Jason Macklin has joined Wingspan Development Group as Director of Development. Macklin comes to Wingspan from Inland National Development Corporation where he was instrumental in developing a platform and pipeline for multi-family and mixed use development projects in multiple U.S. markets. “We’re very excited to have Jason join us,” said Chris Coleman, VP of Development at Wingspan. “He has an excellent track record and reputation. He’ll be a key addition to our team as we grow to the next level.”
Macklin will rely on his skills and relationships to source, negotiate, finance and oversee the full cycle of the development process for new Wingspan projects. Prior to his role at Inland, Macklin worked for Armstrong Development, managing the acquisition and development for new CVS stores in multiple markets throughout the southwestern U.S. “Jason will be successful at Wingspan because he’s very sharp and a great fit for our culture,” added Coleman.
Mr. Macklin is a licensed Illinois Real Estate Managing Broker and a member of ULI, NMHC and a graduate of Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Macklin says he’s looking forward to being a critical part in expanding Wingspan’s footprint. “Wingspan is a first-class organization that I’m thrilled to be a part of.”, said Macklin. When it comes to where he sees Wingspan in five years, Macklin has a pretty well developed vision. “In five years, I see Wingspan being a household name in the real estate development industry. Not necessarily the largest development group, but a company that defines industry best practices. We want to do repeat business with our lenders and partners because of how well we have executed and performed.”
Nick Papanicholas, Jr., one of Wingspan’s principals, said, “Wingspan already has several hundred million dollars of projects under construction or in the pipeline. Bringing Jason on-board will make us that much better.”
