Chicago-based Baker Tilly (FY19 net revenue of $754.8 million) has expanded its real estate valuation and advisory service offerings by hiring managing director Brent Maier, senior manager Kevin Secrist and manager Nicholas Palkovic.
“We are continuously looking for ways in which we can enhance and protect our clients’ value,” says transaction advisory services practice leader and Chicago OMP Tom Walker. “The addition of Brent and his team will offer our clients clear insight on their strategic growth plans.”
Team leader Maier will direct the firm’s newly expanded suite of real estate valuation and advisory offerings, which include overall portfolio consulting and real estate acquisition due diligence. Maier has more than 20 years of experience providing real estate users, owners and investors with valuation and advisory services for real estate entities, property portfolios and complex developments. He has completed numerous assignments of large portfolios for multi-national and global engagements, having worked throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Asia.
Maier, Secrist and Palkovic join Baker Tilly from investment bank Houlihan Lokey, where they were key members of the real estate valuation and advisory services practice in Chicago.
