What is your greatest professional accomplishment? Since joining Cushman & Wakefield in 2015, I have had the pleasure and honor of working with the #1 Investment Sales team in the New York Metropolitan Area. In 2017 alone, we closed more than 90 deals valued in excess of $3.2 billion, a record year for Cushman & Wakefield’s NY Metro Investment Sales Team in regards to number of transactions. In my years with the company, I’ve been directly involved in 36 transactions totaling $1.13 billion in value within the retail, flex, land, office and corporate advisory sectors. I am also especially proud of the relationships I’ve established with our clients as well as with some of the industry’s most prolific professionals. What is your most notable project, deal or transaction?
The most notable deal I have been involved in is the redevelopment and sale of Unilever’s North American Headquarters buildings in 2016. It consisted of a series of four complex transactions totaling more than $250 million and involved professionals across a variety of industry service lines. As a result of extraordinary financial engineering and strategic partnerships put together by our team, New Jersey was able to retain 1,600 jobs and keep one of its most notable employers in place. The transaction also represented the first venture into the U.S. for one of Europe’s leading developers of sustainable buildings and the deal won a NAIOP New Jersey “Deal of the Year” Award.
