NAI Partners Taps Joe Bright as Senior VP in San Antonio

NAI Partners has tapped veteran office tenant representation expert Joe Bright as senior vice president. Bright will relocate from the firm’s Houston office to the company’s rapidly growing San Antonio iffice.

The move to San Antonio will enable Bright to focus on serving clients in the Greater San Antonio area and Austin, in addition to continuing to meet the needs of his Houston customers. Bright was previously a vice president at NAI Partners in Houston.

Some of Bright’s signature transactions of the last few years include a 48,000-square-foot, build-to-suit lease for HCA Houston Healthcare; a 27,614-square-fot office lease for AES Drilling Fluids at 575 N. Dairy Ashford and a new office lease for Key Capture Energy Group at 801 Congress St. in Houston.

“We knew Joe was going to have a successful career in the business from the moment he walked in the door, and it’s been tremendously exciting to witness his rapid growth firsthand—not many in our industry make it from Associate to SVP in just four years,” said Gary Hebert, managing director at NAI Partners’ Austin office. “Joe’s current clients are lucky to have him delivering world-class service each and every day, and his future office tenant clients in San Antonio and Austin will also be fortunate to soon enjoy Joe’s elevated standard of client service excellence.”
