IA Interior Architects Recognizes Eric Leland and Eric Blohm, Managing Principals in Mohr Partners’ Seattle Office, as Partners of the Year
June 2nd, 2015 | Press Releases
Mohr Partners, a global corporate real estate advisor, announces that IA Interior Architects has recognized Eric Leland and Eric Blohm, Managing Principals in Mohr Partners’ Seattle office, with the IA Interior Architects Industry Partner Award 2015.
The IA Industry Partner Award, now in its seventh year, is awarded to recipients as a way to formally acknowledge the individuals who contribute to the success of IA through their commitment to excellence and for their support and contribution to IA Interior Architects. An official ceremony was held on May 13 at IA’s downtown Seattle office to recognize all award recipients.
“Starting with introductions to key clients in Seattle, Portland, Boise, Dallas, Raleigh and Boston, Mohr Partners has demonstrated that their interpretation of ‘partnership’ means more than adding IA to an RFP list,” said Jeffrey Miller, AIA, IIDA, NCARB, Pacific Northwest Regional Managing Principal of Interior Architects. “As our representative in our Seattle lease transaction, they went out of their way to secure an above standard TI allowance, lease rates that are significantly under market, and concessions that provide flexibility throughout our lease term. We very much appreciate our collaboration with the Mohr team and in particular Eric Blohm and Eric Leland.”
Messrs. Leland and Blohm co-founded Mohr’s Seattle office in 2011, bringing over 40 years of combined industry experience. Under their management, the office has grown substantially in the last four years, leading to the appointment of an office manager in addition to multiple associates and support personnel. They were jointly recognized by Mohr Partners as 2012 “Partners of the Year” and promoted to Managing Principals in 2013.
Mr. Leland is a 30 year veteran of the commercial real estate industry with extensive experience in the areas of acquisition-disposition assignments, ground-up development, strategic planning, construction management and financial analysis. During his career, he has led the new development of hundreds of commercial real estate projects, acquired or disposed of over $450 million in assets and leased over 2.5 million square feet of commercial space.
Mr. Blohm is a 15 year veteran of the commercial real estate industry with extensive experience in technical facilities consulting, financial and market analysis, acquisition due diligence, supervision of tenant improvement projects and lease negotiations. Prior to co-founding the Seattle office of Mohr Partners, he was a senior member and top producer at Flinn Ferguson Corporate Real Estate and was the Director of Technology Real Estate at Sabey Corporation, a private real estate development company based in Seattle.
“We are very honored to receive this award from IA,” said Mr. Leland. “I would like to thank Jeff Miller personally for his group’s affiliation with our office and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
“We are still basking in the afterglow of our IA industry partner award,” said Mr. Blohm. “It is a partnership in the true sense of the word. We are thankful for our strategic alliance with IA and believe it is a beneficial relationship to both sides.”
