Veteran Broker Chosen to Lead Growth
(MAY 11, 2020 – SAN JOSE, CA) – TRI Commercial/CORFAC International expanded its market footprint into Silicon Valley with the addition of veteran broker Joshua Gispan, who will serve as Silicon Valley Sales Manager, Senior Vice President of Retail & Investment. Formerly with Meacham Oppenheimer, Gispan is a well-respected investment and leasing broker with more than 33 years’ experience in Silicon Valley.
As one of Northern California’s top independent commercial real estate brokerage firms, TRI Commercial continues to strengthen its deep local roots and solidify a competitive regional presence. In his new position, Gispan will serve an essential leadership role in that effort and help shape the Silicon Valley expansion.
“The Bay Area is a diversified and dynamic market and our expansion into Silicon Valley provides a critical link in our operations,” said Edward F. Del Beccaro, Executive Vice President and Bay Area Regional Manager. “Josh’s values, strong local roots, and experience in the business mirror the culture and core values upon which our firm is built.”
As one of three partners at Meacham Oppenheimer, Josh specialized in multi-site searches, dispositions for large national tenants, and sales and acquisitions of investment properties. He’s served as an expert witness in litigation involving national tenants lease renewals and represented major landlords across the Silicon Valley in dispositions of single-tenant and multi-tenant retail centers.
“With its entrepreneurial business model and global connections through CORFAC International, TRI delivers sophisticated brokerage services on a nimble and responsive platform,” said Gispan. “We provide the same level of service as a larger firm in an agile collaborative environment where our relationship-driven business can thrive.”
Despite current uncertainty, TRI Commercial ownership continues to advance plans to strengthen and expand the company’s competitive presence. The firm quickly put a marketing and operational plan together to adjust to remote working with its staff and brokerage operations. These efforts helped position TRI over the past several weeks to adapt to recent events and smoothly transition more than 150 brokers and staff.

In 2018, TRI undertook a major overhaul of service lines, brokerage tools and marketing.

As we navigate the new landscape of CRE, TRI continues to focus on key hires and empowering existing talent companywide. As Del Beccaro notes, “We offer competitive splits, exceptional support services, and a sophisticated platform. Brokers are quickly noticing that TRI is a great place to pursue their business goals,” TRI is hiring brokers in all its San Francisco Bay Area offices in San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland and Walnut Creek.
