BOSTON, March 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- STAG Industrial, Inc. (NYSE: STAG) (the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors had appointed Steven T. Kimball as Executive Vice President—Real Estate Operations, effective when Mr. Kimball joins the Company this spring.

Mr. Kimball will lead the Company's asset management and construction departments. He will concentrate his efforts on maximizing returns from the Company's existing assets and guide its development program.

"We look forward to Steve Kimball joining STAG and maintaining our focus on same store performance and portfolio operations," said Bill Crooker, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Steve will be a great addition to senior management and will help us unlock further value from our properties."

The Company also announced that Mr. Butcher's employment agreement would expire at the end of its current one-year term on June 30, 2023, when he will retire as Executive Chairman of the Board. Mr. Butcher will continue to serve on the Board as a director.

Effective July 1, 2023, the Company appointed Larry T. Guillemette as independent Chairman of the Board. Mr. Guillemette currently serves as Lead Independent Director of the Board.

"Our multi-year management succession plan, which included the retirement of Steve Mecke, our Chief Operating Officer, at the end of 2022, will conclude with Mr. Kimball's assumption of Mr. Mecke's former responsibility for asset management and Ben's full retirement from management this summer. Ben will of course remain a valued resource as a director, for which I am grateful," said Bill Crooker. "I would like to thank Steve Mecke for his dedicated service to the Company and its predecessor. STAG's success, including achievement of the succession plan, depended on the many contributions of Mr. Mecke."
