Newmark Grubb Knight Frank has appointed Danny Williams managing director. Williams will be joining executive managing director John McMillan and recent hires Eric Lastition and Geoff Ludwig in the firm’s El Segundo office. In his new role, Williams will focus on industrial landlord and tenant representation in the port-adjacent South Bay Los Angeles submarket.

Williams joins NGKF from Prologis, where he oversaw the firm’s South Bay industrial portfolio of more than 13.6 million square feet. He was responsible for managing brokers, lease analysis and negotiations, tenant relationships and retention, budgeting, reforecasting and helping source, underwrite and execute acquisitions. Williams also worked as an industrial broker in the South Bay with CBRE for nearly six years.

“Coming from Prologis, Danny will bring an owner’s viewpoint to everything he does, which is very rare to find among brokers,” said McMillan in prepared remarks. “Also, his South Bay knowledge is unparalleled and his institutional mindset will give him favorable advantages and perspective.”

A resident of the South Bay, Williams graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2005.
