“So it is kind of a blessing that I ultimately get to reconnect with him years later. What's really exciting is Harrison and Mark combined now with Tim Strange and his firm really are blending similar cultures who have very complementary capabilities,” Sheinkop said. “And then we can layer on top of that and make them that much more global, with a big New York operation, a big corporate services operation, capital markets capabilities.

“Having someone so strong in the region — in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, our Arkansas partners are here — just makes us that much more relevant when we compete for our customers' business.”

He added, and this is important to hear, I think, since Newmark Grubb Levy Strange Beffort is locally owned:

“By the way, it's not that we just let anybody be an affiliate partner, right? We prefer to own the companies that we associate with, but in some instances it often makes sense to align yourself with companies who want to retain local identity, like this one, and then bolt on to a larger platform.”

Attachment secured.
