Burns Scalo Real Estate Services announced that Pamela Austin, long the face of Chicago-based McCaffery Interests in town, will be the company’s new brand ambassador, a newly created position at the Green Tree firm that’s been working to make inroads into the city’s hot Strip District neighborhood.
A Strip District resident and a member of the board of directors of the Strip District Neighbors community organizations, Austin will now shift her attention from overseeing the development of the Strip District Terminal nearing completion along five blocks of Smallman and 1600 Smallman across the street.
Now, she’ll oversee Burns Scalo’s Vision on Fifteenth redevelopment a block away from the McCaffery projects along Smallman Street.
Jim Scalo, CEO of Burns Scalo, said of Austin in a prepared statement:
“Pamela is a passionate advocate for the advancement of The Strip District. She is the perfect ambassador to represent our brand and to speak about our organization’s role in the prospering sub-market. She is an articulate thought leader who is committed to forging strong strategic relationships and will play a major role in our continued growth.”
Austin said she was “thrilled by the tremendous opportunity.”
