Senior Property Manager
Tom Craven returns as BEI Senior Commercial Property Manager with 18 years of managerial experience. He has a reputation for being an exceptional communicator and a detail-oriented team player. He strongly believes that the initial rapport one establishes with each tenant leads to a successful business relationship for all involved parties.
During his original four year partnership with Batavia Enterprises he had the responsibilities of overseeing the commercial and residential properties for this family-owned business. Tom was then offered the position of General Manager at Charlestowne Mall. He welcomed this assignment and set out to create a strong thriving shopping center for his beloved hometown of St. Charles. Tom accomplished his goals of increasing and maintaining occupancy within the center. For the next several years he took on similar career endeavors as the Operations Manager at Chicago Premium Outlets and Sales Manager at TCL Industries in North Aurora. Last October, Tom was grateful for having the opportunity to return to Batavia Enterprises.
Tom presently resides in St. Charles with his wife and two boys, Chip and Tommy. As an Indiana native, he has carried the love and passion for basketball with him throughout his entire life. Tom has enjoyed teaching both of his sons the game as their travel coach. Anyone that knows him can tell you how meticulous he is about his landscape and gardens. He takes great pride in grooming his yard during his days off. Tom was a past president of the St. Charles Breakfast Rotary Club as is still an involved member.
