PHOENIX, ARIZONA (May 2, 2023) – NAI Horizon CEO and Principal Terry Martin-Denning announced that Jeffrey Garza Walker, MRED, MBA, has joined the firm as an Executive Vice President and will focus his advisory and brokerage work on industrial and corporate services.
Garza Walker will divide his time representing tenants and landlords in Metro Phoenix and throughout the U.S. as well as investors and corporate occupiers in Mexico and numerous Latin American countries, where he already has a client base and network of relationships.
His transactional experience includes more than 150 million square feet of industrial property in the U.S., 50 million square feet of industrial services in Mexico, and more than 50 million square feet of industrial leasing, acquisition, and disposition in Latin America.
“Our entire network is perfect for a broker like Jeffrey Garza Walker. Even though he’s already been extremely successful in his career, our platform will take him to the next level,” said Lane Neville, Executive Vice President and Principal with NAI Horizon.
Neville serves on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of NAI Horizon’s parent company, Horizon Real Estate Group, Inc., a broker-owned company. Neville was instrumental in recruiting Garza Walker to NAI Horizon, an affiliate of NAI Global, with more than 300 offices worldwide, including 15 offices in Mexico and Latin America associated with NAI Mexico – one of the leading CRE services firms in both regions.
In addition to serving clients in Mexico and Latin America, Garza Walker assists with their real estate requirements in the U.S. He is leading the initiative to incorporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) best practices into existing and new supply chains that companies use to source, assemble, manufacture, and deliver goods and equipment to businesses and consumers.
Garza Walker joins NAI Horizon from another brokerage firm. He previously served as a corporate manager with APL Logistics Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kintetsu World Express Inc., a Japan-based freight forwarding and transportation company. He ran the firm’s North American, Mexico, and Latin American supply chain management services business.
“Moving to NAI Horizon could not have come at a better time in my career – with my corporate background in logistics and enduring relationships in Mexico and Latin America, my long-standing advocacy and direct experience in reshoring and nearshoring the supply chain and, more recently, connectivity to companies that are part of the supply chain solution to ESG. I feel like I’ll be able to increase my business tenfold with NAI Horizon,” Garza Walker said.
A frequent guest speaker and presenter on supply chain management issues and solutions, Garza Walker, will be speaking at the upcoming Area Development Consultants Forum in Detroit June 5-7. He will then be in New Jersey as a guest speaker at a NAIOP (National Association of Industrial and Office Properties) conference.
Garza Walker is very community oriented and serves on many councils and boards, including the Arizona State University (ASU) Real MRED Real Estate Council, Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce (Chairman of the Board), U.S. Green Building Council/Arizona Chapter, Phoenix Sister Cities, and Global Chamber® Phoenix.
He earned a Master’s of Real Estate Development at Arizona State University, a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix, and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Montana State University in Bozeman. Garza Walker is a U.S. Armed Forces veteran.
