After earning his Bachelor of Arts degree and lettering in basketball for four years at Davidson College, Kevin Doherty and his wife, Sherry, (also a Davidson grad) decided to make their home in Charlotte. Kevin started his commercial real estate career in Charlotte in 1983 when he joined the Kuester Companies as a Leasing Agent for the Law Building on East Trade Street. In 1984, he was offered a Leasing Manager position with the Koger Center, a 750,000 square foot, 10-building, mid-rise suburban office park and, in 1990 was named Center Manager for the office park.
In 1994, Kevin joined Crescent Resources, Duke Power’s former real estate subsidiary, overseeing its 1 million square foot commercial real estate portfolio that included Retail Shopping Centers, The Coliseum Centre and three Infrastructure Parks . Within six years, the commercial development division at Crescent Resources had added over 4 million square feet of office, retail and distribution properties to the commercial portfolio. Over the next three years, the portfolio was sold to J.P. Morgan’s Asset Management Division, while Crescent Resources asset management group retained the leasing management and future development responsibilities in four different business parks (Crosspoint Industrial Park, Lakemont Business Park, Lakemont Industrial Park and Air Park West), where Kevin was President of the POAs. By 2003, Crescent Resources had become the largest real estate development company in North and South Carolina.
During his 19-year career with Crescent Resources (now Crescent Communities) commercial division, Kevin focused on corporate commercial leasing and sales, as well as development and property management of office, retail and distribution projects in North and South Carolina.
