Gubner, Managing Director Christian Bangert, Director Alex Haendler, Director Sam Chambers and Associate Director Jon Conway have joined NKF from RHYS, a commercial real estate firm specializing in office leasing, retail leasing and investment sales throughout the state of Connecticut and Westchester County, New York.

"We are thrilled to have Cory and his team come to NKF to expand our presence in the Connecticut and Westchester markets," said Executive Vice President James Ritman. "They bring with them decades of experience across all platforms and we look forward to leveraging our industry expertise with the new team."

Mr. Gubner was the President and CEO of RHYS and has more than 30 years of experience serving commercial real estate clients and has overseen transactions with an aggregate value of several billion dollars.

"Having someone with Cory's 30 years of experience and in-depth knowledge of the Fairfield and Westchester markets is of immeasurable value as we expand NKF's Tri-State suburban capital markets platform," said NKF Executive Managing Director Kevin Welsh.

In addition to Mr. Gubner, Mr. Bangert was the Executive Vice President and Principal of RHYS and has more than 16 years of leasing and sales experience, as well as has been involved in numerous high-profile assignments throughout his career.

Rounding out the team, Mr. Haendler was a director in the investment sales division, Mr. Chambers was a director in the office leasing division, and Mr. Conway was an associate who supported both the investment sales and retail leasing divisions.

"My team and I look forward to joining Newmark Knight Frank," said Mr. Gubner. "NKF is a globally respected brokerage firm and I was attracted to its entrepreneurial nature and management style that allows us the freedom to build business organically both regionally and nationally. Each individual on my team brings a high level of expertise in the Connecticut and Westchester real estate markets and we look forward to working with the NKF group to help build the Stamford office and the Tri-State Investment Sales team with a forward-looking strategy that focuses on delivering quality results for our current and future clients. This is a win for our clients, as my team and I will be able to provide a deeper and far more comprehensive level of service and coverage for each and every prospect."
