Four years after leaving Moore Company Realty to work as a project manager at a local firm, Jay Tidwell has returned to Moore as an associate broker. Tidwell, who rejoined the Moore firm August 1, said his primary responsibility will be in the company’s project management division. He maintained relationships with some of his previous Moore clients even when Tidwell worked at Hodges Commercial Real Estate, Warehouse + Logistics. “It’s special to have relationships like that that you maintain and work together to accomplish a job,” said Tidwell, who was born in Montgomery and graduated from Lee High School.
He left Hodges because he completed his assigned projects, which included a connector road from Northeast Boulevard to the Wynbrook neighborhood, which reduced driving times for the residents and the distance from the closest fire station. He was also instrumental in the development of North Eastern Boulevard to bring in WOW, Burger King and a Mapco that is scheduled to start construction in January.
