Trademark Property Co. Names SVP of Property Operations

Fort Worth-based Trademark said Jamie Cox prefers a “hands-on” approach to his work and rarely takes meetings in an office. “At 6-foot-6 with a big smile and infectious personality, Jamie is impossible to overlook and hard to forget,” says the company's founder and CEO.

Jamie Cox has joined Fort Worth-based Trademark Property Co. as senior vice president of property operations.

“We’re thrilled to have this talented leader join our operations team, executing the highest quality of experiences for our tenants, customers, clients and partners,” Trademark President and COO Kevin Kessinger said in a statement. “Jamie is a natural extension of Trademark’s community-centric principles, and we know he will bring immense value to our business.”

Cox’s journey has meant overcoming adversity.

Trademark said Cox got a new lease on life after his heart stopped in college. He overcame open heart surgery and awoke from a coma determined to build a meaningful life and career in commercial real estate, Trademark said. He has nearly 15 years of diversified real estate experience at respected companies such as Caruso, Taubman, Westfield, and OliverMcMillan.

The company said Cox will apply lessons learned from past experiences, both professional and personal, and will utilize a pragmatic, goal-oriented approach in his new role. It said he is passionate about identifying the strengths, goals, and opportunities of his team members and properties.

Trademark said Cox prefers a “hands-on” approach to his work and rarely takes meetings in an office.

He plans to spend substantial time “on the ground” at Trademark’s 17 properties, building relationships with management, operating and marketing teams face-to-face while getting a first-hand feel of each destination’s unique environment and the larger community it serves.

‘Running to deliver at the highest possible level’

Trademark said that growing up with humble beginnings on his family’s farm, Cox’s interest in real estate began with an appreciation for land and the different ways it can be utilized and developed.

Cox has worked at some of the best-known retail and mixed-use properties in the country, including The Mall at Short Hills, where he managed 160-plus tenants and 1.4-million square feet for Taubman.

Cox also was VP of operations for Caruso, overseeing best-in-class properties such as The Grove, The Americana at Brand and Palisades Village. Before those roles, Cox worked for Westfield in mall management and OliverMcMillan, where he managed the prestigious River Oaks District in Houston.

“I’ve spent my whole life pursuing excellence for the sake of excellence, because that’s what I expect from myself and my teams,” Cox said in a statement. “I wake up every day grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact on people and places. Each property and ownership team requires an individualized approach. I find great satisfaction in understanding the unique needs and goals of an asset, and then running to deliver at the highest possible level while celebrating wins along the way. It brings great joy and purpose to my life.”

Cox is a lecturer at NYU and Yale University, where he received his MBA. He also has a passion and understanding of solar power and sustainable energy, and Trademark said he knows how to leverage new technologies to benefit the community, the environment and the bottom line, synonymous with Trademark’s sustainability strategy.

“At 6-foot-6 with a big smile and infectious personality, Jamie is impossible to overlook and hard to forget,” Trademark founder and CEO Terry Montesi said.

Trademark’s mixed-use, retail and institutional services portfolio includes Galleria Dallas, Lincoln Square, Left Bank, WestBend, Waterside, 5000 S Hulen and Alliance Town Center in Dallas-Fort Worth; Market Street – The Woodlands in The Woodlands (Houston); Great Hills Market & Station in Austin; La Palmera Mall in Corpus Christi; Zona Rosa in Kansas City, Missouri; Saddle Creek in Germantown (Memphis); Annapolis Town Center in Annapolis, Maryland; North Point in Alpharetta (Atlanta); First Street Napa (California); Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens (Florida); and Perkins Rowe in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
