Industry Veteran Focused on Global Logistics, Supply Chain Management

IRVINE, Calif., April 8, 2015 – Kevin Turner, SIOR, GLS, has joined Cushman & Wakefield’s Orange County office in Irvine as an executive director. The 28-year commercial real estate industry veteran and Coto de Caza, Calif., resident is focusing on global logistics and supply chain management as part of the firm’s Industrial Brokerage team and has assumed a leadership role within its Ports and Intermodal Specialty Practice Group.

Previously, as executive vice president with Voit Real Estate Services, Turner specialized in the sale, lease, and tenant representation of office, industrial and research/development properties. He has focused primarily on Orange County commercial real estate since 1987, and is credited with being the largest industrial square footage producer in the Orange County market. He has leased or sold more than 14 million square feet of property nationally and internationally.

Turner recently completed extensive studies in global logistics and supply chain management through California State University Long Beach’s Center for International Trade and Transportation, where he earned the professional designation of Global Logistics Specialist. Today he serves on the academic staff there as an instructor in the GLS-CITT program.

“I went back to school to learn more about logistics and supply chain management, in order to better serve my existing clients in southern California, and expand my practice on a national and international scale,” Turner explained. “After thorough due diligence, I recognized Cushman & Wakefield as the right fit for my clients. The organization offers a robust platform – in terms of bandwidth, resources and specialty practice groups that will enhance client service and open up new opportunities.”

Turner has been the exclusive agent for The Irvine Company – Irvine Spectrum Land Sales, and has completed landlord representation work for Blackstone (IndCor Properties), The Koll Company, RREEF, Crown Associates Realty, JMB Heitman, United Bank of Switzerland and other major players. His tenant representation work features noteworthy transactions with Behr Process Corporation, Affinity Medical, Tyco International, Ricoh Corporation, and Frieda’s Inc., and many more household-name space users.

“Kevin brings the ‘whole package’ in terms of experience, knowledge, client focus and energy,” noted Cushman & Wakefield’s John Morris, Industrial Services lead for the Americas. “Our sector is in a time of transformative change and growth sparked by the improving economy, the expansion of e-commerce and the growth of domestic manufacturing. He exemplifies the type of high-caliber professionals that are leading our firm and our clients forward.”

Based in Rosemont, Ill., and with local representation nationwide, Cushman & Wakefield’s Industrial Brokerage platform provides global resources and local expertise for tenant and landlord representation, disposition and acquisition services, transaction management, and industrial consulting including labor and demographic analysis. In 2014, globally, this group completed more than 8,200 industrial lease and sale transactions, including Capital Markets transactions, totaling 337 million square feet, with an aggregate value of $16.8 billion.
