Avison Young has hired David Tilton as a principal, bringing his 36 years of experience to the firm in support of its investment sales practice and capital markets group. Prior to his move, Tilton worked as an executive managing director with Newmark Knight Frank’s Denver office.

Tilton began his real estate career with Frederick Ross Co. in Denver, where during his nearly 29 years he rose to the position of senior managing director & partner. Throughout his career, Tilton has been involved in more than $2 billion in transactions totaling in excess of 70 million square feet. His past clients include a number of large institutional and private equity firms, namely Hines, Miller Global, Legacy Partners and Columbia Property Trust.

“(Tilton) is a consummate professional who will deepen our collective bench strength in the capital markets service line. With more than three decades of industry experience, he brings key relationships that will quickly ramp up our institutional presence in Colorado and beyond. The addition of David to our capital markets team is significant; due to his extensive institutional-investment-transaction experience, he will provide a tremendous amount of value and elevate our brand within the capital markets space,” said Alec Wynne, principal & managing director of Avison Young’s Denver office, in a prepared statement.

Late last year, Avison Young hired three principals to bolster its capital markets group in the firm’s Washington, D.C., office.
