St. John Properties, Inc. Promotes Vicki Keating to General Manager, Harrisburg Mall
In her new role, Ms. Keating will oversee all asset and property management functions for the one million square foot Harrisburg Mall, including day-to-day operations, maintenance protocols and tenant and community relations, leasing strategy, preparing and overseeing budgets and negotiating and supervising service contracts. She assumes the position previously held by Bill Russell, who was promoted by St. John Properties to Director of Acquisitions this summer. Mr. Russell will continue to be involved with Harrisburg Mall on a supervisory basis.
St. John Properties acquired Harrisburg Mall, located in the Harrisburg East section of Pennsylvania, in 2012. The company immediately initiated a comprehensive renovation and improvement program that centered on physical upgrades, the modernization of the Mall’s security monitoring system and the installation of the exterior signage package. The company has also attracted new tenants including 2nd & Charles, Destination XL and Mondana Kitchen.
“Vicki is a proven and seasoned property manager who has successfully implemented strategies that have increased the value, and improved the operating environment, of our extensive portfolio throughout Anne Arundel and Howard Counties,” explained Lawrence F. Maykrantz, President of St. John Properties. “This promotion reflects our great confidence in Vicki’s management and leadership abilities to assume this important responsibility, and to continue the momentum we have generated in the renaissance of Harrisburg Mall.”
Ms. Keating has more than twenty-five years of business experience and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the former Towson State University. She resides in Street, Maryland.
