Sands Investment Group Announces Thomas Gorman as Managing Director of New Philadelphia Office

Philadelphia, PA (September 11, 2019) — Sands Investment Group (SIG) is pleased to announce that Thomas Gorman has joined the firm as managing director of the new Philadelphia office slated to open in October 2019.

Gorman comes to SIG from CBRE, where he served as the senior vice president, specializing in sourcing debt for top investment clients. He brings a wealth of net lease investment and business-building experience to Sands Investment Group having also held former positions at Marcus & Millichap as a regional manager, managing their Washington D.C. office and launching their Boston office. He will play an integral role in launching SIG’s new office in Philadelphia, as well as building a team to serve the commercial real estate opportunity in the Northeast United States.

“Sands Investment Group is a well-positioned company in the net lease sales space. One of the number one things I like about SIG is the culture that Chris Sands has built. It’s truly collaborative and the attitude of working together and being a team is genuine — not just lip service,” Gorman said. He added, “I like situations where I can have a significant impact on the company and help others grow, Sands is perfectly poised for this type of growth.”

The new Philadelphia office is the firm’s first location in the region and will provide net lease investment services to clients from Washington, D.C. north, up to Boston, creating a footprint in the Northeast for Sands Investment Group

“The Northeast US is one of the densest places in the country for population and development, and there’s a large swath of untapped territory and clients who haven’t had the chance to interact with the firm,” Gorman said. “While we do business nationwide, there’s no substitute for being in a location where you can meet in person and interact regularly to best serve clients.” 

“We always take a great deal of time when we’re making strategic hires to ensure our culture remains in tact and the case was no different with Tom this go-around. From his experience to his character, we know he’s the right person to lead our new office and expand our footprint into the Northeast and couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on board,” said Chris Sands.
