Los AngelesNewmark Knight Frank is expanding its agency services platform with the creation of a new role, LA agency market leader. Industry veteran Bill Bloodgood steps into the new position, joining the firm as executive managing director. He will focus on expanding and building the agency services and landlord representation platforms at the firm.

“Newmark has a really good investment sales platform lead by Kevin Shannon in Los Angeles, and the company has not been able to capitalize on the agency services and landlord leasing side of the business,” Bloodgood tells GlobeSt.com about the expansion. “The impetus to create this role was to develop a team regionally to assist Kevin Shannon and the investment sales platform.”

The expansion will focus on talent recruitment initially, as Bloodgood curates a strong team to support Shannon’s capital markets business. “The initial goals will be focused on talent recruitment in the region,” he says. “We are looking for high quality individuals that have experience in the agency business. This is going to be a small team of high-quality professionals that can deliver landlord services across all of the Los Angeles area.”
