Brian Franklin joined PMF Investments in 2009 and now serves as the company’s president. He specializes in large-scale project management, marketing and operations.
Carrying on the legacy created by his father, Nat Franklin, Brian’s focus is on expanding PMF’s portfolio of retail and mixed use properties as well as the company’s geographic footprint. He prides himself on a commitment to structuring deals that benefit all parties involved. This means thinking creatively, balancing recognized national brands and unique local businesses as tenants, and always taking a team-oriented approach with each project partner.
Brian has led some of the firm’s highest profile redevelopment projects, including Bellevue’s Kelsey Creek Shopping Center, which is anchored by Washington state’s first Walmart Neighborhood Market. He has played central roles in revitalizing undervalued properties and creating new community gathering places that contribute vibrancy and economic activity to cities and neighborhoods.
Brian is a graduate of the University of Arizona where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree. He is also a member of the Board of Directors for both the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce and the Bellevue Boys and Girls Club.
