Top lawyer joins RPAI


Retail Properties of America named Paula Maggio to the role of executive VP, general counsel and secretary, effective May 2.

Maggio joins Retail Properties of America following a 16 year career with Strategic Hotels & Resorts where she most recently served as executive VP, general counsel and secretary. Prior to that she practiced law with Altheimer & Gray, where she focused primarily on real estate and hospitality law.

She succeeds Dennis Holland who had previously announced that he would be retiring on June 30, 2016. In connection with Maggio's appointment, Holland will cease to serve as executive VP, general counsel and secretary as of May 2, but will remain employed by the company through his originally planned retirement date to assist in the transition.

"We would like to thank Dennis Holland for his years of loyal service to RPAI shareholders. We are excited that he will be replaced by Paula Maggio, a proven general counsel with a strong track record in our industry," said Steven Grimes, RPAI’s president and CEO. "We look forward to the company's continued growth and believe Paula will be an excellent addition to our leadership team."

Retail Properties of America is one of the largest owners and operators of shopping centers in the U.S., whose 198 retail operating properties encompass nearly 29 million square feet.
