Following a successful 39-year career at Colonial Parking, Inc., former President and CEO Andrew Blair enters the commercial real estate sector as the newly appointed Executive Vice President of Strategic Accounts and Business Development at Donohoe Real Estate Services. The announcement comes on the heels of Blair’s decision to leave his role at the DC Metro parking giant in early 2021 to pursue new opportunities and challenges.

“I had always imagined myself as having a new challenge in my career and am ecstatic that this desire has led me to Donohoe Real Estate Services, a company that I have highly respected for decades,” Blair said. In this new role, he intends to build upon his past experiences and successes by fostering exceptional client relationships and producing new business leads, with the goal of facilitating Donohoe’s continued operational excellence.

“Andrew Blair built an incredible business at Colonial by placing a high value on service. As a result of his leadership, every team member at Colonial, from facility staff to the executive team, embodies this commitment to excellent client and customer service.  Donohoe Real Estate Services is looking forward to partnering with Andrew as we further our client services and continue to expand our business,” said Drew Genova, President of Donohoe Real Estate Services.

A seasoned executive, Blair brings with him a depth of specialized knowledge spanning all aspects of business operations and management, including the development and management of strategic accounts. In his previous role, Blair provided pre-development, financial feasibility, due diligence, and operational improvement consulting to Colonial’s current and prospective clients, growing the company from 150 to 300 locations during his tenure as CEO there.

“I am very proud to welcome Andrew to our company. He represents everything that Donohoe stands for and given his experience, we know we will all grow and benefit from him being here,” said Christopher Bruch, President/CEO of The Donohoe Companies, Inc.
