Jon Wheeler, chairman and CEO of Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust Inc. (NASDAQ: WHLR), joined REIT.com for a CEO Spotlight video interview during REITWeek 2015: NAREIT’s Investor Forum, held in New York.
Wheeler said he expects the company’s pace of acquisitions to pick up in the second half of 2015. He noted that the firm raised investment capital in the first half of the year. Usually, the firm purchases between eight and 10 shopping centers per year. This year, the company could buy as many as 20, according to Wheeler.
