Cummings Properties has announced the appointment of Eric S. Anderson to the position of executive vice president. Anderson, a 13-year veteran of the Woburn-based commercial real estate firm, is only the third person in the Company’s 43-year history to hold the post.
A 1998 graduate of Colby College, Anderson spent a short time with a Wall Street financial firm and served in the United States Marine Corps, before joining Cummings Properties in 1999. He started as an associate property manager at Cummings Center, the firm’s 2-million-square-foot campus in Beverly, before transferring to the Woburn headquarters.
During his early years with the Company, Anderson continued his military service as a Marine reservist. He was called to active duty twice, reporting first to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and then to Iraq.
Over time, Anderson has served in a variety of positions of increasing responsibility within Cummings Properties’ Operations and Leasing Departments. Currently, he is the senior manager overseeing the Company’s acquisition of new clients, as well its relationships with existing clients.
In addition to his many contributions to Cummings Properties, Anderson performs in a leadership or advisory capacity at some of the firm’s affiliated entities. He serves as vice president and treasurer of New Horizons at Marlborough retirement community, as an overseer of Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, and as president of Woburn’s Beacon Grille restaurant.
Dennis Clarke, president and CEO of Cummings Properties, said, “Eric’s notable career advancement is a reflection of his strong capabilities as a business executive. It is also, however, the result of his incredibly hard work and extraordinary dedication in acquiring considerable business knowledge and skills, and then applying them for the benefit of the organization.”
Cummings Properties is a full-service development, property management, and construction firm with more than 10 million square feet of commercial real estate in 10 eastern Massachusetts communities. Among its most well known properties are the landmark TradeCenter 128 business park on I-95/Route 128 in Woburn and the massive Cummings Center campus in Beverly.
