Velocity Retail Group announces that Phil Kwiecinski has joined the firm as Director of Operations and for its affiliated development services company Accelerated Development Services.

Kwiecinski, brings his vast experience as a 10-year veteran of CBRE’s Phoenix office where he was the Senior Operations Manager and most recently the Regional Operations Manager for the states of Arizona, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico. In these roles he was responsible for the oversight of administrative day to day operations for five offices and had full operational accountability for budgeting, forecasting, profit and loss, business planning and human resource functions.

Dave Cheatham, President of Velocity Retail Group commented, “We are excited to have someone with Phil’s experience join us on the operations side. He will focus on fine-tuning our client services and bringing this to a level not obtainable to most retail brokerage firms of our size.”

Phil is a long-time colleague with a proven track record in his field of expertise. We worked together for several years managing the Phoenix CBRE office. Having him at Velocity Retail will enhance our ability to provide the highest level of service across all of our business platforms. We are pleased to be able to work together again,” said Greg Coxon, Chief Operating Officer.

The core group at Velocity Retail was with CBRE until April of 2005, they have worked together for many years. Bringing the experience of a larger firm into the client-centric environment at Velocity Retail Group and Accelerated Development Services is a winning combination on many levels.

Having spent many years at larger firms I am looking forward to applying those principals to a smaller innovative environment that can react quickly to changing market needs,” said Kwiecinski. “I am excited to be together again with my former associates. They are a successful group that have fine-tuned their process and focus solely on serving the client,” he added.
