As the youngest Market Leader in the country, he was in charge of revenue generation, marketing and strategy. Before Cushman & Wakefield, he spent twelve (12) years working for Maguire Properties and Thomas Properties, two of the largest REIT’s in downtown Los Angeles. Lalo handled almost 12 million square feet of leasing duties and he negotiated over 200 transactions totaling over 2.5 million square feet on behalf of the ownership.

He demonstrates vast experience when understanding operating expense audits, real estate finance and the lease document required to operate in a Class A tower. As a bilingual Spanish speaker, Lalo started his career in Cushman & Wakefield’s Mexico City office leasing Torre Mayor, Latin America’s tallest institutional office tower. He is heavily involved in the community by serving on the Board of Trustees on the Orthopaedic Institute for Children and Loyola High School’s Latino Alumni Association.
