Zach Patten, Project Manager at The McDevitt Company, share the company’s history:
The McDevitt Company was founded in 1997 by Wade McDevitt with the goal of becoming one of the finest, full-service retail real estate firms in the world. With offices in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, Westport, London, and Amsterdam, our experienced and highly creative team has a deep understanding of the most compelling retail environments throughout the world, as well as a breadth of industry knowledge and relationships.
What’s it like to work with The McDevitt Company?
Zach: It’s a lot of fun to work at The McDevitt Company. We maintain a pretty relaxed environment but everyone here is extremely motivated and focused on pushing each leasing project forward. We work closely with a wide clientele that includes the URBN brands (Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People, Terrain, BHLDN), which are conveniently headquartered right next to our office at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The restored buildings are beautiful, the people are friendly, and it’s a lot of fun to see each deal through to completion.
Are there any fun facts about The McDevitt Company?
Zach: Two massive decommissioned aircraft carriers are tied up right outside our office! There are plenty of interesting things to see down at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, along with the rest of our offices across the globe.
