HIGH POINT, N.C.–Tom Loney, executive vice president of leasing for International Market Centers, is retiring after 28 years.
Richard Krapfel has been named director of leasing and Susan Beck has been named leasing manager. Both will be based in High Point and report to Julie Messner, vice president of business development – High Point.
Loney began his career at the IHFC in 1984 as the director of marketing; in 1990 he was promoted to director of leasing for furnishings, and in 2002 to the vice president of leasing. In 2005 he was named the executive vice president of leasing. “I want to offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you to all of the wonderful people that I had the privilege of working with the past 28 years. Teammates who worked so hard to create an environment that supported personal and professional successes. As we liked to say, together there is no ‘I’ in team. We succeeded or failed together and most were successes,” said Loney.
Krapfel will handle permanent leasing functions for IMC’s portfolio of properties including prospect development, key tenant and prospect account management, and new and renewal leasing activity. He brings extensive knowledge of the home furnishings industry, as well as many years of sales management experience with companies such as Valdese Weavers, Dicey and Basofil Fibers, according to a statement from IMC.
As a new leasing manager, Beck will focus her expertise on temporary leasing in the Suites at Market Square. Beck comes to IMC with over 20 years of sales and account management experience in the home furnishings and interior design industries, IMC said.
