Savills Studley has hired two senior-level executives in its Orange County office to support the expansion of its advisory services platform, including an increased emphasis on capital market transactions and industrial services. Savills, a global real estate firm headquartered in London, and Studley, a New York- based commercial real estate brokerage with 25 offices around the country, including the Orange County location, merged last June.
“The Savills Studley global platform and our complementary areas of expertise provide an opportunity for both entities to better serve existing clients and build new client relationships around the world,” said Royce Sharf, executive vice president and manager the of the Savills Studley Orange County office. “We are pleased to welcome Brian Corrigan and Andrew Morrow to the company, whose background and experience augment our current service offerings and support our strategic vision.”
Brian Corrigan has joined the firm as Senior Managing Director and member of the Capital Markets platform. Brian was previously with CBRE, Inc. His experience encompasses real estate finance and sales, mortgage banking and the placement of structured debt, as well as advising public and private real estate operating companies.
During his 30-year career in commercial real estate, Brian has successfully completed more than $5 billion in commercial property acquisitions, dispositions, financings and capital markets transactions.
“Adding Brian’s expertise to our existing capital markets platform is an important strategic move for us. In his role at Savills Studley, he will work closely with our professionals and add value by sourcing acquisition financing, recapitalizing, refinancing, and dispositions on behalf of our clients,” said Robert Stamm, executive managing director and leader of the firm’s US cross-border investments.
Andrew Morrow has been named a Corporate Managing Director and joins the firm’s Industrial Services Group. Andrew began his commercial real estate career in 2004 in Orange County and was most recently with CBRE, Inc.
He has worked with some of Southern California’s most prominent industrial, R&D, and office users, emphasizing client service and strategic market intelligence. One of his most recent notable transactions was representing Yokohama Tire Corporation for over 1 million square feet of industrial and office space. Andrew was named to the list of Top 20 CBRE Brokerage Professionals in 2014 in the Orange County region.
“We will continue to focus on developing the most well-integrated, highest performing tenant representative platform worldwide, while advancing our service offerings to best meet the needs of our clients,” said Sharf.
