Trammell Crow taps Skanska’s Leatherbee to launch Boston office

Trammell Crow Co., a Dallas-based real-estate development company that bills itself as the largest commercial real-estate developer in the U.S., has tapped Charley Leatherbee to launch and grow a Boston office. Leatherbee has spent the past seven years as the local executive for Swedish construction company Skanska, developing close to 2 million square feet of office, life-science and multifamily property, much of it in Boston’s Seaport District. In his role as senior vice president and business unit leader at Trammell Crow, Leatherbee will target all new development and acquisition projects.  “The fundamentals of Boston have never been stronger than they are today,” Leatherbee said in an interview.
