Houston–Alan Patton has joined Hines as a senior vice president in the firm’s corporate office at Williams Tower in Houston. Patton’s main focus will be to expand the firm’s multifamily development activity throughout the United States by working with Hines’ domestic regions on their for-rent residential programs.
