I also supported the transportation team for a connector bus fleet rollout.At REI, I oversaw real estate growth and managed its portfolio of owned properties. I also supported the supply chain team when it acquired and opened a new distribution center, in addition to leasing, acquisitions and dispositions of retail and industrial properties.
