Jason Warren joined Newmark Knight Frank in 2017 and is a member of a specialized headquarters practice group focused on mid-lease term optimization. The group utilizes predictive analytics to identify value creation opportunities for clients, agnostic of geography or lease expiration. Mr. Warren focuses on negotiating strategy and financial engineering, and he has led the development of an algorithm to identify candidates for mid-lease term optimization on a national basis. By forensically examining non-traditional opportunity indicators, such as landlord investment strategies, portfolio-wide exposure and anchor tenant impact on asset valuation, the team has successfully executed more than 1.4 million square feet of transactions over the past 24 months, with an average remaining lease term of 5.3 years.
Prior to joining Newmark Knight Frank, Mr. Warren was a member of General Electric’s Financial Management Program, where he developed a deep understanding of data science, corporate finance and GAAP accounting. He assisted in the implementation of accounting ERP systems, performed underwriting for GE’s solar portfolio and managed GE Transportations’ $40 million digital transportation P&L.
