Kemp Conrad, SIOR, Dual Designation

Principal

Kemp Conrad is Principal of Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Advisors, LLC – the leading tenant and corporate advisory firm in the mid-south region. 

 Kemp is consistently one of the top brokers in the region and his Global Portfolio Solutions Team handles the real estate needs of long term clients with a global footprint of over 45MM SF. Over his 18 year career, Kemp has completed transactions in 35 states and 23 countries. He has also completed a wide range of strategic planning and transaction assignments with a focus on creative deal-making focused on benchmark and metric creation and measurement. In both 2015 and 2016, he was named one of the top 20 industrial brokers in the country by Cushman & Wakefield, a designation given annually to the top three percent of Cushman & Wakefield brokers based on production.

In spring 2018, Kemp earned the “Culture of Oneness” award, an accolade for his selfless service to Cushman & Wakefield’s industrial platform. Kemp is the only broker to have won this prestigious award twice.

Prior to joining the firm he was the Memphis City Leader for Trammell Crow Co. Kemp’s unique position brings the tenant and landlord perspective to the table for his clients. As a collaborator internally, Kemp serves on the Cushman & Wakefield Industrial & Supply Chain Executive Committee. This committee consists of only sixteen C&W brokers in the U.S. out of 600+, and he is the only member from an Alliance firm on the committee. The committee serves as the Board of Directors for the Americas industrial platform. He also holds a SIOR, dual designation for both office and industrial, which only 152, or 5%, of SIOR designees hold out of over 3,100.

Kemp was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and earned his MBA from the Owen School of Management at Vanderbilt University. His BA is from Rhodes. Kemp served on the Memphis City Council for eleven years, representing half of the city – approximately 350,000 people. He was elected unanimously by his peers as Vice Chairman of the body in 2015, and as Chairman in 2016 and 2019. He is also a past member of the Board of Trustees of the National Civil Rights Museum.
