Matt Van Slooten joins United Properties today as co-president and chief investment officer of United Properties Investment LLC (UPI). Van Slooten will replace Eva Stevens, who will work with Van Slooten to ensure a smooth transition before she retires in December.
Most recently, Van Slooten served as president of commercial properties for CSM Corporation. Prior to that, he spent 25 years with Carlson Real Estate Company, advancing to the role of president, a post he held for thirteen years.
As co-president, Van Slooten will share responsibility for United Properties with co-president Bill Katter, who also serves as president and chief investment officer of United Properties Development (UPD), for leading and guiding the combined United Properties organization into the future. As chief investment officer for UPI, Van Slooten will be responsible for all aspects of portfolio and asset management of the company’s stable portfolio which represents more than 7 million sq. ft. across several markets, including Minnesota, Colorado, Wisconsin and Florida.
“Following a thorough national search, we are delighted that Matt will join United Properties in this critically important role,” said Bert Colianni, chief executive officer of Marquette Companies, LLC, a Pohlad holding company that owns UPI. “Matt brings many years of outstanding commercial real estate investment experience to United Properties, and we are confident he has the complementary skills and vision to partner with Bill to chart United Properties’ course into the future.”
“I am delighted to welcome Matt to United Properties and look forward to working closely with him and the entire United Properties team on our many exciting projects in the days, months and years ahead,” said Katter.
