Newmark Hires Tenant Representation Experts, Hobbs and Lyon, in Dallas Office

Dallas, TX (Aug. 16, 2021) — Newmark announces the addition of market-leading office tenant representation experts, Executive Managing Director Scott Hobbs and Director Kim Lyon, to the company’s Dallas office. With more than two decades of combined commercial real estate (CRE) experience, Hobbs and Lyon specialize in tenant representation, supporting major companies’ office real estate needs in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex through negotiated renewals, relocations, builds-to-suit, subleases, expansions and building purchases.

Hobbs has advised some of the largest names in commercial airlines, technology companies, non-profits, financial institutions and multinational electronics, telecommunications and apparel companies.

“Bringing on Scott and Kim–with their expertise in completing complex real estate transactions for the biggest companies in Dallas–will elevate our tenant representative platform in Texas and beyond,” said Newmark Executive Vice President and Texas Market Leader Ran Holman. “We are excited to welcome them both.”

Hobbs and Lyon were formerly with Cushman & Wakefield where they managed the acquisition, renegotiation and disposition of commercial space exclusively for office tenants and corporate users. A decorated veteran, Hobbs was a commissioned Navy SEAL for nearly a decade prior to his 16-year career in CRE. Previously, Lyon held the title of Executive Vice President and a Board of Directors position for i.e.Smart Systems, LLC, where she built and led the company’s sales, marketing and estimating divisions for more than 13 years.

“Having witnessed Newmark’s momentum and growth in Texas, we see this as an incredible opportunity to contribute to the expanding platform in the state and provide our clients with best-in-class service, leveraging Newmark’s resources to address clients’ Dallas-Fort Worth real estate needs,” concluded Hobbs.

The professionals will be based in the company’s Uptown Dallas office, located at 2515 McKinney Avenue.
