Newmark Knight Frank has made two new additions to its Minneapolis office. Brent Erickson and Erik Ordway have joined NKF as senior managing director and associate director, respectively. Erickson and Ordway will be focusing on landlord agency and select tenant representation assignments.
Prior to joining NKF, Erickson served as a senior director at Cushman & Wakefield. He has more than 27 years of experience in commercial real estate, encompassing brokerage and property management experience. His tenant representation includes clients such as Best & Flanagan LLP, Briggs and Morgan P.A., Lindquist & Vennum LLP, Marquette Financial Services and Winthrop & Weinstine P.A.
Ordway served as an associate director at the same company as Erickson since 2011. He worked on properties such as Colonial Warehouse, Flour Exchange Building, Marquette Plaza, The 15 Building, U.S. Bancorp Center and Wells Fargo Center.
“These professionals are industry leaders with extensive experience and successful track records providing value-add advisory services to clients,” NKF Senior Managing Director John McCarthy, said in a statement. “Erickson and Ordway have made names for themselves by creating value for clients in institutionally-owed assets, spearheading rebranding and renovation projects with a long-term focus on providing brokerage advisory services in the downtown Minneapolis market. Their extensive client relationships and industry commitment ensure their successes, individually and for the clients they represent.”
NKF recently appointed Miles Loo Jr. as executive vice president for the firm’s Los Angeles office, working on projects globally.
