San Francisco, Calif (September 12, 2019)—Swift Real Estate Partners (“Swift”), a commercial real estate investment firm headquartered in San Francisco, recently hired Rick Buziak as its new Head of Operations. Rick is a strategic hire for Swift – his skillset will enable the company to capitalize on its recent growth and transactions activity.
Rick will be based in San Francisco and will focus on establishing and implementing protocols across Swift’s asset management, property management and construction management divisions. By further streamlining processes, the company’s platform will be set-up for further expansion across its target markets, especially as it invests for its recently raised Fund III.
Rick brings to Swift an impressive twenty-five-year track record in the commercial real estate sector. Rick recently spent seven years at Kilroy Realty Corp as Senior Vice President of Asset Management, during which he helped grow the firm’s presence in Northern California dramatically. Prior to Kilroy, Rick was with Equity Office Properties and Boston Properties, where he covered both leasing and property management initiatives.
“Swift continues to grow in its markets and as a firm. We were looking to hire someone that could cover many different facets of the company and strengthen the backbone we need to kick our growth into high gear. Rick is a great addition to the team,” said Swift Founder, CEO & President, Christopher Peatross.
