DMA co-founder, principal and industry leader Martha Spatz has a new project for the New Year: retirement. We announce this news at DMA with great pride in Martha’s career as an industry leader in retail tenant delivery, with gratitude for all that she has accomplished for DMA and its clients, and with the knowledge that her legacy of expertise will continue within the DMA team.
Martha has been a mentor to many professionals within and outside DMA over her 40-year career. She has helped building owners and tenants launch and sustain successful commercial properties across the U.S. and beyond. Most recently, she oversaw DMA teams on the large-scale mixed-use developments of Assembly Row, outside Boston, and Pike & Rose, in the Washington metro area. Earlier in her career, Martha contributed to the retail success of high-profile places around the nation such as 900 North Michigan, in Chicago, and The Streets at Southpoint, in Durham, North Carolina. Martha has also lent her experience and leadership to industry associations and events, including the International Council of Shopping Centers and its CenterBuild Conference. DMA will continue to benefit from her deep experience with Martha serving as a Senior Advisor for as long as she likes.
No doubt Martha will take on retirement with the same energy she has brought to her many colleagues, clients and projects. We’re confident she’ll outperform all expectations, and we look forward to staying in touch.
