Richard Kendall is general manager of the Pacific Northwest offices of Allison+Partners, a global branding and PR agency that focuses on serving clients in the real estate industry. For the past 20 years, Richard has worked with real estate companies throughout the country on a wide range of campaigns — helping residential developers to brand and position their projects within the community and supporting commercial developers in their entitlement, permitting and leasing phases. Often times, this requires identifying and collaborating with neighborhood stakeholders.
Kendall approaches every project with a strategic, non-prescriptive communications eye, tailoring community and industry outreach based on the business and project needs of the client. He has represented developers, owners, retailers, builders, architects and investors on projects along the West Coast and throughout the U.S. Product expertise ranges from high-rise multi-family buildings and midrise apartment complexes to mixed-use urban villages and master-planned communities.
Client experience includes: Coldwell Banker, Walmart, Intracorp Companies, Prudential California Realty, Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Touchstone Corp., Cushman & Wakefield, UBS, Healthcare Realty, Prudential Real Estate Investors, Beacon Capital Partners, Harbor Properties, Polygon Homes, Urban Partners LLC, Jones Lang LaSalle, CBRE, Schnitzer NW, and Vulcan Inc., among many others.
Kendall earned his BA in Economics from Wake Forest University and has a professional certificate in public relations from the University of Washington. He lives in Seattle’s Phinney Ridge neighborhood with his wife and two children.
