NKF Promotes John McMillan to Vice Chairman

NKF promoted John McMillan to Vice Chairman in the firm’s South Bay office. McMillan joined NKF in 2016 as an executive managing director, and currently leads a team including partners Jeff Sanita, Danny Williams and Greg Stumm.

NKF’s Phil Brodkin says, “Over a very short period of time since joining NKF, John has proven to be a great leader for our industrial service line, and has been instrumental in some of our biggest industrial recruiting efforts with a focus on increasing market share throughout the West Coast.”

Prior to joining NKF, McMillan was a top producer at Cushman & Wakefield. Since joining NKF, he’s qualified as a Top Producer, and in 2018 finished in the Top 100 brokers for NKF firm wide.
