Columbia, S.C. (February 19, 2018) – Newmark Wilson Kibler announced today it is opening an office in Greenville. Edward Wilson and Givens Stewart, SIOR, have joined the firm as managing partners of the new office, which will be located at 101 East McBee Ave.
Edward Wilson will focus on the sale and leasing of office and retail properties, according to a statement from Newmark Wilson Kibler. He joins the company after nearly a year and a half at Cushman & Wakefield, where he was vice president of its Greenville office division. Wilson has worked closely with WCM Global Wealth as a portfolio manager and assisted with the acquisition of the Greenville News site, commonly known as the Camperdown development, the statement said.
“Edward’s experience in leasing, sales and development make him a valuable resource in Greenville’s expanding market,” said Wilson Kibler president, Det Bowers.
Givens Stewart, SIOR will specialize in industrial brokerage, as well as investment and land sales, according to the statement. He comes to the firm after seventeen years at Colliers International, where he was a vice president of its Greenville office.
“Givens is the best in class. He brings expertise, innovation and integrity to an outstanding team of brokers,” Bowers said in the statement.
“Wilson Kibler’s reputation in the state makes Greenville a natural place to start an office. With industry veterans well-known and respected by their peers, clients and customers, you can expect the Greenville office to experience dynamic growth,” said Stewart.
“South Carolina’s upstate has a vibrant community with an unparalleled quality of life. Our elected officials along with their economic development partners have an outstanding performance record. The suburban office market remains healthy while a slight increase in downtown vacancy raises some concern,” Wilson said. “Increased office demand in downtown markets will be critical in maintaining upward rate increases in other asset classes to include retail, multifamily and hospitality.”
