Campos, Gilbert, Barrett and Young Bring Depth and Complex Transaction Expertise
San Francisco – Jan. 19, 2016 – Raul Campos, Ken Gilbert, Sharon Barrett and Olan Young have joined Cushman & Wakefield from CBRE, building on the firm’s existing strength and adding depth and expertise on large and complex transactions.
“There are few teams in commercial real estate that can rival the work done by this team,” said Mike Kamm, Cushman & Wakefield’s Northwest Region Market Leader. “Their work focuses on getting the tough deals to the finish line is best-in-class and requires a very specific mindset rarely seen in traditional brokerage.”
Mr. Campos has over 25 years of experience advising clients on major acquisition and disposition projects throughout the U.S. and internationally. Before joining CBRE, he was one of the founders of Liberty-Greenfield Real Estate Advisors where he was the partner-in-charge of the real estate strategy practice. With Mr. Gilbert and Ms. Barrett, he brought an innovative approach to strategic acquisition assignments by combining an understanding of corporate finance and accounting with real estate and capital market expertise.
Mr. Gilbert has over 30 years of experience executing large-scale real estate projects throughout the U.S. He began his career with Century Development Corporation in Houston, Texas where he was a member of the development team that built and leased over 14 million square feet of high-rise office space. Mr. Gilbert was an early proponent of engaging the real estate capital markets to develop unique transaction structures for Build-to-Suit leased projects. His innovative approach also enabled him to re-structure above market leases and sell distressed corporate real estate assets.
Ms. Barrett has successfully completed over $2.5 billion in real estate advisory assignments for Fortune 500 clients and mid-cap / large-cap organizations. With over 25 years of national commercial real estate experience, she works on larger, strategic transactions and mid-market accounts. Ms. Barrett’s unique approach to client service is relationship-based and consultative, enabling her to win a broad range of transactional assignments.
Mr. Young is a Senior Financial Analyst and is responsible for the development and implementation of strategic real estate solutions for corporate clients. His focus is on these clients’ complex planning and transaction assignments both domestically and globally. Olan has completed over 10 million square feet of transaction and advisory assignments
“Having a strong platform and network of highly capable brokers to support my clients is incredibly important to me – and Cushman & Wakefield offers that platform with a broad and deep bench of talent and resources,” said Mr. Campos. “I’m excited to join the team and continue building on this momentum sweeping the market.”
