New York, NY (October 14, 2011)  
Patrick Breslin has joined international commercial real estate services firm Studley as executive vice president, East Coast Retail Services, announced President Michael Colacino.  Pat will play a key role in the expansion of Studley’s retail business along the Eastern Seaboard. He will be based in the firm’s New York office.

“Pat’s arrival is a signal of our continued commitment to bolstering the firm’s service offerings in the retail arena,” said Mr. Colacino. “His vast expertise will be a tremendous asset to the firm as we seek to ensure that Studley maintains its position at the top of the field.”

Mr. Breslin joins Studley from Grubb & Ellis where he served as President, U.S. Retail Division. Prior to that he was with CBRE, where he consistently ranked among the top producers nationwide.  At CBRE, Pat oversaw AT&T Wireless’ expansion in the Northeast, taking the number of stores from 40 to 266 before heading up the national rollout, which added another 1,500 stores in three and a half years.

In addition, Mr. Breslin demonstrated his quick deal-making skills and proved the importance of solid business relationships when, shortly after CNN lost its broadcast antennas in the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center, he arranged a new lease for the cable news channel at 1 Chase Plaza.  The entire transaction, from negotiations to execution, took 72 hours.

During his 25-year career, Mr. Breslin has completed more than 2,000 transactions totaling 8.5 million square feet and valued in excess of $5 billion.  Clients include JP Morgan Chase, Verizon, Talbot’s, Barnes & Noble and Donna Karan.
