LAMCO L.L.C., a subsidiary of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., has named Voit Real Estate Services project manager and property manager of a 12-asset industrial, office/flex portfolio across five western states: California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington. The portfolio comprises 450,000 square feet and is valued at $100 million.

Voit Asset Services executive managing director John Strockis said that the firm was retained based on its expertise as a real estate operator: specifically, developing, owning and managing comparable projects. He added that Voit plans to engage in an orchestrated disposition strategy to reposition the properties and reintroduce them into the marketplace.
