Jim Hornecker - Partner

"Businesses must capitalize on their strengths, not simply shore up weaknesses. A disciplined focus on executing the organization's core strategy is key to success for both landlords and tenants."

James R. Hornecker began his real estate career in 2000 at Albertsons in Boise, Idaho doing fuel center development. He transferred to Albertsons’ Jewel-Osco division in Chicago where he worked with Clarion Consulting as a client. After Jewel-Osco was acquired by Supervalu, he was promoted to Minneapolis and furthered his leadership and deal-making responsibilities.

Jim then worked at Coborn’s, a St. Cloud, Minnesota based regional grocer where he led the store development and maintenance departments while focusing on an aggressive expansion program in North Dakota. At Twin Cities-based Oppidan Investment Company, a national property development firm, Jim successfully completed real estate developments from coast-to-coast.

Mr. Hornecker joined Clarion Consulting in 2019 and works closely with retail clients to create and implement strategic and project-specific plans. His analytic approach, clarity, and thoughtful personality enable him to work effectively with retail clients and shopping center Owners on strategy, negotiation, and execution.

Jim holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from Santa Clara University and a Master of Arts degree in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. Jim earned a Six Sigma Black Belt in 2006. He’s an active member of both MSCA and ICSC and is also a frequent speaker and emcee at various industry events.
