Haig has served in his current role at Brixmor Property Group since 2015. Prior to that, he was Senior Vice President, Construction for the company. He joined New Plan Excel Realty Trust, Inc., a predecessor of Brixmor, in 2002 as Project Manager and held several positions, including Senior Development Director and Vice President, Construction.

“We have an aspirational mindset. We always look to do better, and have a commitment to making that happen.” Haig believes success hinges on the local team. “It starts with the leasing agent and property manager, what they focus on - the tenants, the look, and the sense of place that where the local community can feel it is their own. When it all comes together, it becomes a signature property, Proudly Owned by Brixmor.”

Haig also oversees the company's efforts towards developing and maintaining a sustainable business enterprise through focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations. "True Corporate Responsibility means ensuring every aspect of the business operates consistent with our vision and mission."

Haig is a licensed professional engineer and a member of Urban Land Institute (ULI) and ICSC where he serves on the planning committee for the Centerbuild Conference.  Haig lives outside New York City with his wife and three children.
