Kidder Mathews, the largest independently owned commercial real estate firm on the West Coast, has promoted Paul Klink to President of its new Client Services endeavor, which will focus on expanding Kidder Mathews’ client relationships across all service lines. As a full service firm providing brokerage, property and asset management, valuation advisory, and consulting, Klink will tap into his 35 years of providing local and institutional clients the entire suite of commercial real estate services to enhance service delivery. He will be based in the firm’s Orange County and San Diego offices but will serve the entire West Coast. In addition, Paul will focus on recruiting strategic brokerage talent.
“With Paul’s well-rounded background and strong institutional and local client connections, he is a great fit to oversee the coordination of our robust service offerings and expand the delivery of services to our clients,” said Bill Frame, Kidder Mathews CEO.
Prior to joining the firm last summer, Klink was EVP of Industrial Services, North America for Newmark Knight Frank, where he focused on expanding NKF’s industrial capabilities and recruiting top talent. Before that, he was Executive Managing Director, Investment Services at Cushman & Wakefield, where he was responsible for the firm’s institutional investor clients, serving as a single point of contact for the company’s real estate services including property management, leasing, capital markets, and valuation advisory.
“Kidder Mathews provides a high-touch service element that is often missing in commercial real estate today. As many other firms have focused on IPO’s, earnings, and recurring revenue, they have lost the critical client-first element to the formula,” said Klink. “With my background of fostering a deep understanding of clients’ needs and coordinating multiple services, combined with Kidder Mathews’ ability to deliver a full suite of outstanding services, we’ll take our client solutions to the next level. Our people and our clients will always come first, and being a privately held firm, it affords us the ability to be nimble and responsive to the needs of our clients and stakeholders,” said Klink.
