(Hartman) sponsor of publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trusts, has hired Matthew Somers as the Sales Director for the Western Region. Somers will oversee sales across 10 states in the western half of the United States. Prior to joining Hartman, Somers served as SVP for BNY Mellon/Dreyfus where he provided leadership to business-critical initiatives across multiple regions. Somers was regularly recognized as a top producer in his sales regions, launched two closed-end IPOs, and generated approximately $2.5 billion in fund sales during his 17-year tenure at the firm. As a seasoned investment management consultant with over 20 years in the wholesaling field, Somers plans to deliver value to Hartman through his capital raising efforts and management of independent broker-dealer and registered investment advisor channels. “Delivering value to Hartman and its investors through in-depth data analyses and strategic sales practices is my goal moving into this new position. I look forward to building new client relations for the firm and creating innovative solutions to produce valuable returns,” said Somers.

Hartman has extensive experience acquiring, owning, managing, and leasing commercial office, retail, light industrial and warehouse properties located in Texas. The cornerstone of our investment strategy includes acquiring a portfolio of real estate properties that offer a blend of current and potential income based on in-place occupancy plus relatively significant potential for growth in income and value from re-tenanting, repositioning, and/or redevelopment.
