Newmark¹ announces it has hired Mike Smith as Executive Vice President and Market Leader of its U.S. Northwest region. Smith, who takes his post November 8, will be responsible for driving Newmark’s presence in the Northwest market, working to strategically expand client services and oversee all operations for its 15 regional offices.
“Mike has a proven track record in managing large commercial real estate services teams, with an eye on improving processes and integrating service offerings,” said Kevin McCabe, President of Newmark’s U.S. West Region. “The Northwest is a hotbed for growth when it comes to technology, life sciences and overall population migration, and we’re pleased to have Mike’s leadership as Newmark expands its operations in the region commensurately.”
Smith, a 30-year commercial real estate industry veteran, will manage the region’s year-over-year revenue growth and profitability, recruiting, and training. In line with Newmark’s mission to continually enhance its products and services, he will also support the development of best-in-class workflow processes, focusing on promoting productivity and efficient client service. Smith will work closely with Newmark’s President, Northwestern Region, Chuck Seufferlein, who continues to supervise licensed activity within brokerage operations and serve as a strategic advisor within regional brokerage management.
“Newmark has established itself at the forefront of the major shifts that are shaping our industry, and I’m excited to become part of this leading organization within the high-growth core U.S. market that is the Northwest,” said Mike. “I look forward to leveraging our platform and market intelligence to further our expansion throughout the region.”
Prior to joining Newmark, Smith served in leadership roles with Cushman & Wakefield, both as Northwest Regional Managing Principal and President, West Region. He previously held similar roles with CBRE as President, West Region and President, North West, responsible for business development, high-level recruiting and strategy implementation.
As Newmark is poised for continued global growth, Michael Sheinkop, who has led the region since mid-2020 and has an ever-persistent passion for fueling the company’s brokerage operations, will be transitioning out of the Northwest by year-end in order to support corporate strategic investment and management to accelerate growth in a post-pandemic economy.
