Team / Jack Townsend


For over 30 years, Jack has served as an industrial real estate specialist in the sale and leasing of buildings located in the Western suburbs of Detroit.  His track record of successfully meeting the needs of the owners and users that he represents is evident by consistently satisfying the requirements of one of Signature Associates’ Top Sales Designations since 1993.

Prior to his real estate career, Jack served in several Engineering Management positions at Ford Motor Company associated with Powertrain Operations and its Safety Engineering Staff.  While at Ford, he was responsible for the successful launch of the 3.0L engine in Mazda’s Probe vehicles and the advance design of the 2.2L Ford Focus engine.  This assignment, which involved spending time in Japan, England, and Germany, provided insight on worldwide manufacturing and warehousing operations and enhanced his effectiveness in matching real estate opportunities with customer needs.
