Kicking off its company expansion into the Southeast region, international commercial real estate services firm Studley will celebrate the grand opening of its 24th U.S. office in Raleigh, North Carolina on Thursday, April 18.
Hosted by Studley’s Raleigh Branch Manager, Tim Capps, the festivities will be held at CAM Raleigh, the city’s premier contemporary art & design museum at 409 W. Martin Street from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Highlights will include fine food, cocktails and a selection of art exhibitions from renowned local artists. Studley’s Chairman and CEO Mitch Steir and Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane are expected to attend the special event.
“From information and bio-technologies, renewable energy, and bell-weather, global corporations to arts and academia, Raleigh is one of the fastest growing markets in the country today,” Capps said. “With the diversity and strength of the intellectual and creative capital here, we are committed to expanding our footprint in this dynamic and ever-growing region.”
The new Studley office is conveniently located at PNC Plaza, 301 Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. It is the firm’s second office in the state of North Carolina and 24th in the U.S.
Capps, who is leading the local expansion efforts, is a former vice president with Durham-based full-service commercial real estate firm Tri Properties. A recognized expert in global tenant representation services, Capps provides oversight of Raleigh office’s day-to-day operations while spearheading an ambitious recruiting effort that calls for the addition of several real estate professionals in 2013. In addition, he will also oversee Studley’s expansion in the Carolinas.
Capps is joined by Corporate Managing Director Tucker Shade and Associate Director Greg Capps, both tenant advisory specialists and former colleagues at Tri Properties.
“Our new Raleigh office further demonstrates the firm’s unwavering commitment to expanding its service offering while providing the highest level of customer service to its clients,” Steir commented.
