Sacramento’s top economic development organization said Monday it has hired a commercial real estate expert from the Bay Area to help recruit businesses.
The Greater Sacramento Area Economic Council said Neal Best, formerly with Cushman Wakefield in San Francisco, will be the Sacramento organization’s vice president of business development. Among other things, Best will help lead trade missions over the next year to six key U.S. markets: New York, Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, Atlanta, Los Angeles and the Bay Area.
A native of Northern Ireland, Best was working in real estate in London before moving to the United States in 2013.
“He has in-depth real estate knowledge with many connections in the Bay Area that will help move Sacramento forward,” said Greater Sacramento’s president and chief executive, Barry Broome, in a prepared statement.
