CRE Industry Veteran George Joins Cresa Boston as Principal From Equity OfficeFebruary 25, 2019
BOSTON–The Boston office of Cresa, the largest occupier-focused commercial real estate firm, announced that it has hired Matt George as Principal. In this role, Matt will leverage his 25 years of experience in commercial real estate on behalf of occupiers in the Boston real estate market and beyond while working closely with Managing Principals Dan Sullivan, Adam Subber and other members of the firm’s urban team.
“Having worked with Matt in the marketplace for nearly 20 years, we knew he would be a great fit for our Boston office,” said Dan Sullivan, managing principal at Cresa. “We’re excited to have his voice at the table with our existing and prospective clients and helping to bolster our culture. His relations and reputation in town speak for themselves.”
Matt has developed a sterling reputation throughout the course of his extensive career, spanning leasing and asset management, construction management, acquisitions, dispositions, redevelopments, repositioning and property management with leading commercial real estate firms and property owners in Boston.
“I am looking forward to this next chapter of my career in commercial real estate. I have worked in so many different facets of real estate, but I have a passion for the leasing and advisory side of the business, and I look forward to rolling up my sleeves on behalf of our clients. The culture and people at Cresa really attracted me. Across the organization, people work closely together, and everybody is focused on the same goal: exceptional client service,” said George. “Being able to have a stake in how we grow our practice locally and globally is empowering for me. And the ability to leverage the diversity of services that the firm offers beyond traditional transaction management—project management and consulting services in particular—gives me the confidence that the platform is a great one to service occupier’s needs in the ever-changing landscape,” George added.
“Bringing Matt on board exemplifies the hires we are looking to continue to make—one that adds a diversity of perspectives and experiences to our team, which ultimately strengthens the advice we provide our clients,” Sullivan added. “We couldn’t be happier.”
Prior to joining Cresa, George spent over eight years with Equity Office as a vice president of leasing where he was responsible for 13 million SF in Boston and Cambridge. Before this, he was a director at Cushman & Wakefield and a vice president at the Lincoln Property Company.Matthew George
