Newmark announces the expansion of the firm’s regional tenant representation services with the addition of veteran industry specialist Sam DePizzol as executive managing director. Focusing on the exclusive representation of office occupiers, and specializing on tenancy strategies of the region’s premier law and energy firms, DePizzol has completed successful lease transactions totaling more than 10 million square feet of space throughout his career.
“Sam DePizzol is a talented tenant advocate and real estate strategist, and Newmark is very lucky to add his skill set and dedication to office occupiers to our Denver platform,” commented Newmark Central Market Leader Kevin McCabe. “We are delighted to have his law firm expertise and perspective on the downtown Denver market, as well as his distinct sense of humor, high energy and quick wit. He fits in well in our expanding Denver office, and bolsters an extremely talented group of professionals.”
