ATLANTA-Less than two weeks after being named vice chairman of Cousins Properties Inc., Dan DuPree has resigned in order to pursue another position within the real estate industry. Details on his next position were not available. The resignation will be effective as of March 15, according to the locally based REIT.

DuPree left the company once during that time, from 2002 to 2003, in order to pursue a position as CEO of Barry Real Estate Cos.

Dupree was not available for comment on Tuesday. He told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that stepping down had been planned for a long period of time in order to allow the next generation of leadership at Cousins to rise.
