    ATLANTA, GA, December 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ackerman Retail, the retail division of Ackerman & Co., announced today it has hired Jonathan DiGiovanni as vice president of retail services and Roosevelt Brown as vice president in the firm's medical retail practice.

As a tenant representation specialist for Ackerman Retail, DiGiovanni will advise tenants in site selection, lease transaction and strategic growth initiatives. He joins Ackerman & Co. from Arby's Restaurant Group, where he was a real estate asset manager. His previous commercial real estate and retail experience also includes brokerage and asset management positions at InvesTrust Properties, Perfumania Inc., Princeton Realty Group and The Shopping Center Group.

Brown, who brings extensive medical industry expertise, will focus on investment sales, site selection and transaction services as he helps expand the firm's medical retail market capabilities at a time when medical facilities are increasingly being established next to traditional retail stores. Brown previously marketed products and services in the pharmaceutical industry, most recently as a senior pharmaceutical account manager at Relay Health (a McKesson Company) and executive national sales manager at DataRx.

"I'm very pleased with the direction our retail president, Leo Wiener, is leading the group. Ackerman Retail is steadily winning new assignments and expanding its presence in this quickly evolving sector," said Kris Miller, president of Ackerman & Co.
