Vice President, Construction
In 1993, Joe joined Kimco Realty as Vice President of Construction. At the time, Kimco owned approximately 120 shopping centers and Joe supervised a team of just two construction associates. His team was responsible for all construction in Kimco's shopping centers across the country. Over the years, as Kimco has grown, Joe became responsible for a regional team of three Directors of Construction, and two Construction Assistants. He is responsible for site evaluations, preparation of proformas on all projects. With his team, Joe is responsible for guiding consultants throughout the design and entitlement/permitting process, negotiating lease driven landlord obligations, cost and schedule monitoring, construction completion and finally, project turnover.
The combined Southeast, Florida and Puerto Rico sub regions are comprised of 137 existing shopping centers and over 22 million square feet. Project types include major redevelopments, shopping center renovations, and lease landlord work. Joe has completed well over $500 million of construction work with Kimco in his 21 year tenure at Kimco Realty.
In 1983 Joe worked at Konover Construction Inc., a subsidiary of privately held Konover Development Corporation (KDC) of West Hartford, CT. After starting as a superintendent on Konover's self-developed shopping centers, hotels and office buildings, he completed the three largest projects KDC had ever constructed at that time. By 1988 Joe was promoted through the positions of Project Manager, Vice President of Construction, and ultimately, President of Konover Construction.
Joe Denis graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1973 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Civil Engineering.
