Cushman & Wakefield is pleased to announce that Ryan Stevens has joined the firm as Managing Director within its Institutional Capital Markets group. He will serve on the team led by Michael McDonald and Jonathan Napper.
Stevens joins the firm from Lionstone Investments, where he was a vice president in the Real Estate Acquisitions group. He also previously worked in the originations group at Berkadia Commercial Mortgage and as a development associate with Oden Hughes LLC, an Austin-based multifamily developer.
As part of the Institutional Capital Markets team, Stevens will focus primarily on developing client relationships, conducting market tours and closing transactions in the Texas markets. He will split his time between Dallas and Houston.
“We are thrilled to have Ryan join our Capital Markets team in Texas, and I have already received great validation of the addition from our most valued clients,” McDonald said. “I have known Ryan many years and have been impressed with his level of professionalism, knowledge of our industry and sheer desire to excel at everything he does. He joins us from Lionstone, a very well-respected and regarded firm in our industry with phenomenal leadership and culture. Ryan’s disposition and grey matter will allow us to be a better strategic adviser to our clients. He is going to make all of us on the team better individually and as a group. I simply could not think of a better person to join our platform, and I am honored to call him both a dear friend and a partner. The future is most bright.”
During his time at Lionstone Investments, Stevens was a client of McDonald’s and Napper’s, which was part of the reason he was drawn to Cushman & Wakefield.
“As a former client of Mike McDonald and Jonathan Napper, I am energized to join their dynamic team because I know how much they care about the execution of each assignment,” Stevens said. “As a native Texan with institutional investment management experience throughout Texas and the Sunbelt, this post was a dream position to work with clients and colleagues in familiar locales. Our high-growth markets increasingly attract talented workers and institutional capital alike. I am thrilled to join Cushman & Wakefield and look forward to advising clients across the platform.”
Stevens earned a Bachelor of Science in Economics from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
