San Francisco, Calif. (October 13, 2022) – Kidder Mathews continues its Northern California expansion, adding David Nelson as Regional President of Brokerage for the firm’s Northern California and Nevada offices in San Francisco, Redwood Shores, Silicon Valley, Pleasanton, Sacramento, and Reno. He will oversee regional growth, recruitment of talent, and strategic client relationships.
Nelson is an 18-year Bay Area commercial real estate investments leader who was most recently Regional Manager of Marcus & Millichap’s San Francisco, East Bay, and North Bay markets.
“David is a dynamic leader with deep experience in recruiting and leading professionals, and we are very fortunate to have him join us. We are confident our clients and professionals will benefit significantly from his leadership and experience in the region,” said Brian Hatcher, Kidder Mathews President and COO.
“Kidder Mathews is poised for exponential growth in Northern California, following its recent rapid expansion in Greater Los Angeles,” said Nelson. “While other commercial brokerages have been consolidating into larger publicly held firms, Kidder Mathews remains privately owned by its brokers and key employees, giving it a unique edge to attract leading professionals. I’m excited to join this exceptional team and be part of its ongoing success.”
Kidder Mathews has become the largest independently owned commercial real estate firm on the West Coast, with 20 West Coast offices in five states, including 12 in California, and continues its momentum adding top talent to its roster. Recently, Kidder Mathews recruited former CBRE and Cushman & Wakefield leader Jim Kruse as Regional President of Greater Los Angeles, and former CBRE and Cushman leader Eric Paulsen as Regional President of Southern California and Arizona.
The firm has been named an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Company in America six times, achieving the magazine’s Honor Roll status. In addition, the firm has earned 81 Best Workplace awards companywide and over 500 top rankings and awards from national and regional publications.
