Arlington, VA (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
Eugene D. Smith has joined FD Stonewater from Lincoln Property Company where he served as a Vice President for the past 5 years.
FD Stonewater’s recruitment of Mr. Smith, a talented and seasoned real estate veteran with more than two decades of industry experience, is a strategic hire that will continue the expansion of the rapidly growing company’s leasing platform. “Eugene is as well-respected of a person and professional that one will find in the marketplace.” said Joe Delogu, a principal at FD Stonewater who worked with Mr. Smith at the General Services Administration in the early 1990s, where Mr. Smith began his career. “His capabilities and track record in brokering both private sector and federal government related transactions will be a key force in our ability to effectively service our valued clients.”
Mr. Smith’s tenure with FD Stonewater formally commenced on January 3 when he began his post as a Managing Director of Leasing for the firm’s brokerage division. Mr. Smith, who started his career inside Government, has spent the last 12 years in the private sector where he has successfully completed over 5 million square feet of transactions. Along with expanding the FD Stonewater’s private and public leasing capabilities, Mr. Smith will be charged with creating new, diverse opportunities for the brokerage platform both in the Washington, DC metro area and nationwide.
FD Stonewater was formed through the recent merger of two boutique real estate firms, FD Partners based in Arlington, Virginia and Stonewater Partners of New York and Los Angeles. The merger brings together a combined track record of more than $10 billion in investment and acquisitions and over 37 million square feet of lease transactions, to offer a fully-integrated, national real estate platform with capabilities in Principal Investment, Development, Advisory and Brokerage activities.
