NewQuest Launches Asia-Pacific Platformedit
NewQuest Properties, which has led the introduction and expansion of several Asian brands across Texas, is launching an international division in the Asia-Pacific region. Houston-based development partner Heather Nguyen will lead NewQuest Asia-Pacific Retail, a veteran team of brokers and affiliates in China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam.
“We’ve built strong relationships with overseas companies through the years,” said Nguyen. “We understand their businesses and needs in the U.S. This is an unparalleled growth opportunity for NewQuest and our existing and future clients.”
The expanded team includes Jason Wang, development director; Yoshihide Murata, development senior consultant; and Tokyo-based Kaishu Okada, business development consultant. NewQuest’s new division also includes Naoyuki Kondo, a retail leasing specialist who joined the brokerage firm earlier this year.
Rounding out the Asia-Pacific group are longtime NewQuest brokers SVP Rebecca Le, VP John Nguyen; and associate Grace La.
