Citadel Partners adds project leasing in Fort Worth, hires Cullen Donohue as Market Leader

FORT WORTH, Texas – (Feb. 27, 2024) – Citadel Partners, a corporate real estate advisory firm, expanded its service lines with the addition of project leasing and a new market leader in the Fort Worth office with the hiring of Cullen Donohue.

Donohue will lead the project leasing efforts representing real estate owners across Tarrant County by helping them implement creative marketing strategies and property improvements to attract tenants, drive occupancy and increase the value of their properties. He will also work with his clients throughout the total life cycle of their investments, including identifying new acquisition opportunities, marketing and lease-up of their holdings, and property sales while also providing them with a variety of other asset services.

“Project leasing is a natural addition to our services platform,” said Citadel Partners Market Principal Andy Goldston. “We already handle third-party leasing work, so adding a leader to help us grow the platform will be tremendously beneficial. Tarrant County is a dynamic market and having Cullen’s expertise will help us grow and expand our service lines here.”

“Citadel Partners has a very entrepreneurial energy and vibrant culture that made this move very appealing,” Donohue said. “Being headquartered locally under the stellar leadership of Managing Partners Scott Morse and Scott Jessen was a big factor, as well. It is a growing company with a history of a grassroots approach to helping our partners succeed.”

Donohue said his immediate goal is to grow the Tarrant County team as the portfolio of office properties grows. He will be working with Goldston, Associate Advisor Daniel Mullen, and Anna Lee Moore, who recently joined the Fort Worth office as an Advisor. 

Donohue was named a 2023 Fort Worth Inc. Top Commercial Broker and was a winner of CoStar’s Top Office Leases in DFW in 2022 for Dickies’ headquarters relocation. Donohue represented the landlord in attracting and signing the 85,000-square-foot lease with Dickies to relocate its headquarters to 500 Taylor in Downtown Fort Worth.

The Texas A&M University graduate has more than 10 years of industry experience and has closed more than 1.7 million square feet of office lease and sale transactions, totaling more than $280 million in transaction value. 

“Cullen’s attention to detail, his persistent approach, and his tremendous knowledge of the office market in Tarrant County make him a great asset to the team,” Goldston said.

“It is my goal to understand the nuances of each of my clients’ businesses and long-term goals, so we can work together as partners to find the best solution to drive the most value out of their real estate,” Donohue said.
