Staubach Retail changes name
Staubach Retail Services announced the firm is rebranding and renaming itself SRS Real Estate Partners. Roger Staubach sold the Staubach Company to Jones Lang LaSalle in June, but Staubach Retail Services remained an independent company, and the name change is to set it apart from Jones Lang LaSalle’s purchase of Staubach. Roger Staubach and Chris Maguire, former CEO of Staubach Retail, will remain on the SRS Real Estate Partners board and will be equity holders in the firm. “We are proud of our heritage and legacy but now is the time to define ourselves as a separate real estate firm,” Clay Smith, president and CEO of SRS Real Estate Partners, said in a statement.
