John Testerman is a senior director on the Berkadia Hotels and Hospitality investment sales team, based in Raleigh. In this role, he is responsible for providing value-add services to clients, specializing in repositioning hotel assets in both the branded, independent and lifestyle sectors.
Before joining Berkadia, Testerman was with Generation Companies, a 24-property hospitality development and management company. As director of acquisitions and development, he was responsible for managing hospitality acquisition, development, conversion, and disposition activity as well as overseeing and underwriting all investment opportunities.
These are just a few reasons we chose Testerman as one of the Atlanta/Southeast 2021 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s fifth annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
