Mohr Partners, Inc., a global corporate corporate real estate advisor, has appointed George E. Grace as a Managing Partner in its New York, NY office, joining Lewis Cowan, Managing Partner.
Mr. Grace brings 26 years of experience in commercial real estate. In 1995, he founded G.E. Grace & Company, Inc. As an independent broker and consultant, his firm completed a variety of assignments as an exclusive tenant representative including ongoing assessments and evaluations of a variety of real estate assets, headquarters relocations, large, complex transactions, strategic planning and successful implementation. Mr. Grace will merge his 6-person office with Mohr Partners, expanding Mohr’s New York office headcount to eight.
Prior to founding G.E. Grace & Company, Mr. Grace was a Partner in Clifford Real Estate Services where he focused on repositioning underperforming real estate assets for financial institutions. He began his real estate career in 1986 as a commercial leasing broker for the Cross & Brown Company, then the largest real estate management and brokerage firm in New York City. Subsequently, he was responsible for the 200,000 SF lease renewal for New York City’s Health and Hospitals Corporation and was the lead consultant for the NYC Educational Construction Fund which evaluated 22 Manhattan school sites.
Mr. Grace is a Certified Public Accountant and holds a law degree from Fordham University School of Law. Mr. Grace also holds a Bachelor of Engineering from Cooper Union and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business.
“We are very excited to welcome George Grace to our New York office. The New York metropolitan area is a key market and we expect this office to experience significant growth,” said Ted Fredericks, President of Mohr Partners. “Lew Cowan has established a strong office since upon joining Mohr Partners in 2010. The newly expanded New York office enhances our footprint in the area and the level of service we provide our clients.”
“George brings a multifaceted background and very strong commercial real estate expertise in the New York market, and we are pleased to have him and his team on board,” said Mr. Cowan. “We are in heavy expansion mode for this office and will continue to add experienced professionals to the team.”
“I am excited to join the company and partner with Lew in enhancing Mohr’s presence in the New York market,” said Mr. Grace. “I was very impressed with the Mohr model. My background for the past 17 years has been on the tenant side, so Mohr Partners’ position as a tenant-only representative was very important in my decision. Many of our top competitors have integrated into co-servicing the landlord side, and this separates Mohr Partners as a global corporate tenant advocate.”
