The remaining members of Siegel-Gallagher Inc.’s brokerage group have joined Houston-based Transwestern, which is expanding its services to southeastern Wisconsin.
John Dulmes, Daniel Walsh and Marianne Burish join Transwestern as executive vice presidents, while Shaun Dempsey will serve as a vice president.
“Already home to our national Sustainability Services group, Milwaukee is familiar territory for Transwestern and has long been viewed as a market with tremendous opportunity to grow our presence,” said Mike Watts, Transwestern’s Midwest president. “The Siegel-Gallagher team’s strong reputation and comprehensive experience throughout southeast Wisconsin ensures our clients will receive the highest level of service from professionals who know the market better than anyone.”
Focused primarily on tenant advisory, agency leasing and investment sales in the office sector, Dulmes, Walsh, Burish and Dempsey have executed more than $1 billion in real estate lease transactions on behalf of building owners to date.
Last week, the team won the 2016 Deal of the Year Award from the Commercial Association of Realtors Wisconsin (CARW) for its representation of Bader Rutter & Associates in a 60,000-square-foot headquarters lease at 1433 N. Water St. in downtown Milwaukee.
The brokers will remain in their current office at 252 E. Highland Ave. Transwestern has a National Sustainability office in Milwaukee at 234 W. Florida St., which will also remain.
The move will not affect Milwaukee-based property management firm Siegel-Gallagher Management Co., which is a separate entity from Siegel-Gallagher Inc.
Patrick Gallagher, who was one of the founding members of the brokerage in 1995, left Siegel-Gallagher in April to join competitor CBRE as an investment broker.
Gallagher sold the firm to Dulmes, Burish and Walsh when he left.
