Marc formed The Sierra Group, Inc. and Sierra Realty Advisors in 2000 following a career at General Growth Properties where he was Senior Vice President of Leasing and Asset Management – overseeing 12M square feet of retail space. This platform, and the first-hand knowledge of almost every major project throughout the country, provides Marc with the vision and insight to take an asset such as a piece of land or existing under-performing retail center and transform it into a burgeoning, profitable focal point for its owners.
Marc's talents for design layout and merchandising embrace the unique aspect of each project and help maximize the experience for all who visit it. Using this knowledge, he can carefully balance symbiotic retailers, restaurants, and entertainment venues and transform a quiet center into a busy and profitable one. One of Marc’s most valuable skills is the ability to quarterback a project from a vision through merchandising, planning, and opening.
