Jim Terrell, who in 36 years at Sears Holdings presided over divestiture, repurposing, and subleasing of dozens of properties, has joined A&G Realty Partners as managing director.
Terrell will be based in the Chicago office of A&G, one of the leading asset disposition firms handling national retail chains. He is charged with directing the exit process for leased and fee-owned properties, including warehouse and corporate office restructuring, consolidation and disposition.
“Jim is a prolific deal-maker with a very diverse real estate background,” said Andy Graiser, who serves as co-president of A&G with Emilio Amendola.
Exiting Sears as VP and chief operating officer in 2015, Terrell participated in or directed several complex transactions, including the merger creating Sears Holdings Corporation, the spin-off of the Seritage Growth Property REIT. Terrell was part of the M&A team that led to Sears’ acquisitions of Land’s End and other companies.
