08/16/2018

Expansion Prompts New NKF Office in Leon, Bajío Region and Bolsters Services for Monterrey and Tijuana Offices

Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces the expansion of its Latin American presence, adding a leading Global Corporate Services (GCS) focused team in Mexico led by Executive Managing Director Sergio Pérez, SIOR, and Executive Managing Director Samuel Campos. The team consists of 27 professionals including 18 producers, six of whom are senior experts.

Ten of the 27 team members will launch a new NKF office in the Leon, Bajío region to reinforce the company's representation in Mexico, with established offices in both Monterrey and Tijuana.

"NKF has made great strides in the Latin American region, consistently expanding our professional roster and service lines and adding new territory," remarked NKF Chief Executive Officer Barry Gosin. "The addition of this team underscores the importance of our Global Corporate Services platform. In addition to solidifying NKF's GCS presence in all of Latin America, increasing the GCS footprint into new countries expands our ability to further integrate our global platform to service our clients' international markets."

Led by Sergio Perez, the team is known for providing strategic consulting services to high profile corporate clients, with deep capabilities in economic incentives negotiation and workplace strategies throughout the Latin American region. In addition to Pérez and Campos, the team's senior producers include Executive Managing Directors Edgar Cano and Martha Millán, Managing Director Héctor Guzmán and Associate Director Erick Brunet. Twelve support professionals on the team encompass transaction managers, researchers and consultancy specialists. All 27 team members joined NKF from CBRE.

"NKF continues to boldly expand into Latin America, and the addition of industry experts Sergio Pérez, Samuel Campos and the rest of the team, is an incredible victory and sets us apart from any other firm in the region," said NKF President, Mexico, and Regional Managing Director, Latin America Giovanni D'Agostino.

"NKF offers a progressive, forward-thinking, client-centric corporate culture focused on innovation and technology. It's an exciting time to join NKF, and I am eager to have a positive impact on the company as it expands its service lines throughout Mexico and Latin America," added Sergio Pérez. "NKF has the leadership, resources and commitment to support the GCS team as we provide strategic consulting services to our clients."

Previously, Sergio Pérez and Samuel Campos both served as Senior Vice Presidents of Business Solutions for CBRE, Mexico and have extensive experience in international business management, portfolio analysis, site selection, WPS and structuring complex industrial and office transactions throughout Mexico. Mr. Pérez began his real estate career as Operations Director for the ERA Real Estate master franchise in Mexico, later founding Insignia/ESG Mexico, where he was responsible for the Industrial Division at a national level. He then joined CBRE, where he started the first corporate business services practice team in Mexico and, in the past thirteen years, increased the two-person team to the 27-member team who today joins NKF Latin America. Mr. Campos started in the public sector over 25 years ago as Principal of Economic Development for the state of Aguascalientes and then the Director of Foreign Direct Investment for the state of Guanajuato.
