April 7, 2016 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has hired John Merrill as a senior managing director in its Indianapolis office, where he will co-head the office as well as lead HFF’s investment sales platform in the city. Mr. Merrill will co-head the Indianapolis office with senior managing director David Keller, who leads the debt and equity placement platform for the office.
Mr. Merrill joins HFF from CBRE where he led their Indianapolis office as a managing director/market leader since 2010. He joined the firm to establish its Indianapolis Commercial Investment Properties Group in 1996 and since that time has closed more than $2.5 billion in sales in Indiana and throughout the Midwest. Mr. Merrill also spent time at Duke Realty Corporation and PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is on the Board of Directors at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Indiana Chapter; The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis; BOMA’s Indiana Chapter; and NAIOP’s Indiana Chapter. Mr. Merrill has been recognized by Midwest Real Estate News in the 2015 Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame and is a graduate of Indiana State University.
“Our goal in each office is to build out the full platform of services and property specializations one person at a time, with best-in-class professionals who share the same guiding principles as our firm – client focused, team-oriented, hard-working individuals who are leaders in their market. John has been the person we have focused on and pursued for quite some time and could not be a better match. We look forward to the contributions and growth he will bring to our Indianapolis and Midwest investment sales platform,” said Keller.
“We are really excited about John joining our team and believe he will thrive in our player/coach model where he can drive and execute business throughout the Midwestern markets as an addition to our already strong Midwest investment sales team,” added Matthew Lawton, an executive managing director in HFF’s Chicago office.
