Philadelphia, PA David Fahey, Avison Young Principal and Managing Director of the firm’s Philadelphia-area offices, today announced the appointment of Matthew Marshall as Avison Young Principal, based in Philadelphia. Marshall specializes in working with clients on agency leasing, tenant representation and corporate solutions in the industrial sector.

“We are excited to have Matt join our team. His experience, skills and relationships will further our ability to serve institutional owners and industrial users in our region, as well as around the country,” said Fahey. “He’s a wonderful addition to our team, who specializes in warehouse and distribution space, build-to-suit development, and manufacturing and food processing facilities. The impacts of COVID-19 on the market have reinforced the important role industrial real estate assets can have on business performance and securing the right facilities will remain critical.”

Avison Young’s industrial team in the Philadelphia area and beyond offers a full lifecycle of services for industrial clients, including pre-development consulting, agency marketing and leasing, corporate build-to-suit, multi-market portfolios, buyer and tenant representation, and sale and leaseback transactions.

“The Avison Young services platform is what most brokers are seeking in a global commercial real estate company – a client-centric and people-centric business model, with significant strengths in property research, technology, marketing and client-facing services,” said Marshall. “The high caliber of professionals in the organization, brokerage support, team approach and continued growth drew me to the firm. I look forward to working with my colleagues to deliver solutions to industrial clients as we all navigate this unprecedented time together.”

Marshall joins Avison Young from Cushman and Wakefield where he served as Managing Director in Philadelphia. He brings more than 25 years’ experience in the commercial real estate and industrial sectors. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.
