ATLANTA – Transwestern’s Atlanta office today announced it has recruited commercial real estate expert and workplace strategist Kristi Farley to help further expand its tenant advisory services (TAS) group. As vice president with the firm, Farley will specialize in developing intelligent business solutions that assist her clients in making more effective real estate decisions and achieving optimized outcomes for their businesses.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kristi to our firm’s Atlanta office and our growing team of professionals,” said Clark Dean, senior managing director and partner. “She brings a 16-year track record of delivering business-driven workplace solutions for a long list of blue-chip clients. Kristi brings a fresh perspective and approach to tenant advisory services that challenges conventional thinking in the industry.”
Farley joins Transwestern’s Managing Directors Clark Dean and Bradley Fulkerson, both of whom were recruited in August to lead the strategic direction of the firm’s TAS group in the Southeast. Working alongside Dean and Fulkerson, Farley will help build the firm’s transaction sciences platform — an innovative new platform focused on producing outlier real estate outcomes that maximize business value for users of space. Transaction sciences are integral to advancing and extending Transwestern’s approach to service delivery throughout the region.
Farley was previously a managing director with Newmark’s Global Corporate Services and Consulting Group in New York City, where she worked on many of the firm’s most complex corporate real estate portfolios. Prior to that, she was a workplace strategist for UGL/Equis where she focused on top line revenue and productivity improvements on behalf of her tenant clients. Farley began her career with Interior Architects as a strategic designer and account manager after graduating from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in interior architecture.
