Matthew Harrell has been named new CEO of Franklin Street.

Matthew Harrell Takes Over Franklin Street’s CEO Position

Tampa, FL-based Franklin Street has appointed Matthew Harrell to the firm’s CEO position.

Harrell has been with Franklin Street since 2009, most recently serving as chief revenue officer and prior as managing Director of Franklin Street’s insurance services division. He has served on Franklin Street’s board of directors since 2012.

As CEO, Harrell will leverage his experience growing national business and developing top-producing teams to implement a national market expansion strategy. In launching this endeavor, Franklin Street is actively seeking recruitment and acquisition opportunities in high-growth U.S. markets with an initial focus on Dallas, Houston, Austin, Nashville and Charlotte.

Harrell will also oversee the continued growth of Franklin Street’s collaborative, cross-functional business lines – including capital markets, tenant and landlord representation, insurance services, project management and property management – in both existing and new markets.

Harrell succeeds Andrew Wright, who founded Franklin Street in 2006 and will remain chairman of its board of directors.
