Adam Ifshin, president and CEO of DLC Management, discusses how the firm actually net added people to the firm during the downturn. It hired people in financing, marketing, leasing and development and tapped both pros with experience and new college graduates who, in the past, may not have considered real estate. The firm also looked to right-size its portfolio and sold assets opportunistically. As a result, the company sits in a strong position as the retail real estate sector continues its revival.
