Tydlaska joins HFF as a senior managing director focused on institutional office investment sales throughout the Greater Los Angeles region and will also assist in growing HFF’s business in other primary markets on the West Coast.
Tydlaska has been involved in the listing and sale of more than $15 billion of transactions throughout the West Coast, with a primary focus on office product. Todd has been involved with numerous high-profile assignments including the disposition of the Amazon.com Headquarters Campus ($1.15 billion), Russell Investments Center ($480 million), 1918 8th Avenue and 818 Stewart ($480 million), Bravern Office Commons ($410 million), Parsons Campus ($320 million), Advanta Office Commons ($240 million), 400 S. Hope Street ($236 million), The Campus at Playa Vista ($219 million), 1055 West Seventh Street ($184 million), and Sony Pictures Plaza ($159 million). Tydlaska joins HFF from CBRE, where he was most recently a senior vice president.
Tydlaska is the 27th producer to join HFF’s West Coast team since first quarter 2013. Los Angeles has been a significant growth market for the firm with other recent additions including multi-housing and industrial investment sales professionals as well as several debt producers. These key hires have come through recruiting and organic growth, and are complemented by strong additions made in the support functions bringing headcount to a record high in the office. Since the beginning of 2014, HFF has added 95 associates across the country, increasing the total number of associates nationally to a new high for the firm.
“HFF continues to build momentum in the western United States. During the first quarter of 2015, the firm closed more than $4 billion in capital markets transactions on the West Coast, representing a 132 percent increase compared to first quarter 2013,” said Kevin MacKenzie, a senior managing director and co-head of HFF’s Los Angeles and Orange County offices. “HFF is strategically growing its West Coast investment sales team, along with the debt and equity placement teams, with a goal of building out the full platform of services and property specializations in each location. The main focus is on building the brand one person at a time with best-in-class professionals who share the same guiding principles as our firm – client-focused, team-oriented, hard-working individuals who are leaders in their markets.”
