Sacramento, CA: DTZ, a leading global property services firm, has appointed Mark Hefner, Senior Vice President & Managing Director of DTZ’s Sacramento office to serve as Senior Broker to the DTZ lease transaction team serving the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Pacific Rim Region 9. GSA’s Region 9 is headquartered in San Francisco, CA and comprises California, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii and the U.S. Pacific Territories.

Hefner, MarkDTZ is one of four commercial real estate firms appointed in 2010 to provide lease acquisition and post award services to the GSA and its wide range of Federal Agency clients across all 50 states and territories including Guam and Puerto Rico. DTZ has maintained a productive 17-year relationship with the GSA dating back to the GSA’s first brokerage services contracts issued in February 1997.

In GSA Region 9, Mr Hefner will be working with DTZ Senior Vice President Devpal Gupta, who is located in Phoenix, AZ and DTZ’s regional team of transaction managers led by Erika Kaufman, Vice President and Regional Manager of DTZ’s GSA West Region, who is located in Denver, CO. DTZ’s National Broker Contract with GSA is overseen and managed by Senior Vice President Christopher Reutershan who is based in Washington D.C.

Since 2010, Mr. Hefner has served as Senior Broker for GSA Northwest/Artic Region 10 which includes Alaska, Oregon, Idaho and Washington. During the past four years Mr. Hefner and his DTZ team have worked on some of Region 10’s most important leasing assignments and have provided exemplary service to the GSA within this Region. “We have managed to save the American taxpayers and the GSA a lot of money and time,” commented Mr. Hefner. “This is reflected in the consistently high scores we have received from the GSA over the past four years. It is due to our tenacity in the negotiation process, and unwillingness to take no for an answer. We work hard and never fail to add value.”

Mr. Hefner joined DTZ in 2010 and in addition to his role on the GSA transaction team, he is responsible for managing DTZ’s growth, operations and services in the Sacramento, Seattle and Nevada offices with service and experience gained throughout California’s Central Valley south to Fresno and north to Redding.
