16 May 2017

Savills Studley, the leading commercial real estate services firm specializing in tenant representation, is pleased to announce the addition of 35-year veteran real estate advisor John Hammett to the firm’s Denver office. Hammett will lead a new Denver-based project management team with experienced commercial real estate services professionals J.T. Hammett and Matt Hammett. This new project management team is the latest addition to Savills Studley’s fast-growing Denver office, which has added an additional 16 experienced Denver-based real estate advisors since the start of 2017.

“As the result of a growing and multi-talented workforce, diverse business community and high quality of life, Denver has become a global destination for international space users and investors,” said Savills Studley Executive Vice President, Director and Central Region Lead Rick Schuham. “To meet this demand, we have assembled a market-leading team in Denver over the last year, capable of providing the highest quality service to clients in Colorado and across the globe. John’s project management experience and skillset is unparalleled, his reputation is sterling and we are thrilled to have him on our team. John and his team share our vision and they are a perfect fit for our culture”

Before coming to Savills Studley, Hammett was a Senior Vice President and Senior Project Manager at the Denver Office of Cushman & Wakefield for eight years and a Senior Project Manager and Principal at Cresa Denver from 2001 to 2009. Hammett has consulted and managed, on average, over 500,000 square feet and $15 million in managed construction cost annually and has experience on projects across the United States and Latin America.

“Savills Studley has a reputation for professionalism, an entrepreneurial spirt and an outstanding record of client service,” said Hammett. “This is in line with our team’s values and the expectations from our clients. I am extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with the exceptional team here in Denver. The group that has come together represents the best in the industry.”

J.T. Hammett was most recently a Project Manager within Cushman & Wakefield's Project Management Group. He joined the firm in 2011 and previously acted as Business Analyst within the firm’s Portfolio Management Group.

Matt Hammett has worked as an independent contractor for commercial real estate services and energy production clients since 2014. During this time, he provided project management, transaction management, strategic planning, accounting and relocation management services.

The aggressive expansion in the Denver market comes in line with Savills Studley’s recent acquisitions of a number of offices specializing in tenant representation, including groups in Orange County, Charlotte, Seattle, San Jose, Palo Alto and Toronto over the last 24 months. In addition to Denver, the firm has also recently hired several top-performing teams in New York, Dallas, Phoenix and Austin.
