United Properties promotes Champeau to commercial market leader in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (Jan. 21, 2020) – United Properties announced today that Brandon Champeau has been promoted to market leader for the Minneapolis commercial development group. The promotion was effective Jan. 1, 2020.

In his new role, Champeau is responsible for directing and managing the execution of all office, industrial and commercial mixed-use projects in the Twin Cities market. Champeau joined United Properties in 2004 as a retail leasing broker. He was hired by Keith Ulstad as a retail project manager in 2006 and was promoted to assistant vice president in 2012, vice president in 2014 and senior vice president in 2017. He has been instrumental in many key United Properties projects, including the historic renovation of the Ford Center, the Penn & American redevelopment in Bloomington, Midway Stadium Business Center — the first USGBC LEED Silver speculative industrial building in the state — and Northcross Business Park, a highly successful industrial development in Brooklyn Park. In the last five years, he has delivered more than 2.5 million sq. ft. of industrial space to the market, and since 2016, he has been leading the master planning of Upper Harbor Terminal.

“Brandon has continued his own growth and success by demonstrating repeated, disciplined work across all commercial property types,” said Bill Katter, president and chief investment officer, United Properties Development. “I am confident he will continue to have a meaningful impact in this expanded role and am very excited to see his efforts expand into our office development efforts.”

In addition to his role at United Properties, Champeau is deeply involved in the commercial real estate industry, most recently serving as the president of NAIOP Minnesota, the local chapter of NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in entrepreneurial studies and finance, with a minor in marketing, from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management.
