NKF Expands Latin America Market Coverage with New Tijuana Office

Mexico City, Mexico (12/22/2017)

9:00 AM

Newmark Knight Frank is pleased to announce the expansion of its Latin American presence, adding a Tijuana office to its Mexico footprint with prominent local professionals, Eduardo Rojo and Oliver Rodriguez, both executive managing directors of NKF, along with three additional brokers. Located at Boulevard General Rodolfo Sanchez Taboada 9551, Cosmopolitan Office Tower Suite 102, Zona Rio, the NKF Tijuana office will provide real estate consulting services for industrial, commercial and office product.

"The expansion into Tijuana and Mexico's Northwest market is another bold step in NKF's Latin American regional growth strategy," commented President, Mexico, and Regional Managing Director, Latin America, Giovanni D'Agostino, "and I am thrilled to welcome Eduardo Rojo, Oliver Rodriguez and the team to NKF." D'Agostino, a founding partner of NKF's Mexico City office (formerly Alles Group Mexico City), joined NKF in October 2016 upon the acquisition of the premier tenant advisory firm. "In 14 months our headcount in Mexico has tripled and will continue growing by adding the best talent in the country, just like Eduardo and Oliver."

Executive Managing Director Eduardo Rojo brings 26 years of vast experience in portfolio investment sales and dispositions, leasing, property management, acquisition, renewals, development and extensive build-to-suit projects for industrial product throughout Mexico, including oversight of large-scale industrial projects and developments in Tijuana - Mexicali - Ensenada, and Central Mexico. Previous experience includes ProLogis, where he was vice-president of business development for Guadalajara, Mexico City and Tijuana, and as a vice president of Marketing for Corporate Properties of the Americas, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Mexicali, Tijuana and Hermosillo.

Oliver Rodriguez, also executive managing director, offers over 15 years of experience in commercial real estate, where he has focused on the achievement of strategic real estate acquisitions and dispositions, leasing transactions, project development and build-to-suit construction throughout Mexico. He has completed over 15 million square feet of real estate transactions in the past 10 years, representing over $1 billion in transaction volume, for clients including Motorcar Parts of America (MPA), Foxconn and Vesta. Mr. Rodriguez has been ranked as a top 5 producer in Northwest Mexico since 2013.

"While the Tijuana market has a thriving industrial base, commercial and office leasing and development pose a vast window of opportunity to clients," stated Rojo. "NKF's expansion into the Tijuana market is timed exactly right to leverage these opportunities on behalf of our clients."

Rodriguez added, "We are pleased to join forces with NKF in Tijuana, and know the company's service line platform and entrepreneurial management style will provide needed structure to expand the services we offer to our clients."
