"We are honored to once again be named one of Atlanta's top commercial real estate firms," said Bruce Ford, Transwestern's Southeast president. "Our ability to gain status in an increasingly competitive industry is the direct result of our strategic effort to expand our platform with exceptionally qualified real estate professionals."
Since January 2013, Transwestern has recruited several of Atlanta's most prominent industry leaders, including Bo Jackson and Clark Dean as senior managing directors; Managing Director Bradley Fulkerson as a leader in tenant advisory services; and Trent Germano as managing director to grow Transwestern Development Co.'s Southeast arm.
