Paul Cooke III serves in the role of Analyst in Brokerage for The Retail Connection, where his focus is tenant and landlord representation.

Before joining TRC, he worked for Tony Fay Public Relations where he produced final video presentations to recruit for the NCAA Women’s Final Four Bid to Dallas, Texas. He also assisted with the press and the logistics for talent for the National Championship Game while monitoring the beauty shot on Game Day. In addition, Topgolf recruited him to work as a bay host to ensure the guest experience was fun and exciting for the Summer of 2016.

His passion for retail commercial real estate started when he worked for his mom at her own leather goods and accessories company, O-Venture. He went door-to-door to establish target markets and help grow the store base nationwide.

Earning his bachelor’s degree in Sports Management, he also minored in Business at SMU and graduated in May 2019. Outside of TRC, he loves to watch and attend sports events—mainly football and basketball.
A little fun fact: he collaborated closely with Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys for his Hall of Fame video.
