Cushman & Wakefield Strengthens North California Capital Markets Group
Cushman & Wakefield has appointed veteran investment sales professional Rick Ryan as an executive director of its Northern California Capital Markets Group.
Ryan will focus primarily on the disposition and acquisition of properties located in Sacramento and the Northern California and Western United States, working alongside Seth Siegel, Steve Hermann, Eric Fox, Ryan Venezia and an established Bay Area group which covers a broad geography in the institutional segment. The group ranks as one of the top performing capital markets teams in the Northern California region and the top team in Sacramento based on recent deal volume and transactional activity.
Announcing the appointment, Seth Siegel, Executive Managing Director of the Northern California Capital Markets Group said: “Rick brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience in every phase and facet of the investment process.”
Ron Thomas, Director of Brokerage for the Sacramento office, added: “We are thrilled to have added someone of his talent, success and track record.
“Rick is a highly educated, committed, tenacious and top producing sales professional. His nearly two decades of experience and leadership qualities will be a valued asset to our robust Capital Markets Group in Northern California, and as we continue to help navigate the needs of our investor clients particularly through the continued challenges of the pandemic.”
Prior to Cushman & Wakefield, Ryan was a Partner at Palmer Capital where he was a leading, consistent top producer for more than 17 years.
A graduate in molecular biology from the University of California at Berkeley who holds a Master’s Degree from Penn State University, Ryan says: “I was intrigued by the opportunity to join one of the region’s preeminent Institutional Capital Markets Groups, and one of the world’s top real estate firms. Finding the right fit was extremely important, and the choice was clear given the depth of Cushman & Wakefield’s capital markets platform, access to a full array of client services, diversity of established relationships and an amiable, collaborative culture.”
