Lost International is one of the only private surf and skate industry apparel and board manufacturer. The company has grown from a small warehouse in San Clemente to a large warehouse in Irvine. During that period of time Lost International has shifted its business from manufacturing to licensing to distribution and back again.
Lost International hired Justin Smith to help them with this transition which included the disposition of their corporate office building. This corporate office building was one of the newer nicer developments within the Irvine Spectrum market and was built with high end creative office improvements. The challenge was the rapidly deteriorating office market. Justin was able to put a lease in place during the process in order to provide income during the marketing period. We were able to focus on non-traditional office users and secure a buyer in a high end jewelry designers Orange County headquarters.
What we learned in this process is that Justin is accountable, responsible and he works hard until the job is done. We appreciate his efforts and look forward to working together on the next assignment.
