Newmark announces that the firm’s New York office promoted an entire cohort of talent who demonstrated agility, hard work and perseverance throughout the pandemic-related market disruptions. The promotions cover a span of gifted real estate professionals from Associate Directors to Vice Chairmen. This crop of notable talent turned the adversity experienced in the field since March 2020 into a business opportunity by becoming indispensable guides to their clients as they navigated the shifting real estate market.
“Newmark is known in the industry as a firm that fosters growth from within its ranks. It’s a place where many of our senior leaders started here as associates and associate directors,” said David Falk, President of Tri-State Region. “This talent-mentorship didn’t stop during the pandemic, and many of our rising stars took the reins by working together to counsel our clients. They demonstrated a strong commitment to hard work and creativity, and we are proud of them.”
The on-the-ground work and trust built by these team members during the darkest moments of the pandemic led to one of the most significant new business pipelines for the firm. The cohort leveraged Newmark resources, including research reports, white papers, new technology and workplace strategy to advise clients on market conditions, the ever-evolving COVID-19 regulations, shifting retail trends, office layout guidance and sale/financing opportunities. This counsel helped clients make informed decisions throughout the pandemic and position themselves for the post-COVID-19 environment.
“I’ve lived through several economic downturns, and this pandemic has been one of the most challenging, especially for younger talent,” said Sam Buckley, Executive Vice President of the firm’s New York Brokerage Services. “However, it was incredible to see these members shift gears and quickly adapt and thrive as the world changed around them. As a result, they provided timely and valuable counsel to our clients by leveraging all of Newmark’s resources to help them navigate the quickly-evolving commercial real estate landscape.”
