Commercial real estate firm Newmark Group, Inc. has added new talent to its top leadership.

Industry veteran Conor Lalor has joined Newmark as president, head of Retail Capital Markets for North America. Newmark has also hired Kyle Minter as senior managing director, working closely with Lalor to focus on retail investment sales, recapitalizations, and financings across North America. Lalor will be based in Atlanta and Minter in Dallas.

Lalor will work closely with Newmark’s Retail Capital Markets leadership team, including Pete Bethea in San Diego, Bill Bauman in Los Angeles, Nick Bicardo in San Francisco, Matt Adler in Washington D.C., and Tom Dobrowski in New York, among others.

Together, they will focus on the sale, financing and recapitalization of mixed-use assets and portfolios, expanding Newmark’s capital markets business in the U.S. and beyond. Lalor’s team will also collaborate closely with chairman of global retail Mark Masinter and the broader retail services team to advise clients on the latest retail trends.

“As Newmark’s retail business continues to experience meaningful growth, and with our commitment to building a high-performing team, this strategic expansion enhances our ability to meet evolving market demands and deliver exceptional results,” said Masinter. “We are excited to partner with Conor, among the best in the industry, and leverage our combined expertise to further drive our clients' success."

Before joining Newmark, Lalor spent more than 12 years at Eastdil Secured, where he was a managing director and led the firm’s retail business across the Sunbelt and eastern U.S. His teams have led many of the highest-profile retail and mixed-use transactions over the past decade and transacted over $25 billion in sales, financings and recapitalizations.

“Conor's experience and track record of success make him an invaluable addition to our firm,” said Chad Lavender, president of Capital Markets for North America. “His arrival marks a milestone for Newmark as we bolster our presence in the retail sector, reinforcing our focus on delivering top-tier services to our clients. Conor’s collaborative mentality, thought leadership and approach will further amplify the synergies with our investment sales advisors, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the firm.”
