About Our Speaker : Kris Miller

Atlanta’s Real Estate Market: What’s In It for You?
Kris Miller, Ackerman & Co.

As President of Ackerman & Co., Kris directs all investment, management and leasing activities of the firm. Since joining Ackerman in 1997, Mr. Miller has positioned the company as one of the leading full-service commercial real estate firms in the southeast.

Under his leadership, Ackerman has quadrupled the square footage under management and is now one of the largest landlords in metro Atlanta. Gross commission volume has increased sevenfold. And more than $1 billion in house and client equity has been invested in a number of successful real estate ventures.

Ackerman’s investment focus covers a variety of disciplines. Ackerman Medical has developed over 1 million square feet of Class “A” medical space over the last five years in a unique joint venture structure with physician and other Atlanta-based healthcare systems.

Multiple investments in Atlanta area office, industrial, and retail projects have been made with a variety of institutional and individual partners. Ackerman was also a prolific and successful land speculator over the last cycle, primarily with house capital. While this activity has been quiet in 2008 and 2009, it will return again as Atlanta shifts back to growth.


 Prior to joining Ackerman & Co., Mr. Miller was a Vice President at Citicorp, where he managed Citicorp’s Atlanta Real Estate Office and negotiated, structured, and closed over one hundred major transactions that included investments and joint ventures in multi-family, office, industrial, retail, and mixed-use properties and both public and private debt capitalization deals.
