Savanna Names Taps Tishman Speyer Alumnus As VP

Jun 14 2011 | 2:32pm ET

New York-based real estate and private equity firm Savanna has appointed former Tishman Speyer exec Kevin Hoo as vice president.

In his new position, Hoo will manage assets in the firm’s portfolio, oversee and coordinate development, along with leasing and repositioning Savanna properties. He will also be involved in acquisition underwriting, financial modeling and deal structuring.
 
Hoo spent almost three years with Tishman Speyer, most recently as director of commercial leasing and sales with a specific focus on Rockefeller Center and 200 Park Avenue. He began his tenure at Tishman Speyer in the emerging markets group where he was responsible for managing acquisition and development opportunities. Prior to that, he was an associate director in the real estate investment banking group at UBS in Sydney, Australia, where he was responsible for mergers and acquisitions and capital market transactions for REIT clients.
 
“Kevin brings an extensive career in real estate, including relationships with prominent brokers and tenants, and a proven track record of success. In addition, his experience in acquisitions and development of commercial real estate properties makes him a perfect fit for our company as we continue to add to our portfolio. We are very pleased to have Kevin join the Savanna team,” said Christopher Schlank, a Savanna managing partner.
