NGKF Capital Markets has named Sean Fulp Executive Managing Director, Western Region. He and his team will concentrate on institutional investment sales throughout California and all major western U.S. markets, leveraging the full-service capabilities of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) and the resources of its affiliates Cantor Fitzgerald and CCRE.
Mr. Fulp began his career at Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank (C&CCNKF), which recently entered into a formal agreement to be acquired by NGKF. He was managing director of NGKF Capital Markets in Northern California at the time. Mr. Fulp joins from Rockwood Real Estate Advisors, where, for nearly two years, he was Managing Director and Head of Western U.S. Investment Sales, completing more than 40 sales transactions in 2013 that spanned across all major product types, product classes and western markets.
James D. Kuhn, president of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, said, “Sean’s return is one of several large steps to increase our market share in California, which is a key growth area for our company. Sean’s tenacity and deep understanding of institutional investment sales, particularly the capital and transaction stack, makes him a true standout and a rising star.”
“NGKF is already a dominant, full-service brokerage firm and one of the only full-service capital markets firms. We will be able to leverage resources and contacts with Cantor Fitzgerald’s Investment Banking group and affiliate CCRE. I’m excited to bring these greater capabilities to our clients and to define what a capital markets solution truly encompasses,” Mr. Fulp said.
Chuck Seufferlein, CEO of C&CCNKF, who will take on the role of president of NGKF’s Western Region upon close of the acquisition, said, “Sean’s reputation and relationships within our firm and throughout the industry are outstanding. His understanding of our company, culture and commitment to excellence makes him a perfect fit to grow the NGKF capital markets team not only in California but throughout the western United States.”
