“This is an important opportunity for Donahue as he continues to grow as a leader of our family business,” said Don Peebles, Jr., Donahue’s father and Founder of The Peebles Corporation. “This promotion provides the opportunity for Donahue to demonstrate skills beyond the technical mastery of the development process and cross over into the more intangible aspects of real estate development. He is more than qualified for the position and I look forward to watching him take this next step.”
