Details of William Whitfield

William Whitfield


Boca Raton, Florida, United States
Industry Category: Real Estate Developers- Managers
Relocation Preferences: Open Worldwide
As the owners/developers & bankers lead representative for large Development Projects my experience includes mixed use master planned communities, office, retail, hotel, resorts, malls, mix-use retail facilities, theme attractions, marinas, spas, leisure  & recreation residential communities and mixed use commercial, manufacturing and infrastructure projects.  My experience is equally balanced between pre-development services design, construction management to asset management implementation and Cap-Ex management projects. I have successfully completed projects representing many of the largest corporations & developers in the United States, Canada, South & Central America, and the Caribbean and in other international locations.  This broad experience in project/program management of turnkey projects has produced a set of skills well suited to representing owners/developers & bankers on difficult projects.  As a consummate problem solver I enjoy the demanding role of a fast paced energetic development environment.  The multi-tasking demands of managing multiple sub-projects and team members within a Master Program are an integral part of my management capabilities.   As a dedicated team player, much of my success has been based in an ability to encourage the best performance and brightest answers from a partnered project team.  I have the experience to initiate these projects and keep them moving, on budget, on schedule with a grounded balance of knowing when to step cautiously for risk avoidance and when to forge ahead
