Grand Boulevard at Sandestin® is happy to announce Andrew “Andy” Peach as the new General Manager of the popular Town Center. Peach will assume oversight of all operations at the 52-acre property. He is a senior retail real estate professional experienced in managing and leasing upscale shopping centers, including mixed-use assets. He has been with retail centers in South Florida, Highland Park, TX and South Carolina. He was Senior General Manager for the Shops at Merrick Park, Coral Gables, Florida – a luxury asset anchored by Nieman Marcus with high-end retail, dining/entertainment, fitness, office, and residences.
“I strive for operational excellence with a heavy emphasis on tenant relations and elevated customer experience,” said Peach. “I fell in love with Grand Boulevard and see the potential to elevate this amazing property even more.”
A dynamic beach lifestyle and a dose of Southern hospitality helped to solidify Peach’s decision to move to Walton County, one of the most affluent counties in the state of Florida, and part of the South Walton beach communities, known as the “Hamptons of the South.”
“I’m so impressed with the people at Grand Boulevard and the surrounding community. The people are so nice and there is an endless number of things to do in this area,” said Peach, who noted his love of the beach and deep-sea fishing.
He arrives after the successful 16-year tenure of Bill Bubel as Grand Boulevard’s original General Manager. Bubel moves into the full-time role of Vice-President of Operations for Howard Group, the developer and co-owner of Grand Boulevard.
Peach has a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas State University and holds numerous industry designations. He and his fiancé, Kelly, have relocated to Santa Rosa Beach. His office is located in the Grand Boulevard Management Office, 585 Grand Boulevard, Suite 205.
