Norfolk, Va. (May 15, 2023) – Harvey Lindsay Commercial Real Estate (HLCRE) announces the following changes in the executive management team.
President of HLCRE, Robert M. King, will take on the additional role of Chairman of the Board of Directors. The position of Chairman had been held by Harvey Lindsay, Jr., who passed away on April 19, 2023. “Harvey Lindsay, Jr. was a commercial real estate leader in the Hampton Roads region,” said Robert King, one of Lindsay’s sons. “His legacy lives on through our company, and I’m very honored and humbled to follow in his footsteps.”
Since Bob became president of HLCRE in December 2019, he has guided the strategic direction for the firm. Bob has over 40 years’ experience in commercial real estate and has been at HLCRE since 1978.
Robert R. Beasley, Jr. was named Executive Vice President for Brokerage Services. In that capacity, he will lead the company’s sales and leasing team. Bobby succeeds Craig Cope, who is leaving HLCRE on June 30 to pursue other interests. “We thank Craig Cope for his contributions to the company and we wish him well in his new endeavors,” said Robert Beasley, Jr. “Bob and I are very excited about our new leadership roles at HLCRE and we are dedicated to honoring the memory of Harvey by continuing to grow the company based on the integrity and values he instilled in us.”
Previously the Senior Vice President for industrial leasing and sales, Bobby has been with HLCRE for over 36 years. In his new role, Bobby will oversee all income producing divisions including sales and leasing, property management, asset management and development, as well as new business initiatives.
The passing of Harvey Lindsay, Jr. was a tremendous loss not only for the company, but for the entire region. While he could never be replaced, part of Harvey’s legacy is the team that he trained and inspired over the years to carry HLCRE into the future.
