OAK BROOK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InvenTrust Properties Corp. (“InvenTrust” or the “Company”), today announced that Christy L. David, Managing Counsel - Transactions for InvenTrust, has been appointed Vice President, Deputy General Counsel and Secretary. Ms. David’s appointment follows the departure of Scott W. Wilton, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary. All actions were effective immediately.
“Christy has been an integral part of the legal team for InvenTrust,” said Thomas McGuinness, InvenTrust’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Over the past 10-years, Christy has taken on increased responsibility while supporting the changing legal needs of the Company. I am pleased to have her take on this expanded role.”
Throughout her time with InvenTrust, Ms. David has been intimately involved in several large platform transactions and spin-offs, as well as all property-level acquisitions and dispositions. Ms. David also managed the legal matters and established the corporate governance program of InvenTrust’s hotel platform, Xenia Hotel & Resorts, prior to Xenia’s spin-off and listing, and was responsible for reviewing and negotiating the Company’s previous debt and financing agreements. The Company believes these considerations, along with her real estate expertise make Ms. David well-prepared to serve in this new role.
Mr. McGuinness continued, “I want to thank Scott for his service and counsel to InvenTrust over the past 12 years, particularly his guidance during our self-management transactions and our hotel and non-core platform spin-offs, and throughout our various improved corporate governance initiatives.
