SALT LAKE CITY-Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services has appointed Gary Mangum as regional manager of its Salt Lake City office. Mangum will provide support for the firm’s local agents and expand its services to clients throughout the region.

Before joining M&M, Mangum was partner and managing director with Synergy Real Estate Development, where he was responsible for overseeing the firm’s overall operations. Before that, he was the managing director and principal broker for the commercial real estate brokerage NAI West.

In addition, Mangum spent nearly a decade as the managing director and principal broker at Coldwell Banker Commercial NRT and was a member of its national advisory board. He has also been a partner and principal broker at Prime Commercial, a leading Salt Lake City commercial real estate brokerage, where he was responsible for managing the firm’s development and brokerage operations nationally.

“Gary has a great deal of experience and expertise both as a manager and as a commercial real estate investment professional,” says John J. Kerin, president and CEO of M&M. “As a regional manager, he will provide exceptional leadership and support to our agents in Salt Lake City.”

As GlobeSt.com reported in July, M&M named Richard Bird as national director of the company’s National Self-Storage Group. In his expanded role at the firm, Bird oversees all aspects of Marcus & Millichap’s National Self-Storage Group, which was involved in more than $460 million in investment sales transactions in 2012.
