    Kipp Gillian

    Kipp Gillian, President Gillian Executive Search, Inc. Kipp Gillian is a Mechanical Engineer (University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas) who started his career in real estate development and construction management in 1994 as a project manager for Vratsinas Construction Company, a TOP ENR design build firm with a massive focus in retail construction. He transitioned to the client side under the VCC flag as an Owner's Rep and project manager for Jacoby Development of Atlanta, Georgia. Under these two roles Mr. Gillian built shopping center and office product up and down the Eastern seaboard and the Midwest.

    In 1998 Mr. Gillian moved to Los Angeles to open the West Coast office for VCC and continued to build retail and mixed use product throughout Southern, California. In 2000, Mr. Gillian took his real estate career in a new direction. After receiving calls from numerous recruiters that all knew little about real estate development, construction and/or architecture he felt there was a calling for a true "Agent" for the industry. On that note Mr. Gillian set out to create Gillian Executive Search, Inc. GES has been in business for over 10 years now and is one of the most popular real estate recruiting agencies in the US representing clients across the nation, and at times internationally, such as Hilton Hotels, LNR Property Corporation, Donahue Schriber, Fritz Duda, CIM Group, Weintraub Financial, Clark Realty Capital, Archstone, The Related Companies of California, Camden, Aslan Realty, WET Design, Palm Desert Development Company, Lewis Operating Company, Equity Residential, Carmel Partners, Public Storage, Macerich, DJM Capital, Lyle Parks Junior, Herman & Kittle, Greystar, Commerce Construction, Syufy Enterprises and many more.
