SunCap Property Group is pleased to announce the opening of an office in Charleston, South Carolina. This new location will oversee office, industrial and retail developments across the Lowcountry and Southeast region.
Derek J. Mathis has been hired as a senior vice president and will lead efforts. Prior to joining SunCap, Derek was Director of Industrial Development for WestRock Land & Development where he was responsible for managing the company's industrial real estate efforts. While at WestRock, he was involved in the vertical development of 833,000 square feet of Class A industrial space and facilitated land transactions totaling more than $85 million. He was also directly involved in a number of economic development projects including Volvo Cars US, Thorne Research, NUPI Americas and Sundaram Clayton.
"I am excited to begin this next chapter with SunCap Property Group. My history in this region combined with SunCap's expertise in commercial development makes us a natural fit to join forces," said Mathis. "I look forward to leveraging SunCap's track record of successful build to suit delivery for Fortune 500 companies and continuing to bring expanding and emerging companies to our market."
Derek is a member of numerous professional associations, is a past president and current board member at the Dee Norton Lowcountry Children's Center and serves on the Berkeley Chamber Board of Directors.

"Derek's passion for bettering his community and his impressive track record of bringing high-caliber companies to the Lowcountry perfectly complements SunCap's on-going commitment to South Carolina, particularly the Charleston and Greenville-Spartanburg markets," said SunCap CEO and Founding Partner, Flint McNaughton.
