I’m Jenny Westbrook, Senior Director of Specialty Leasing for the Southeast & Florida Regions for Kimco. I handle temporary leasing and ancillary income generation, or AI, as we refer to it, in eight states and Puerto Rico. I started the Southeast and Puerto Rico specialty leasing programs for Kimco and expanded them into our Florida region. I have since developed a team to handle leasing and full-service account management of both short- and long-term ancillary uses for local, regional, and national tenants in categories such as ATM’s, carts & kiosks, billboards, cell towers, temporary and seasonal store leasing, advertising, fireworks, tent sales, textile/book recycling, and community/tenant events in our centers, just to name a few. My team’s efforts contribute directly to Kimco’s NOI and it is always exciting to explore new and creative opportunities to expand our company’s financial growth.
My career began in retail management after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I transitioned into specialty leasing where I was a Specialty Leasing Representative for two enclosed regional malls for Faison, and later worked for The Mills Corporation as both a Specialty Leasing Manager in a 1.4-million-square-foot regional center and as the SE Regional Manager overseeing the specialty leasing programs at one super regional and three regional centers.
I’m proud to be a native North Carolinian and enjoy spending time with my husband on the French Broad River and exploring the western North Carolina mountains. I’m an avid decorator and self-proclaimed “flea market junkie,” so I love to find vintage items to repurpose and transform.
