HFF has opened its Philadelphia office, successfully expanding its presence in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Leading the company's 22nd office in the U.S. will be Mark Thomson and Zachary Pierce (pictured, left), who will co-head the office as senior managing directors. Mark Popovich, senior managing director in Pittsburgh and member of HFF's leadership team, will assist the team in strategically growing the office to encompass all of HFF's lines of business to better serve its existing and future clients.
Thomson and Pierce formerly served as directors with Marcus & Millichap's national multi-housing group, where they specialized in the sale of multi-housing throughout the Philadelphia MSA. During the past 12 months their team closed on more than 3,000 units, including the Marquis, Colonade, and Ivy Ridge Apartments
"We are extremely excited to begin the next chapter of our careers by leading the new Philadelphia office of HFF. HFF has a truly unique culture, and its open platform of sharing information and resources is centered on putting the client’s interest first, which we believe sets it apart from other competitors in the market. Its national fully integrated capital markets platform and unparalleled access to domestic and foreign capital sources will add tremendous value for our clients," agreed Thomson and Pierce.
Also joining the duo at HFF will be Steve Rutman and Carl Fiebig, both former associates at Marcus & Millichap, and Heather Pushinsky, the team's marketing director.
