Commercial real estate firm Franklin Street promoted Greg Matus to senior vice president of investment sales.
Matus, according to a release, will now focus specifically on growing the company’s investment sales division on a national basis. He hopes to double the company’s national investment sales team by the end of 2017, the release adds.
Matus joined Tampa-based Franklin Street in 2014, tasked with growing its South Florida market. He has since tripled the number of employees in the Miami and Broward offices combined, and overseen the closing of millions of dollars in real estate transactions, the firm says in the statement. Matus will remain regional managing partner-South Florida until a replacement is found.
Prior to joining Franklin Street, Matus ran Marcus and Millichap’s Fort Lauderdale office, where he was vice president/regional manager of the company’s real estate investment services division. He also held that same position in the Orlando office, was a first vice president of investments, senior associate and director of the national retail group and multifamily housing group.
“Greg did a great job for us building a quality team in South Florida, so we’re very excited to see what he can do in this new role,” says Kurt Keaton, president of management and real estate services, in the statement. “Throughout most of his commercial real estate career, he has been involved on the investment sales and new business development side of the business. Now he gets a chance to take that skill set to a larger stage.”
Matus’ promotion comes at a time when Franklin Street is expanding statewide. The firm opened an Orlando office in May to connect its coverage from one Florida coast to another.
Franklin Street was founded in 2006 and now has offices in Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Key West, Jacksonville, Miami and Orlando.
