Once exploding at the seams in its office space on Louisiana Avenue, international commercial real estate services firm Studley, has moved just in time to accommodate two new people—Ed Bowerman, managing director, Project Management Services and Holden Rushing, associate director, Industrial Services Group. The two now hang their hats in Studley’s brand new office space at 133 Clay Street, suite 3700.
Mr. Bowerman bring more than 25 years of commercial real estate experience, having managed the operations and development projects for leading publicly and privately held organizations including Valencia Development Company, JP Morgan Chase, Trammell Crow, the City of Boston, and Graeber, Simmons & Cowan.
His depth of knowledge and experience is only rivaled by his breadth of experience, encompassing a variety of property categories—office, retail, hospitality and education.
As a managing director with Studley’s national Project Management Services group, Mr. Bowerman is responsible for coordinating all phases of construction—from strategic planning to on-site execution.
Mr. Bowerman received a Bachelor of Science in architectural studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
