SEATTLE, June 22, 2017 — Transwestern today announces David Easton has joined the firm as Vice President in the firm’s Asset Services group. In this role, he will work with Transwestern to expand agency leasing and asset services throughout the Puget Sound market.
“David’s broad range of experience and extensive contacts in the industry will allow us to continue to expand our full-service platform and add additional brokerage capacity to our operations in the Greater Puget Sound area,” said Senior Vice President Mark Jackson, who leads operations for Transwestern in Seattle.
During his 25-year career, Easton has focused on property repositioning and leasing. Most recently, he served as partner at Madison Bay Commercial, where his team secured an IDIQ (Indefinite Duration, Indefinite Quantity) contract with the Port of Seattle to support the Port with all its real estate needs, including leasing, cost analysis, appraisals, sustainability and dispositions. Easton’s primary agency assignment with the Port of Seattle was at Harbor Marina Corporate Center, a 127,000-square-foot office and industrial campus, where occupancy is now greater than 98 percent. While with Unico Properties, Easton was instrumental in the $48 million capital upgrade program throughout the University of Washington’s 1.6 million-square-foot Metropolitan Tract in downtown Seattle, strengthening the tract’s competitiveness against the exploding Seattle market.
“Transwestern’s innovative service model, combined with its commitment to superior client service and unprecedented investment in technology, resources, training and people, make this a very exciting time to join the firm,” said Easton. “I look forward to utilizing my skills and relationships to serve our team and clients.”
