Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces the addition of 20-year industry expert Richard Holden as Vice President of Property Management for the firm's West Coast, to drive the service line's efforts throughout the region. Mr. Holden is responsible for leading and growing property management operations for the region's portfolio totaling more than 11.5 million square feet - implementing strategic programs to ensure properties' success along with support staff recruitment, training and performance management.

"Bringing on well-respected industry veterans like Richard continues to successfully augment NKF's ability to serve new markets and clients with customized, local property management," said Randy J. Buddemeyer, NKF President of Management Services. "Richard's decades of experience in the property management space and his aptitude for recognizing market expansion opportunities are exceptional benefits to NKF and our clients, both existing and future."

Mr. Holden has a proven track record of growing management portfolios; most recently, at Davis Partners, he expanded the company's footprint into the Bay Area, Sacramento and Washington markets.

"The addition of Richard underscores the significant value that property management provides for all other NKF service lines and professionals. As the daily touchpoint for many local and institutional clients, our property managers are the face of client service and we are excited to have Richard spearhead such a key role, working alongside NKF's West Coast leadership," stated Executive Vice President Greg May, Executive Vice President, West Region Market Leader.

"Richard's expertise in the complexities and changing landscape of the property management business will also be an outstanding benefit to our company, professionals and clients," added Executive Vice President and Regional Managing Director Bryan Courson, based in NKF's San Francisco office.

Mr. Holden will work closely with May and Courson to accomplish their West Coast client strategies. Mr. Holden joins NKF from Davis Partners, where he was an Executive Vice President. Previously, Mr. Holden held positions as Vice President of Woodmont Real Estate Services; Senior Leasing and Property Manager for the East Bay and San Francisco markets at RREEF; and as a leasing agent at Bay Area-based BT Commercial.

"In step with NKF's expanding local and national platform of services and entrepreneurial culture, this is the right move in my career.
