The Atlanta Braves organization recently retained leading nationwide search firm Millman Search Group, Inc. to hire the general manager for the mixed-use development adjacent to SunTrust Park. The development will be the first-ever mixed-use community to open in tandem with a major league venue. Both are slated to open in the spring of 2017.
Under the agreement, Millman Search Group is charged with identifying and placing a knowledgeable and successful executive with in-depth experience managing mixed-use properties, malls or town centers. This individual will be responsible for the management and oversight of the mixed-use development planned adjacent to SunTrust Park that will include specialty retail and restaurants, the Roxy Theatre, an approximately 260-room four-star Omni Hotel, a nine-story office space, and approximately 600 upscale residences.
“The Atlanta Braves are setting a new high standard for professional sports venues across the nation, and we are honored to be a part of this monumental project,” said Mark Millman, President and CEO of Millman Search Group. “As the first of its kind, this unique mixed-use development requires a reputable general manager with proven year-over-year success overseeing various mixed-use formats, including retail, restaurants, residences, hotels and Class A office buildings. We are seeking a best-in-class individual with the industry competence and professional confidence to bring this project to fruition, facilitate a grand opening, and provide ongoing oversight for continued success.”
Millman Search Group has more than 30 years of experience in successfully placing senior-level professionals across the shopping center and commercial real estate, hospitality, entertainment, retail, luxury retail and wholesale industries. Millman Search Group hired the general manager of Miracle Mile Mall in Las Vegas, one of the most successful shopping malls in the country.
