The Office Brokerage Veteran and Former Major League Soccer All-Star Will Assume Leadership of the Firm’s Tampa Operations
In this new role, Scott will provide leadership for Cushman & Wakefield’s operations in the Tampa Bay market while continuing to serve as one of the region’s most prominent office leasing brokerage professionals. Larry Richey, who has been Cushman & Wakefield’s Tampa Managing Principal for the last 25 years, will continue to oversee the firm’s nine Florida offices as Florida Market Leader, a role he has been in since September 2015.
“I’m honored to help guide Cushman & Wakefield in the Tampa market and continue to nurture the collaborative spirit that helps make our professionals the best in the business,” said Scott. “We have an amazing group of people here who are dedicated to our clients, the community and the company. You couldn’t ask for anything more.”
“Scott was the clear choice to become the next generation of leadership for Cushman & Wakefield in Tampa,” said Larry. “He has proved to be an exceptional leader throughout his career, including the last 10 years with our firm in Tampa. He has unanimous support to lead our Tampa Bay team amongst all of our professionals spanning three generations. We are very excited about our future under Scott’s leadership.”
Scott joined Cushman & Wakefield in 2007 as member of the firm’s Office and Industrial Brokerage Services Group, partnering with Senior Director John Fish. During that span, they have won multiple awards, including Deal of the Year and Client Service Top Performer. Over the course of his career, Scott has negotiated transactions in excess of 5 million square feet.
Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield, Scott spent 12 years playing professional soccer in the United States and abroad. He appeared in 240 Major League Soccer games over a 10 year period, winning an MLS Cup with DC United and twice being named an MLS All Star. Scott retired in 2007 and is one of only six goalkeepers in league history to record more than 1,000 saves and 100 wins.
