Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank Names Josh Rowell Manager of San Mateo Office

San Mateo, CA (12/15/2010)

Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank announced today that it has named Josh Rowell manager of the firm's San Mateo office.  Rowell will serve both in this essential management capacity and also as commercial brokerage leasing and sales agent.  Former San Mateo office Manager Bob Garner, who successfully managed the office for over 13 years, elected to leave management and focus his full attention on his brokerage career. 

"I am excited to welcome Josh Rowell to Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank's management team," said the firm's President & CEO Chuck Seufferlein.  "In his 13 years with the company, Josh has proven himself to be a leader.  He is incredibly respected within both Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank and the Northern California brokerage community.  I am confident that under Josh's leadership, the San Mateo office will continue to thrive."

Rowell began his career in commercial real estate with Cornish & Carey Commercial 13 years ago.  He was a "Top Five" producer for the San Mateo office 9 of his 13 years, and the "Number One" agent for 4 of those years.  He was also recognized as a "Top Producer" companywide in 2007 and 2008. In 2006, Josh earned the "Network Award" for completing more transactions within Cornish & Carey Commercial than any other broker.  That same year, C&C honored Rowell with the coveted "Russ Thompson" award.  This award is presented each year to an individual who is a true team player, possesses strong personal integrity and peer respect and promotes the best qualities of the firm.  In 2009 Rowell was recognized by the San Jose Business Journal as one of "40 under the Age of 40" of Silicon Valley's intellectual and managerial talent" to watch in Bay Area business.

"The San Mateo office is an important center serving thousands of the best businesses in the Bay Area," said Rowell.  "I am looking forward to managing the great team we have built in this office and to growing our market share here.  I am excited that with this appointment, I can also continue doing what I most enjoy -- representing tenants and landlords in office and R&D leases and sales."
