ATLANTA-Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP has hired the seven-member retail investment team from Staubach Capital Markets. The same group of executives previously joined Staubach in January 2007 from Trammell Crow Co., which merged with CB Richard Ellis at that time.

Team members will focus on investment sales and capital markets transactions in the retail sector, HFF stated in a release. They will work primarily with the firm’s eight offices along the East Coast.

C. Whitney Knoll, formerly senior managing director and leader of Staubach’s East Coast Retail Team, becomes senior managing director of HFF’s Atlanta office. Knoll previously headed the Retail Capital Markets Group for TCC and led a team handling more than $3.3 billion in retail property transactions.

Joining Knoll at HFF are Lynn DeMarco, as a managing director at its New York City office; Bradley Peterson, as a managing director working with its Miami retail investment team; Richard Reid and James Hamilton, as directors in the Atlanta office; and Kevin Hurley, as senior real estate analyst and associate director in Atlanta.

Justin Greider, who previously worked with Peterson as a senior real estate analyst and senior financial analyst at both Staubach and TCC, is also joining HFF in similar roles. Greider is a frequent presenter at International Council of Shopping Centers conferences in Florida and was among Real Estate Florida’s “30 Under 30″ in the magazine’s February/March issue.

Manny de Zarraga, executive managing director of HFF’s Miami office, tells GlobeSt.com that the retail group will strengthen the company’s presence throughout the Southeast and along the East Coast. “They will be very instrumental in expanding our retail investment and capital markets platform,” he says.

De Zarraga adds that the former Staubach team was attracted to HFF because of its “one stop shop” concept of commercial real estate services. The Pittsburgh-based company has 18 offices nationwide and offers various services such as debt placement, investment sales and structured finance.

Staubach executives were not immediately available for comment regarding the retail team’s departure. Scott Wilson, president of the Dallas-based firm’s capital markets group, cited the group’s move from TCC to Staubach last year as a “people building” move that capitalized on consolidation within the commercial real estate industry.
