Edge, a full-service commercial real estate firm with offices in Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, has announced the hiring of Wilson Purcell as Senior Associate with the Capital Markets platform that specializes in investment sales of suburban office, industrial/flex, and neighborhood retail assets. Mr. Purcell brings more than five years of financial analysis, project management, and market research experience to this new position and previously functioned as Senior Consultant for Deloitte Consulting. Earlier this year, the Edge Capital Markets Group selected Cristine Kleine as Senior Director.
In his new role, Mr. Purcell will support the Edge Capital Markets team with a variety of functions to help execute successful sale and acquisition outcomes for its clients. His role will be to perform asset underwriting, valuation analysis, market research, project management and new business development. His diverse background in real estate consulting will enable him to leverage his institutional client service experience and corporate project management skills.
Mr. Purcell also worked for JLL as an Analyst supporting the Public Institutions team. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Davidson College.
“Wilson represents a key addition to our Capital Markets team as he will significantly enhance our in-house capabilities and immediately raise the level of service to our clients,” explained Joe Friedman, Partner of Capital Markets at Edge. “We continue to attract high-energy talent to our team that have demonstrated the ability to achieve transaction success in multiple asset classes during challenging economic conditions. Wilson helps round out our growing team as we anticipate an extremely active 2021.
“The regional economy remains exceptionally strong and we believe this will translate to the return of sale transaction activity that will be aided by pent-up demand and increased federal government spending under the new administration,” Friedman added.
