Mr. Ryan, an Executive Director, brings an accomplished career of nearly 20 years and will strategically be based in the firm’s Sacramento office. He will focus primarily on the disposition and acquisition of properties located in Sacramento, as well throughout Northern California and the Western U.S.
Mr. Ryan will be an important part of the firm’s Bay Area-based Capital Markets Group (partnering with Seth Siegel, Steve Hermann, Eric Fox, Ryan Venezia and an established/coordinated team), which covers a broad geography in the institutional segment. The group ranks as one of the top performing capital markets teams in the Northern California region and the top team in Sacramento based on recent deal volume and transactional activity.
“Rick brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience in every phase and facet of the investment process,” said Seth Siegel, Executive Managing Director with Cushman & Wakefield’s Northern California Capital Markets Group. “We are thrilled to have added someone of his talent, success and track record.”
Ron Thomas, Director of Brokerage with Cushman & Wakefield’s Sacramento office, added, “We are very pleased to have Rick aboard our team, both as a member of our Capital Markets and stationed in our Sacramento office. Rick is a highly educated, committed, tenacious and top producing sales professional. His nearly two decades of experience and leadership qualities will be a valued asset to our robust Capital Markets Group in Northern California, and as we continue to help navigate the needs of our investor clients particularly through the continued challenges of the pandemic.”

Rick Ryan said, “I was intrigued by the opportunity to join one of the region’s preeminent Institutional Capital Markets Groups, and one of the world’s top real estate firms. Finding the right fit was extremely important, and the choice was clear given the depth of Cushman & Wakefield’s capital markets platform, access to a full array of client services, diversity of established relationships and an amiable, collaborative culture.”
