CHICAGO—Hotel industry veteran Wes Tiner has joined Marcus & Millichap’s National Hospitality Group (NHG) in the firm’s Nashville office, according to Gregory A. LaBerge, the NHG’s national director. Tiner brings more than 20 years of industry experience to Marcus & Millichap, and was most recently a VP with Centennial Commercial Real Estate Company (formerly Grubb & Ellis). Joining Tiner in the Nashville office is Paul Blackburn, another commercial real estate veteran with seven years of experience.
“Adding Wes and Paul to our already industry-leading team of national hospitality specialists in a key market like Nashville further solidifies our strategic focus to provide our clients maximum value in solving their investment objectives,” LaBerge said in a statement.
