A longtime commercial real estate leader credited with growing Stream Realty Partners’ Dallas industrial leasing team by more than 100% in three years has been named a Partner.
Managing Director Matt Dornak will continue to oversee day-to-day industrial activities for Stream’s Dallas-Fort Worth office alongside Managing Director and Partner Ryan Boozer. He joined Stream, a national commercial real estate firm offering an integrated platform of services, as an Analyst in 2011 and ascended over the last 12 years to Associate, Vice President, and Managing Director before being named Partner.
“Stream is a special place with a unique culture and extraordinary group of people who have taught me so much over the past decade,” Dornak said. “I’ve been given so many opportunities to grow within new markets, teams, and business lines. I’m grateful to work at such an amazing company and honored to be named a Partner.”
During his tenure at Stream, Dornak has helped increase the Dallas-Fort Worth industrial portfolio by more than 30 million square feet. He is credited with building a successful South Dallas industrial leasing team from scratch and establishing relationships with countless new clients.
Dornak graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Dartmouth College and spent one year as a Paralegal at an Austin law firm before starting as an analyst at Stream DFW. He said he was drawn to Stream’s competitive environment and team and entrepreneurial mentality.
“After joining Stream, I quickly understood what it took to succeed in the industry,” Dornak said. “It’s about discipline and a dedication to building and maintaining strong relationships. Coming to work with such a passionate and hard-working group of individuals makes it instinctual and a lot of fun.”
Blake Kendrick, Chief Operating Officer and Partner, noted the DFW industrial group has become the largest business unit within Stream under Dornak’s leadership.
“Matt has done a phenomenal job of representing Stream, training and elevating our people, and growing our revenue, portfolio size, and talent,” Kendrick said. “Not only is he a very valuable asset to our business, but more importantly, he is a great person that always represents our core values of smart, honest, nice, and passionate. I am extremely excited for Matt and honored to call him a partner.”
Dornak said one of his favorite quotes that he lives by and perfectly represents his time at Stream is: “When hard work becomes fun, success follows.”
