Florida real estate company Flagler has hired longtime political hand Adam Hollingsworth to head its growing right-of-way division, which recently began offering third-party services to help state and local transportation departments and independent railroad industry clients realize greater value from underutilized real estate holdings, the company announced today.

“Adam is unique in that he has an intimate knowledge of the railroad industry, and also understands the fiscal challenges of states and municipalities throughout the country,” said Flagler President Vincent Signorello.

Hollingsworth previously served as chief of staff for Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton. Before that, he was an executive at CSX Corporation, one of the nation’s leading transportation companies.

Hollingsworth took up his new position Aug.1. — Katherine Clarke
