(MILWAUKEE) — The Boerke Company continues to see their firm expand with expert talent, as 24 year commercial real estate professional Chad Vande Zande joins the Industrial Services team. Vande Zande, the former Senior Vice President of Investments at CenterPoint Properties, joins The Boerke Company as a Partner, where he will team up with recent addition Jeff Hoffman who joined the firm in September 2014.

“It is wonderful to be back at The Boerke Company after the over eight years at CenterPoint Properties, my experience there vastly broadened my real estate skill set and will help me serve the Milwaukee Industrial Marketplace with added perspectives,” said new addition Vande Zande. “The Boerke Company has done a great job of recently attracting a fellow new partner in Jeff Hoffman along with other talent, then combining that with the company’s Alliance with Cushman & Wakefield, which is a strong global real estate company, gives our team the ability to confidently service our clients’ real estate needs either locally, nationally or globally.”

Vande Zande helped in the acquisition of over $750 million of industrial properties in Southeast Wisconsin, Los Angeles, Northern California, Seattle, and Houston, in just under 9 years at CenterPoint. “Having Chad join our firm as partner again, is not something we would have anticipated when he left to pursue another opportunity,” said Andrew Jensen, The Boerke Company’s Managing Partner. “Our industrial real estate team has been an integral part of The Boerke Company since our founding, and Chad collaborated with other individuals in elevating and growing that segment while he was here, and his return provides additional expertise and knowledge we can offer current and future clients, not just in Southeastern Wisconsin, but across the entire Midwest.”

The addition of Vande Zande comes just 6 months after Jeff Hoffman joined the firm as a Partner in the fall of 2014. The Boerke Company also recently announced David Ferron joining the industrial team in February, and the recent hire of Marquette graduate James Raveret to their office team. Raveret is a former Marquette Lacrosse player, and interned in The Boerke Company’s Research and Marketing Department before graduating in December and receiving his real estate license.
