Greg Wells has been tapped for a leadership position within the Cushman & Wakefield Self Storage Industry Group. Wells, a 13-year veteran in the self-storage asset class, will serve as director of brokerage services.
The firm’s national self-storage brokerage expert, Wells has sold more than 6 million square feet of self-storage space totaling in excess of $400 million throughout his career. He will work out of the main San Diego office and be responsible for providing services to clients nationwide and also work closely with the team’s valuation and advisory groups.
According to valuation services managing director Christian Sonne, Wells will increase the team’s depth of experience and range of services provided to a growing international client base. Those services include investment sales, valuation, research and analysis, demand forecasting and feasibility.
Wells himself said that the self-storage industry is faring better than other industry assets, with transaction volume gaining momentum. He added that the country’s west and northeast areas appear to be particularly fertile.
Cushman & Wakefield was founded in 1917 and has 230 offices in 60 countries with more than 13,000 employees.
