Eric has a track record of quickly leasing up underperforming assets shortly after being awarded leasing, such as bringing The Rookery from 81% to 100% leased in six months, and 203 N LaSalle from 61% to 74% leased in three months. Eric’s clients include STRS Ohio, Metropolis Investment Holdings, BentallGreenOak, Blackstone, Sumitomo Corporation, FD Stonewater, s.boehme & co, The John Buck Company, Tishman Speyer, Teachers, Madison Capital, and Shorenstein Realty.
Prior to joining Transwestern, Eric served as a principal at Avison Young, where he was the national leader of the firm’s Landlord Agency Affinity Group and was responsible for agency leasing downtown and across the suburbs. Before his time at Avison Young, Eric was a senior director of leasing at Tishman Speyer where he was involved in the negotiations with CME for its 400,000-square-foot lease, as well as leases for Dykema Gosset, Wells Fargo and BP at the newly named CME Center.
