"I am very honored to be recognized by D CEO Magazine. I am just one part of an outstanding accounting/audit team at Lincoln. Their dedication helps our department meet, and often exceed, company and client expectations. They are the primary reason we are so successful," says Atalis of his team at Lincoln Property Company.

Over the course of his tenure, he has been instrumental to the firm in establishing accounting, policies and procedures, internal controls, cash management programs and audit procedures to evaluate whether property operations are in compliance with company policy.
Chief Financial Officer, Dennis Streit, says of Atalis, "He is always willing to go above and beyond what is required. If he sees a problem he is first to assume responsibility to correct it -- we could not be in better hands." Prior to joining Lincoln in September 1996, Mr. Atalis spent 12 years with First Worthing Company, a national multifamily real estate company, primarily as Vice President - Controller. Andy received a B.B.A. in Accounting from Southern Methodist University. He is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a member of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants.
