Brennan Group Promotes Two to the Position of Vice President

The Brennan Investment Group has promoted Matt Kay and Lucas McCarthy, formerly senior associates, to the position of VP.

Kay’s new responsibilities will focus on single tenant net lease and national portfolio acquisitions throughout the United States.  In his previous role, Kay assisted Brennan’s CIO, Scott McKibben, in the underwriting of over $2.6 billion in transactions, totaling approximately 50 million square feet in over 20 different states.

McCarthy’s new responsibilities include sourcing single tenant net lease investments across the Midwest region, in addition to uncovering value-add and development opportunities in the Minneapolis and Milwaukee markets.  

In his previous role for Brennan, McCarthy assisted Brennan’s managing principal of the Midwest, Kevin Brennan, in underwriting more than $1.6 billion in transactions across the entire Midwest.

“One of Brennan’s most important roles is the stewardship of young professionals into great investment practitioners,” said McKibben. “Matt and Luke have worked hard from the moment they joined us, learning our industry and developing a competency for the Brennan way of underwriting and investing.  We have no doubt that they will succeed in their new roles.”

Both will work out of Brennan’s Rosemont, IL headquarters.
