The Liberty Group Begins Major Expansion with New Hire
James Wiersma Hired as Vice President of Business Development
Houston, Texas (May 29, 2014) – The Liberty Group is pleased to announce James Wiersma as the company’s new Vice President of Business Development. James joins The Liberty Group with 14 years of business development experience and five years of multifamily real estate experience.
As Vice President of Business Development, James is tasked with expanding The Liberty Group’s national footprint, recruiting the best local talent in each new market, and building new client relationships. In his first month on the job he has already overseen the formation of The Liberty Group’s new Washington, D.C., office located in McLean, Virginia.
“We are excited to welcome James to the team,” said Kenneth J. Bohan, The Liberty Group’s Founder and President. “With his breadth of business development experience for major national brands, we look forward to tripling or quadrupling the company’s footprint over the next two years.”
Prior to joining The Liberty Group, James held multiple executive positions with RentPath (previously known as Primedia), where he was a leader in sales training, management development, product development, and creating marketing/sales training collateral. James also had a successful stint as Media Supervisor for Home Depot.
James holds a BSBA degree in Marketing from the University of West Florida. Outside of work hours, he golfs and spends time with his young son. Although James is a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, The Liberty Group does not hold that against him.
