Prior to joining Transwestern, Eric served as a principal at Avison Young Chicago and was the national leader of the firm's Landlord Agency Affinity Group. He was responsible for agency leasing downtown and the surrounding suburbs. Prior to Avison Young, Myers also worked with Tishman Speyer as senior director of leasing.
