Houston, TX, February 2, 2022 – NAI Partners—the commercial real estate services business of Partners Real Estate Company—today announced that it has hired veteran property management leader Cliff Parker as Senior Vice President of Operations for its Property Services Division.

Mr. Parker will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the entirety of NAI Partners’ property management portfolio across Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. He will report directly to Branon Pesnell, who the company handpicked in November to lead its Property Services Division.

Mr. Parker has a wealth of experience managing commercial properties of all sizes and classes, and was most recently with CBRE, where he oversaw the management of 310,000-sq.-ft. 3009 Post Oak Boulevard.

“Cliff employs exemplary skills in adding value to his clients’ properties through collaboration with the property teams to establish rental rate parameters, execute marketing and tenant retention plans, control operating expenses, manage leasing and marketing programs, and implement value-add capital programs,” said Mr. Pesnell.

Added Mr. Pesnell, “Additionally, Cliff is truly ‘battle-tested,’ having led multiple major property management and business continuity efforts throughout his storied career, including continuing operations in Lower Manhattan following the 9/11 terrorist attacks; a major high-rise fire recovery and insurance claim, civil unrest during Occupy Wall Street; and multiple hurricane recovery projects. I am very excited to bring Cliff and his unmatched experience managing the full gamut of commercial property types into the fold as my top property services lieutenant.”
