Cushman & Wakefield Expands Valuation & Advisory Services Group with 10-Person Team in Tampa

New Team Will Focus on Valuation for a Wide Variety of Asset Types Throughout Florida and the Southeast

TAMPA, FL, November 11, 2019 – Cushman & Wakefield has expanded its Valuation & Advisory platform with the addition of a 10-person team from Beshears & Associates, a boutique valuation firm based in Tampa. Led by David Beshears, the new team brings an impressive 25-year track record and will focus on a wide variety of property types, primarily in Florida and the southeast.

This addition will allow Cushman & Wakefield to expand the capabilities and coverage of its global Valuation & Advisory Group. The new team will work closely with Cushman & Wakefield’s existing valuation professionals and with its Capital Markets and Investor Services teams to provide detailed insights on real estate value.

“Valuation & Advisory is a key component of our comprehensive platform of services, which provides incredible value to our clients,” said Scott Garlick, Managing Principal of Cushman & Wakefield’s Tampa Bay office. “The addition of this team further solidifies our reputation as a leader in the Florida market and reaffirms our commitment to our clients.”

The new team’s valuation experience ranges from individual private properties to large national portfolios, with expertise in multifamily, self-storage, hospitality, auto service, manufactured housing, industrial, office and retail properties.

For Beshears, the move marks a return to Cushman & Wakefield, as he served as an investment broker with the firm’s Capital Markets team earlier in his career.

“As we make this exciting transition, we have nothing but confidence that our team will excel with the support of Cushman & Wakefield’s global platform and depth of resources,” said Beshears. “We have an extremely high level of comfort and respect for Cushman & Wakefield and look forward to the future success we will achieve as a combined force.”

In addition to Beshears, who joins as Executive Director, the team is comprised of Senior Director Michael Green, Senior Director Chris Larkin, Senior Director John Sabatini, Director Rachel Weideman, Director Robert Tyson, Associate Director Jordan Menke, Associate Director Catherine Butler, Associate Jack Tait and Administrative Assistant Rita Martino.

“David and his team are extremely talented and make a great fit for our firm,” said Jeff Smith, Executive Managing Director and Southeast Market Leader for Cushman & Wakefield’s Valuation & Advisory Group. “The strong client relationships, additional resources and specialized expertise they bring in areas such as c-stores, limited service hotels, self-storage facilities, and manufactured home communities will elevate our Valuation & Advisory business and allow us to serve a broader field of clients in this region.”
