IRVINE, CA-Sperry Van Ness Asset Management & Leasing plans to expand its operations in Southern California and has named Don Keena vice president and regional manager, a new position that was created to spearhead that growth. Keena, who comes to his new post from Sperry Van Ness Commercial Real Estate Advisors, tells that SVN Asset Management & Leasing will focus primarily on growth in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire.

“We have 13 agents now and we would like to double that,” Keena says. Some of the new agents will be in Irvine, but most will be in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. “We will be looking to add senior agents with leasing and sales experience to really go out and bolster the third-party management and leasing,” Keena says.

Both Keena and Jack Carroll, president of SVN Asset Management & Leasing, tell that the company sees a chance to take advantage of changing market conditions throughout the commercial real estate industry as well as the growth that has occurred in the Inland Empire in recent years. As Carroll explains, “We believe that in a real estate market that is softening, property management and leasing are going to become more valuable to owners.”
