BALTIMORE, MDSt. John Properties, Inc., a Baltimore-based commercial real estate development and management company active in 11 states, has selected Bryan Cyphers as the newest professional in its signature four-year Partner in Training Program, designed to fuel its national expansion.

Nine professionals have completed the company’s Partner in Training Program since its inception, and five are presently active in the program.

In addition, Regional Partner Dustin Atkielski opened a new Regional Office in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina late last year.

Upon completion, they will have received expert mentorship from the best and brightest in the commercial real estate industry.”

“Bryan’s background and skills within commercial real estate along with his strong character, values and temperament align perfectly with the responsibilities needed to grow and oversee operations of a regional office,” Doordan added.
