HFF Appoints Fishel to Co-Head LA Office

Fishel Will Lead Office’s Debt & Equity Placement Business
January 24, 2018
HFF has tapped Bill Fishel, senior managing director to co-head the firm’s Los Angeles office.

In his new role, Fishel will lead the office’s debt and equity placement business, working alongside Paul Brindley, senior managing director, who will oversee the office’s investment advisory platform.

Fishel replaces Kevin MacKenzie, Executive managing director and previous co-head of the Los Angeles office, who has stepped out of the day-to-day oversight of the office and has been elevated to HFF’s seven-member executive committee, which is responsible for implementing the strategic direction of the firm.

"Los Angeles continues to be a top strategic market for our firm, and the level of talent we have been able to grow and recruit in recent years has resulted in significant market share gains across our various product types and platforms," said MacKenzie. "Bill has helped drive many key initiatives while adhering to our player/coach model in providing the highest level of service to our clients. This leadership change follows our philosophy of putting the most talented and passionate individuals in a position to lead."

Fishel has more than eight years of commercial real estate experience, having joined HFF’s Dallas office in 2009 as a member of its debt and equity placement team before transitioning to the firm's Los Angeles office in 2014. During his tenure with the company he has been involved in more than $7.4 billion in completed commercial real estate capitalizations.

Fishel is a board member of the CRC Foundation, sits on the steering committee of CAIA Los Angeles and is an active cabinet member of the real estate division of Make-A-Wish Los Angeles. He is a graduate of Yale University, where he received his bachelor's degree in political science and is an alumnus of the Brady-Johnson studies in grand strategy graduate seminar.
