Cushman & Wakefield | CRESCO professional Kevin Kelly received the 2018 Industrial Broker of the Year Award at the NAIOP Northern Ohio’s annual Awards of Excellence ceremony. The event recognizes the best projects, real estate transactions, and individual performances during the previous year within the industry.
2018 was a highlight among Kelly’s 32 year career, completing 36 total transactions that included 1.6 million square feet of industrial space and over 600 acres of vacant land. With approximately 65% of Kelly’s 2018 transactions coming from long-term clients, the award signifies his extraordinary ability to foster loyal relationships with clients that turn into decades of repeat business.
“My career has been a testament to the importance of building solid, authentic relationships with my clients,” said Kelly. “There’s no better gauge of how valuable you are to your clients than to have them repeatedly put their trust in you.”
Kelly’s successful 2018 year included working alongside long term clients such as Nelson Fastener Systems, Hinkley Lighting Inc and Northeast Ohio Factory Direct Furniture.
“This extraordinary year in business was not just a success for Kevin because of the numbers,” said Cushman & Wakefield | CRESCO Managing Director Nate Kelly. “It was a representation of many years spent establishing trust, transparency, loyalty and honor with his clients, and the integrity and steadiness that he exhibits on a daily basis is exceptional.”
Cushman & Wakefield | CRESCO had multiple other nominations at the ceremony, including two “Transaction of the Year” awards for their work with Philips Healthcare and Royalton Collection. Principal Rico Pietro and the Barna Caplan Team were also nominated for “Broker of the Year.”
