International commercial real estate services firm Studley is pleased to announce that Monty Harris has joined its Suburban Washington, DC office as a corporate managing director.

Mr. Harris re-joins Studley from the Atlanta office of Newmark Knight Frank, where he spent more than 10 years as a senior managing director.  While at Newmark, Mr. Harris was consistently recognized as a CoStar Power Broker and his team won office deal of the year in several markets including Atlanta and Miami.  He advised a wide range of corporations and professional services firms throughout the United States and was twice recognized as the Atlanta office’s top producer.
