BARRINGTON, IL-GK Development Inc. has brought Michael Lesiuk on to serve as VP of leasing. The real estate firm, which specializes in acquiring, redeveloping, managing and leasing well-located properties in emerging markets, has appointed Lesiuk to oversee leasing of four of its regional shopping centers. Lesiuk will be responsible for Columbia Mall in Grand Forks, ND; Lufkin Mall in Lufkin, TX; Peru Mall in Peru, IL; and Westland Mall in West Burlington, IA.

“The addition of an executive with Lesiuk’s background and retailer relationships complements our experienced leasing team as we aggressively market our properties,” Sherry Mast, SVP of leasing with GK Development, says.
