The team comes over from Cushman & Wakefield; based in Newmark’s Salt Lake City office

Salt Lake City, UT (November 10, 2020) — Newmark announces that office leasing experts Jeff Rossi and Trigger Reital have joined Newmark’s Salt Lake City office as Executive Managing Directors. With more than 38 years of combined commercial real estate experience, Jeff and Trigger have extensive know-how assisting occupier clients throughout the Western U.S. with lease renewals and restructurings, facility relocations, property sales, build-to-suits and workplace strategies.

“We are thrilled that Jeff and Trigger have joined our Salt Lake City office,” said Greg May, Newmark Executive Vice President, West Region Market Leader. “Utah is one of the nation’s most active real estate markets and having top tier talent to advise occupiers during this challenging time is a priority for our firm.”

Nick Wood, Newmark Executive Vice President and Salt Lake City Market Leader added, “Jeff and Trigger are a top tenant representation team in the region and will significantly bolster our office and our service to clients. They are perfect fit for Newmark’s culture, and I know they will be of immediate and tremendous value to the firm.”

For over 19 years, Jeff has exclusively provided for the needs of occupier clients, combining financial analysis, strategic consulting, market knowledge and other needed resources to help them make informed real estate decisions. Jeff has transacted on over 21 million square feet of real estate and closed more than 1,600 transactions over the course of his career. He has received numerous awards and recognitions over the years highlighting his successes including Real Estate Forum’s Tomorrow’s Leaders Southwest in 2014, Utah Business Magazine’s Forty under 40 in 2016, CoStar’s Power Broker Award every year since 2008, and CCIM’s Excellence Award for Top Performer in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

“We are very excited to join the team at Newmark. The opportunity to support our clients with best-in-class service, research and support is of paramount importance to us and to Newmark, and that alignment is the reason we are here,” said Jeff. “Our team is looking forward to collaborating, growing along with the company and delivering the full breadth and depth of services to our clients.”

Trigger has executed over 1,500 lease transactions comprising nearly 20 million square feet of real estate over the span of his nearly 20-year career. Trigger helped run Cushman & Wakefield’s tenant advisory group and successfully grew market share for both investors and occupiers on a regional and national level.

Trigger added, “Newmark is a first-class organization and we are excited to join the team.  Newmark’s cutting-edge research and technology offerings will enable us to deliver best-in-class information to our clients.”

In 2019, Jeff and Trigger won the CCIM award for largest office lease transaction in Utah. Prior to joining Newmark, the duo worked as Executive Directors at Cushman & Wakefield, where they were consistently top producers.
