Hi, I'm Scott Tucker, Vice President of Leasing for the Chicago Region at Kimco. I've been working in the shopping center industry for over 30 years, the last 10 of which I've spent at Kimco. I oversee our portfolio of some 70 properties in Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, and Michigan. My family has also been involved in this business, so shopping centers are in my blood. I went to work for the company started by my uncle and father, "The Tucker Companies," a couple years after earning my economics degree from Illinois State University. Later on I worked for the company's successors, Bradley Real Estate and Heritage Realty, before moving over to Kimco. I'm a licensed real estate broker in Illinois. I live in Northbrook, Ill., with my wife, Debbie; sons, Justin and Brandon; and daughter, Melissa. I enjoy playing and coaching sports as well as attending sporting events around Chicagoland and the rest of the country.
