In an effort to boost its presence in San Francisco and Oakland, NKF Capital Markets has added investment veterans Tyler Meyerdirk and Seth McKinnon as new senior managing directors.

“Tyler and Seth join NKF Capital Markets at an important time,” Steven Golubchik, the company’s vice chairman, said in a prepared statement. “We have been focused on consistently delivering top-tier execution for our clients and have gained substantial market share in the last two years. With their expertise and relationships, we will further expand our reach throughout the Bay Area, with a deeper focus in San Francisco, giving clients access to even more opportunities.”

Meyerdirk’s track record

Meyerdirk most recently worked at CBRE, serving as a senior vice president and member of the CBRE Capital Markets team. In his role there, he was responsible for the sale and recapitalization of investment properties for institutional clients.

As a senior managing director of NKF Capital Markets, he will work alongside Golubchik, helping to grow NKF Capital Market’s already promising presence in San Francisco and Oakland.

Meyerdirk has a great deal of experience in the Bay Area, including helping on the sale of Towers @ 2nd, two office buildings in San Jose, totaling 411,544 square feet.

Overall at CBRE, Meyerdirk worked approximately 220 transactions representing more than $13 billion in sales, which included nearly 63 million square feet in the San Francisco Bay Area and Pacific Northwest.

McKinnon comes to the company from the CBRE Capital Markets Group. The 15-year vet has been involved in more than $4.5 billion of investment real estate transactions, with a great deal happening in the Bay Area. Among McKinnon’s deals are the $15.5 million sale of a Menlo Park, Calif., office building last summer.

They are collaborative team players, which is critical to the success of our NKF culture.”
