Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) is pleased to announce that distinguished commercial real estate specialists Judy Simon and Lindsay Hach have joined the firm’s Cleveland office as associate director of management services and senior property manager, respectively. Joining NKF from Cushman & Wakefield, Simon and Hach specialize in property management assignments within the Cleveland area. The duo will continue to focus on expanding the firm’s property management footprint while leveraging the strength of NKF’s full-service global platform.
Simon and Hach brought 1.7 million square feet in managed assets to NKF’s Cleveland office and just earned a new 575,000-square-foot CBD office management assignment that commenced at the onset of the third quarter. NKF’s property management team in Cleveland now manages a total of 4,501,535 square feet of office, industrial and retail assets.
“We continue to attract top talent in our service lines and Ohio represents some of the best opportunity in the country,” said NKF Executive Managing Director Robert Nosal. “We are fully resourced with top talent in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland and we look forward to being one of the finest commercial real estate providers in Ohio.”
Bringing more than 25 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry to her role, Simon is responsible for NKF’s Cleveland property management operations and staff, and collaborates with local and regional leasing and investment sales professionals to grow NKF’s management portfolio, cross-sell NKF services and advise building owners on strategies for maximizing the value of their properties. Simon also partners with local NKF brokerage leadership in the Cleveland market to strengthen and expand client relationships. Prior to joining NKF, Simon was a senior property manager at Cushman & Wakefield and oversaw a diverse portfolio of office, industrial and retail assets. She also served as director of operations of asset services at CBRE for 14 years, where she was responsible for the management of 1.2 million square feet of office/retail and industrial properties, new business transition and supporting the market leader in overseeing the daily operations of the Cleveland portfolio.
“I am thrilled to join NKF and to work with such a talented group of real estate professionals,” said Simon. “During my career, I have watched NKF’s Cleveland office mature in market share from afar and I’m elated to be part of the continued growth.”
Hach brings more than 16 years of commercial real estate experience to her role with NKF. Her responsibilities include the day-to-day management of two CBD towers totaling 1.1 million square feet of space. Furthermore, she provides senior oversight of an additional 700,000 square feet of office and industrial property in the suburban market.
