We are now in San Francisco to better serve them,” said Travis Kononen, the new executive overseeing the San Francisco office and senior director at Ferguson Partners, Ltd.

In addition to San Francisco and Chicago, Ferguson has offices in Boston, New York, London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo. William J. Ferguson, co-chairman and co-CEO of Ferguson Partners, Ltd., said that adding San Francisco as part of Ferguson’s growing international business was the logical next step for the company.

“More and more, our searches for executives and directors are becoming global,” said Ferguson. “San Francisco is home to countless REIT’s, and real estate investment managers, the core of our practice. It’s also the “launching point” for entry into Asia, a key for our global platform. With experience in both London and New York, Travis has significant experience conducting leadership searches for global REIT’s and real estate investment managers.”
