Changes to Cullinan Properties' Leadership Team Help Forge a Path for Growth




(Peoria, IL – September 28, 2021) – Cullinan Properties Ltd. is pleased to announce changes to its leadership team that will help usher in a new era of growth throughout its multiple asset classes across the U.S.  Kathleen Cullinan Brill has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Business Development and Investor Relations, and A. Michael “A.T.” Toroyan has joined Cullinan as Vice President and new Director of Real Estate. 


Kathleen Cullinan Brill has successfully completed over 1,000,000 square feet of transactions with Cullinan Properties.  In her new role, Brill will be leading business development to further expand its medical portfolio, while retaining and growing key corporate and anchor relationships, as well as managing investor relations with Cullinan Properties Founder and Chairman, Diane Cullinan Oberhelman.  Brill will remain based in Cullinan’s Chicago office.


“Kathleen has cultivated an excellent network throughout her 15 years with Cullinan Properties, and this new role will allow the company to grow these valuable relationships to help us expand even further into additional markets and asset classes,” said Christopher M. West, Partner and CEO for Cullinan Properties, Ltd.


A.T. Toroyan brings more than 30 years of commercial real estate experience, along with an extensive analytical and legal background, to the Cullinan team. Toroyan, who is based in Cullinan Properties’ Chicago office, is leading the leasing and sales-related functions of Cullinan's multi-asset class real estate portfolio, including overseeing the negotiation of all leases, purchase and sale agreements, lease renewals and lease terminations. He works with the Construction, Property Management and Finance Departments throughout the entire process, from LOI through Lease/PSA execution.


“A.T. has a broad background in various aspects of commercial real estate, including leasing, acquisition, design, construction, development and legal in a wide range of asset classes that will strengthen an already solid team,” said West. “In addition, A.T.’s experience in many of the markets that we are already in or targeting will further enhance our growth on a national level.”


In his former capacities, Toroyan focused on strategic analysis and implementation of multi-unit restaurant, retail and service sector real estate for landlords and tenants.  He was active in restaurant site selection and consulting along with office, industrial and multifamily. As a result of his broad background, A.T. incorporated a vertically integrated philosophy allowing him to focus on acquisitions and multi-unit development, re-development, design, construction, and leasing, including workouts and deployment strategies. Throughout his career Toroyan has held both equity and management positions in restaurant, retail and service sectors as both a franchisee and a franchisor.


Toroyan earned his B.A. in Business Degree from Michigan State University and holds a Juris Doctorate in Law from University of Detroit.
