Kipp Gillian
CEO of Gillian Executive Search - Recruiters in Construction Management, Architecture and Real Estate Development

Kipp Gillian, President Gillian Executive Search, Inc. Kipp Gillian is a Mechanical Engineer (University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas) who started his career in real estate development and construction management in 1994 as a project manager for VCC, a TOP ENR design build firm with a massive focus in retail construction. He transitioned to the client side under the VCC flag as an Owner’s Rep and project manager for Jacoby Development of Atlanta, Georgia. Under these two roles Mr. Gillian built shopping center and office product up and down the Eastern seaboard and the Midwest.

 

In 1998 Mr. Gillian moved to Los Angeles to open the West Coast office for VCC and continued to build retail and mixed use product throughout Southern, California. In 2000, Mr. Gillian took his real estate career in a new direction. After receiving calls from numerous recruiters that all knew little about real estate development, construction and/or architecture he felt there was a calling for a true “Agent” for the industry. On that note Mr. Gillian set out to create Gillian Executive Search, Inc. GES has been in business for over almost 20 years now and is one of the most popular real estate recruiting agencies in the US representing clients across the nation. We service Development, Construction, Design and Finance companies focused in development, acquisitions, redevelopment of retail shopping centers, multifamily, affordable housing, mixed-use, commercial office, Industrial, hospitality and much more.
