Trevisan, Sherman Lead Group in 13 Deals Totaling Over 1,000,000 Sq. Ft.
The announcement last week that Valeant Pharmaceuticals' 310,000-square-foot headquarters lease in Bridgewater, N.J., has been named a finalist for NAIOP New Jersey 2013 Deal of the Year capped a banner year for the Cushman & Wakefield brokerage team headed by executive vice presidents Marc J. Trevisan and David Sherman. Based in the commercial real estate services firm's East Rutherford office, the team has completed transactions totaling over 1 million square feet during the past 12 months.
Sherman and Trevisan represented Valeant in its commitment at SJP Properties' Somerset Corporate Center in Bridgewater. The largest new office lease completed in 2013, the deal retained 274 jobs in the state and will create another 550 new full-time jobs. It reinforced New Jersey's pharmaceutical industry dominance and won incentives that helped launch the Grow NJ program.
The team's other recent New Jersey tenant representation successes include leases for SES, Drinker, Biddle & Reath, LLP, the City of Jersey City, Comodo, Sigma, American Stock Transfer Trust, LS Power and Petra Solar to name a few.
Five years after their move to Cushman & Wakefield from CBRE, Trevisan and Sherman have built a powerhouse brokerage team in East Rutherford, noted Kim Brennan, Cushman & Wakefield's New Jersey market leader. "Marc and David energize this office," she said. "Their work ethic and ability to train young professionals to become accomplished brokers continue to make them huge assets for our organization."
Other members of the Trevisan/Sherman team include Slava Vaynberg, associate director and Mark Zaziski, senior associate. David DeMatteis, director, also supports the team. According to Sherman, his group's continued progress hinges on its ability to employ attention to detail and strategic thinking to create leverage in every transaction.
"Beyond the backing of a superior platform like Cushman & Wakefield, today's real estate professionals must distinguish themselves with best-in-class service and the wherewithal to understand both the economic and corporate-cultural issues that lead to successful lease negotiations. Collectively, our group has the skills set, relationships and experience needed to do well in this competitive environment."
