Drawbridge Realty Expands Corporate Presence

Five new Drawbridge Realty professionals in multiple disciplines were recently added in San Francisco and Denver, according to Mark Whiting, Drawbridge Realty CEO. The key hires span the disciplines of finance and property management.

In San Francisco, Drawbridge added depth to its finance team with the addition of Nicole Kaneshiro, vice president treasury and finance, and Margaret Montgomery as controller. Josh Lian was appointed as an associate for the investments team.

In Denver, the property management team, led by Jennifer Baltus, has expanded with two new dedicated property management professionals: Sara-Ann Smith as senior property manager responsible for four of Drawbridge’s major West Coast assets and Christianne Crist as assistant property manager across Drawbridge’s nationwide office portfolio.

The appointments come on the heels of strong leasing activity throughout Drawbridge’s 5.7 million-square-foot portfolio. Deals inked in the third quarter included three full building leases in San Diego and Santa Clara totaling more than 200,000 square feet to strong credit tenants.
