Ryan Vaught joins as Executive Managing Director and Robyn Hurrell as Director of Industrial Services; duo brings significant institutional accounts
TAMPA, Fla. (Nov. 14, 2018) – Ryan Vaught and Robyn Hurrell, two of the top industrial real estate brokers in the Central Florida region, have joined Colliers International Tampa Bay. They join what’s fast becoming one of the top industrial real estate teams in Florida.
The duo focuses on landlord representation, tenant representation and investment sales, having handled transactions involving more than 8 million square feet of industrial space in the past three years. In their first week with Colliers, the team has listed more than 4 million square feet of industrial assignments.
“Ryan and Robyn are terrific additions to our existing six-broker industrial team in Tampa Bay and twelve-broker industrial team throughout Central Florida,” said Danny Rice, Managing Director and Market Leader for Colliers International Tampa Bay, Central & Southwest Florida. “They are experts in helping local and national companies with a wide range of industrial real estate needs, leveraging their significant market knowledge and experience.”
Vaught spent the past five-plus years at JLL as Senior Vice President of Industrial Services, building an expansive portfolio. Prior to joining JLL, he was an acquisitions analyst with Brixton Capital Ltd., a private equity investment firm in San Diego, California. He previously served as a U.S. Army Officer. Vaught graduated Cum Laude from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and a Minor in Mathematics.
“Joining Colliers is an exciting opportunity for Robyn and I to expand not only our team’s business but also further the efforts to grow the Colliers platform throughout the region,” Vaught said. “With Colliers’ deep roots and capabilities in industrial real estate services, we can better help owners and occupiers of industrial property create value and seize market opportunities.”
Their client list included national and global industrial operators such as GLP, Becknell, Dalfen Industrial, High Street Realty Co., Birtcher Anderson, Bobeck Real Estate Inc., and Blue Steel Development.
Hurrell joined JLL in 2016, accelerating the growth of the industrial services platform due to her previous tenure working with an investment sales team at Cushman & Wakefield. As one of the youngest in the country, Hurrell has successfully completed her MCR (Masters in Corporate Real Estate) designation through CoreNet Global. Prior to that, she graduated from the University of Tampa with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting.
“Ryan and Robyn are top-notch additions to Colliers International’s team of more than 550 industrial brokers around the nation,” said Ryan Kratz, Colliers International’s Southeast Region President. “Our industrial platform is unique in its ability to support entrepreneurial brokers with deep resources, market intelligence, and empowerment so they can help clients make informed, local and multimarket decisions regarding their industrial real estate.”
