An investment sales team has jumped ship from Colliers International to Avison Young.

The Maling-Barnes team, comprised of brothers Chris and David Maling and Patrick Barnes, have joined Avison Young as principals of its Downtown Los Angeles office. In their new roles, they will focus on expanding the firm’s investment sales portfolio across retail, office and industrial sectors. The Maling brothers were executive vice presidents of retail services at Colliers, while Barnes served as senior vice president of investment sales.

Jim Linn, an industrial specialist, joined Newmark Knight Frank as an executive managing director. In his new capacity, Linn will be working alongside Bret Hardy and Kevin Shannon. The industrial market veteran was the founding partner and president of the west region of Talos Capital, an industrial real estate firm that closed more than $15 billion in deals during his tenure. His previous gigs include roles at CenterPoint Properties Trust, Grubb & Ellis, Industrial Presidents Council and Schneider Commercial Real Estate.

Newmark also promoted John McMillan of the firm’s South Bay office from executive managing director to vice chairman. McMillan, who joined the firm just three years ago, leads a team of partners that include Jeff Sanita, Danny Williams and Greg Stumm. Together, they closed $315 million in transactions in 2018 alone. The industrial broker worked at Cushman & Wakefield before he moved over to Newmark.

Developer Lincoln Property Company hired Eric Roseman as its new vice president of innovation and partnerships. Roseman will lead the firm into new endeavors, such as tenant engagement software, and spearhead partnerships between the firm and startup companies. Prior to joining LPC West, the West Coast arm of Lincoln Property, he worked at CBRE as director of West Coast digital sales.

CBRE recently promoted Philip Voorhees to vice chairman at the firm. Voorhees, who has been at the firm since 2001, heads the National Retail Partners West Team. He and his team have sold more than $5 billion in retail assets since 2012. Based in Newport Beach, Voorhees works with sellers primarily in western states like California, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Hawaii.
