PhoenixMart HIres Tom Johnston as Senior VP of Leasing and Sales

Tom Johnston

Johnston comes to PhoenixMart as a 16-year veteran of the commercial real estate services industry in Phoenix, Arizona. He spent those 16 years with Cushman & Wakefield where he was a top performing broker before taking over the Market Leader role in 2006. Under his leadership, the Cushman & Wakefield Phoenix office more than doubled the number of its brokerage professionals and expanded its practice to include retail and healthcare. His team was awarded NAIOP’s Brokerage Firm of the Year Award in 2009, 2010 & 2011, and Tom was also the recipient of the 2012 NAIOP Principal of the Year Award.

Tim Lawless, President of the Arizona chapter of National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP) states, “Tom Johnston was recently named our most outstanding associate volunteer of the year and has been a tremendous asset for both the industry and our organization. We are thrilled he is staying in the region and his talents will be utilized in selling PhoenixMart.  We wish him every success in his new position.”  Chairman John DiVall of the NAIOP agrees saying, “I could not be more thrilled that my good friend Tom Johnston will be working with Steve Betts on the Phoenix Mart project. I’ve done a lot of business with TJ and his various teams while he was at Cushman Wakefield and additionally while we’ve been co Board of Directors members with NAIOP. TJ’s background and work ethic make him uniquely qualified to work on this exciting project and I wish him nothing but the best.”

“Through his Trends Day leadership and Arizona District Council Management Committee involvement, Tom continues to be instrumental in moving ULI’s mission forward in creating better places throughout Arizona,” states Gregory Bielli, Chairman and President of the Western Region of the Urban Land Institute, “I have no doubt he will bring this same energy, knowledge, enthusiasm, and dedication to this leadership position with PhoenixMart.”

Tom remains an active member of many real estate industry groups. He is a NAIOP Board Member, a ULI Advisory Board Member, and the 2013 & 2014 Trends Day Co-Chair. He has a B.A. in economics from Columbia University.
