Excerpted from Commercial Property Executive story.
Adding industrial sales and leasing to its services in Orlando, Franklin Street has named Larry Kahn as senior director of the regional branch. Kahn will work together with Scott Edwards, senior associate for industrial services. The two brokers will focus on landlord and tenant services and site selection for local, regional, and national clients throughout Central Florida and the southeast.
Kahn has 20 years of experience in industrial real estate. Before joining Franklin Street, he served as a director for Cushman & Wakefield’s Rail Advisory Group, specializing in rail-served industrial real estate. His previous position was that of vice president at CNL Commercial Real Estate.
Edwards also specializes in industrial landlord and tenant services. Prior to Franklin Street, he occupied the position of regional sales manager with Dackor Designs, a national manufacturer and distributor of continuous laminates.
“Central Florida is transitioning from being a spoke to an industrial hub for distribution, which makes this a special moment in time to do industrial real estate here,” said Kahn in prepared remarks. “Franklin Street has embraced the change by assembling technology tools to better address customer needs.”
Kahn’s move to Franklin Street is the fourth in a series of recent executive transfers out of Cushman & Wakefield. Earlier this month, two of the company’s executives joined CBRE’s team in Tampa and another one joined the same team two days ago.
