Michael Glazier Relocates to Denver to Fill Strategic Leadership Role
CHICAGO – September 17, 2021 – Chicago-based Golub & Company has announced the expansion of its Western Region office with a strategic relocation, new hires, and role expansions. Golub is currently in the pre-development stage of three high-profile Denver, CO-based projects including the thirteen-acre Denargo Market site along the South Platte River, the 2.5-acre former Greyhound terminal site at 1055 19th Street and a two-acre site at 3800 Blake Street. These three projects could equate to more than four million SF of office, residential and mixed-use development over the next ten to fifteen years.
Michael Glazier, a 20-year Golub veteran, is relocating from Chicago to Denver to serve as Senior Vice President, Western Region. In his new role, Michael will oversee the execution of Golub’s current and future Western Region development deals and acquisitions. Michael’s experience with Golub & Company includes spending several years in Central Europe in the 1990s when Golub was establishing its presence in Poland. Most recently, Michael has been working as a senior member of the Chicago Development and Acquisition team.
Laura Newman will become Director of Investment and Development and lead the execution of all Denargo Market deals while also continuing with her previous responsibilities of supporting the acquisition team — led by David Smith, Vice President of Western Region Acquisitions— on new Western Region business pursuits. Laura relocated from Chicago to Denver in 2018 to establish the firm’s office there.
“David Smith and Laura Newman have been the driving force behind our acquisitions efforts, generating a $1.5B development pipeline in the Denver market alone,” said Michael Newman, President and CEO of Golub & Company. “As they continue to expand our footprint across the front range and other western cities, we are excited that Michael Glazier enthusiastically accepted the challenge to relocate to Denver and we are confident that he will bring his impressive depth of experience to competently lead the execution of our current projects and future pipeline throughout the Western Region.”
Since June, four other key roles have been added to Golub’s Denver office:
Martin Willie Development Manager for Office
Oswaldo Lopez Development Manager for Residential
Wade Davidson Project Manager
Malorie Torrey Financial Analyst
“It’s exciting to watch the rapid growth we are experiencing in the Western Region,” said Glazier. “We are proud to play a significant role in the evolution of downtown Denver and its surrounding neighborhoods. In particular, the Denargo Market project is going to positively impact the RiNo Arts District that has been evolving steadily over the past 20 years,” he added. “The team we now have in place— along with future planned project management roles— will ensure that we deliver beautiful developments that bind communities together for decades to come.”
