In response to its growth, Fronteras announced the addition of Rolando Leal as vice president and Michael Trenary as associate.
"Retailers, developers and landlords need brokers who understand the area's Latino community, culture and purchasing trends and Fronteras provides this valuable knowledge coupled with our expertise in commercial real estate," said Founder Giovanni Palavicini. "We are pleased to have Rolando Leal and Michael Trenary join the Fronteras team and are committed to continued growth."
