STAMFORD, Conn. – Westport's Adam Klimek was among the top producers for Cushman & Wakefield as it posted a banner 2013, completing transactions on almost 2 million square feet, including office, retail, medical and industrial space.
Cushman & Wakefield has offices in Stamford and Westchester, County, N.Y. Its success was accomplished despite the soft market fundamentals in the office real estate market in both counties.
“When you look at annual office leasing activity averages in Fairfield County over five-year periods, there are notable differences,” said Jim Fagan, senior managing director and market leader of Cushman & Wakefield’s Fairfield and Westchester County regions. “Between 2009 and 2013, the average annual leasing was just over 2.2 million square feet. That’s a 27 percent difference when compared with the 3 million square feet leased annually during the five years prior."
Klimek was on the list of top producers in the Cushman & Wakefield office in Stamford. In 2013, he negotiated more than 150,000 square feet of leases on behalf of tenants and represented area landlords in more than 150,000 square feet of transactions. The landlords included INVESCO, Edgewood Capital, Faros Properties, Lexham Private Investors, Elite Development Group and the Silverman Group.
Klimek specializes in tenant and landlord representation services in Fairfield and Westchester counties.
In addition to Klimek, the Cushman & Wakefield brokers who also had banner years were Jay Hruska, vice chairman; Steve Baker, senior director; Matt Lisk, director (Westchester office); Gerry Lees, senior director; Al Mirin, executive director; and Maureen O’Boyle and Trip Hoffman, both senior directors.
