NAI launches San Jose Office, Industry Leaders Follow

March 20, 2012, San Jose, CA – NAI Northern California is proud to announce the addition of Douglas Sharpe as Managing Director/ Senior Vice President in the newly established San Jose office. NAI made news with 15 hires in the last 12 months and continues to expand.

“NAI Global has strong relationships and requirements in the San Francisco Bay Area and we are excited to be able to better serve those needs. The San Francisco Bay Area remains a top priority for NAI Global. We are thrilled with the leadership and expansion in the region as we continue our strategy to upgrade and improve our fully diversified commercial real estate services platform,” Jeffrey M. Finn, President and CEO of NAI Global.

“The San Jose office represents another step in our plan to expand and upgrade across the entire Bay Area. Brokers continue to migrate to our global platform. It’s stronger than ever and I think they recognize that opportunity,” James Kilpatrick, President of NAI Northern California.

Mr. Sharpe joins NAI Northern California in their San Jose office from Grubb & Ellis where he was a Senior Vice President. He brings experience with major projects for public organizations, private high net worth individuals, government, and Fortune 500 Companies. He has supported multi-market relocations, strategic development planning, implementation of occupancy cost reduction strategies, and advanced lease renewals.

“I’m excited about returning to the NAI platform. With the addition of C-III and Andrew Farkas to the equation, I believe this will be a uniquely opportune time to be part of NAI,” Douglas Sharpe.

C-III Capital Partners’ acquisition of NAI Global made press in January, followed up by a round of recruiting and investments within the company. At the local level, six Grubb & Ellis agents have joined NAI when Grubb & Ellis filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
