Advisors in Dallas. Chavez was senior managing director of national acquisitions. He has been named senior vice president for Sarofim, where he will be responsible for acquisitions, asset management and dispositions. He also was accorded a seat on Sarofim’s investment committee.

Trammell Crow executives were not available for comment on Chavez’s exit or his replacement. The Dallas-based brokerage firm, however, has been trimming costs through attrition so it’s possible the job will stay dark. He worked for Trammell Crow from 1986 to 1996 and rejoined as a senior executive for the development and investment group in August 2002.
