Northpoint Continues Dynamic Growth with New Leadership Team
Construction, investment and development management firm diversifies experience base with three senior hires
Bethesda, MD -- Northpoint Realty Partners announces today the appointment of three new hires to its leadership team in Northpoint Services, bringing more than 40 years of collective experience to the firm. This comes on the heels of receiving a marquis assignment at The Glover House in Washington, DC—a mixed use project with a 225-unit apartment building and retail which is a sign of bigger things to come for the cutting-edge construction and development management firm.
"The goal of growing our leadership team is to strengthen our bench by adding expertise that touches all facets of construction—from beginning to end," said Chris Lukawski, Founding Partner of Northpoint Services. "Adding three senior-level leaders allows us to continue to expand throughout the marketplace while remaining a scalable entity—bringing unprecedented opportunities to our clients on both small and large projects."
