Based in Tampa, Henderson will work alongside Avison Young Principal Tim Callahan, to market and sell office, industrial, and net-leased assets throughout Central Florida.
“Orlando and Tampa have seen robust investment sale activity over the past year, warranting the further expansion of our Capital Markets Group with the addition of Allen,” said Callahan. “Allen and I share a long professional history during which I’ve seen first-hand the talent and creativity that he brings. I look forward to the opportunity to work with him again during a time of growth in the market and as a firm.”

He was a principal and partner in several real estate service and development firms and represented a variety of clients including large institutional firms such as Prudential, Aetna, MetLife, AEW, and Travelers.
“I’ve watched Avison Young’s expansion throughout Florida over the past six years, and was intrigued by the highly collaborative culture across offices and regions that allowed for its rapid growth in size, assignments, and sales,” said Henderson. “I’m excited to join Avison Young’s results-driven Capital Markets team as a positive next chapter in my career.”
