Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces the addition of Dan Samulski as senior managing director. Samulski brings almost two decades of retail expertise in Southern California to his role. He joins NKF’s Newport Beach office from CBRE where he served as senior vice president.
“Dan represents another significant part of our growing retail focus in Southern California. He brings a broad perspective in both brokerage and sales working alongside some of the top retailer brands,” said Greg May, executive vice president, regional managing director, NKF.
Samulski has been a retail broker since 1999. Prior to that position he spent 12 years in retail advertising sales. Over the course of his brokerage career, Samulski has conducted transactions with Whole Foods, CVS, Sprouts, Olive Garden, Marshalls, TJ Maxx/Home Goods, Starbucks, and Panda Express, among others. He has handled leasing for major centers and developments that include Crossings at Corona, Chino Spectrum Towne Center, Buena Park Mall, Sycamore Hills Plaza, Towngate Moreno Valley, and Oakbrook Village.
“I look forward to further building NKF’s retail presence as there is great opportunity now in both Orange County and the Inland Empire. This is a great culture and the entrepreneurial focus of NKF is especially appealing,” said Samulski.
Samulski follows the recent addition of six retail brokerage professionals including Bill Bauman as vice chairman of NKF Capital Markets along with Bryan Norcott, Kyle Miller, Peter Spragg, Steve McDonald and Matt Schwartz in NKF’s downtown Los Angeles office.
