New Assignments and High Volume of Transactions Lead Commercial Real Estate Firm to Expand Further
Wolf Commercial Real Estate (WCRE) is pleased to announce the expansion and relocation of its Center City Philadelphia office, which includes the addition of three new team members serving southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. WCRE quickly outgrew its original Philadelphia office at 1601 Market Street, and has moved to 3 Logan Square, at 1717 Arch Street.
The new team members are Kevin Coleman, who joins as chief sales officer and executive vice president, and new sales associates Tyler Martin and Mike Scanzano. They join a team that includes several well-known business leaders with deep roots in the city. Among them are Brian Propp, director of strategic relationships, Tony Banks, vice president, Anthony Mannino, senior consultant, and sales associates Mitchell Russell and Joseph Nassib. Each brings a unique skill set, along with energy, passion, and the signature WCRE commitment to the community. Managing principal Jason Wolf and vice president and principal Chris Henderson, also assist the Philadelphia team.
“We’ve been serving numerous clients in and around Center City for the past few years, and we have fully committed to expanding our presence here,” said Henderson. “This move will create more opportunities for our Philly team to network and collaborate with clients and partners, and to deepen our commitment to community initiatives.”

Kevin Coleman is a 15-year industry veteran. His role will include sales management and leadership, and business development throughout the region, with a heavy focus on central New Jersey. Coleman will also play an active part in the recruitment of all new team members.
Previously, Coleman served as a vice president of advisory services with Transwestern. During this time, he had the opportunity to work on behalf of office and industrial tenants, investors, and developers. From 2010-2016, Coleman served as director with Colliers International, working out of the Princeton, New Jersey office. He represented national, regional, and local companies with office, industrial, and healthcare requirements. Among many accomplishments, he was instrumental in helping to grow the Princeton office with the addition of a team of brokers. On joining WCRE, Coleman said,
“Jason has worked very hard to build a strong brand in the region, and I am excited for the opportunity to leverage my diverse background to help the team grow to the next level of performance.”
Tyler Martin is one of the firm’s two new sales associates. Martin is a former new business development representative in the fleet management industry who will be a valuable partner to clients seeking expertise in development and understanding the potential of a space. He will work closely with WCRE’s sales professionals to generate new business relationships and create opportunities for clients in Philadelphia and the suburbs.
Before graduating a year early from Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida, Martin was a member of the NCAA lacrosse team. He has continued his education by pursuing his MBA with a concentration in Finance at Saint Joseph’s University. His anticipated graduation is in May 2019.
In addition to his professional activities, Martin is an attackman for the Hungarian National Lacrosse Team. He competed with the team in the 2018 World Lacrosse Championships in Israel.

Scanzano is an entrepreneur and former professional athlete. He played six years of professional baseball, ending his career in 2010 with the Camden Riversharks. After baseball, he took a sales position with the Southern Illinois Miners, an independent minor league team. Since 2015 Scanzano is also the co-owner of Scanzano Sports in Cherry Hill, a baseball training center. He is responsible for marketing and business development, building relationships in the community, and overall management.

Tony Banks will focus on expanding the Wolf Commercial Real Estate’s footprint in Philadelphia and the Philly suburbs
Wolf Commercial Real Estate (WCRE) is pleased to announce the hiring of Tony Banks, who joins the firm as a Vice President. Tony brings a unique combination of commercial real estate and high finance experience to WCRE. Banks brings nearly a decade of experience in commercial real estate, representing local and national retail tenants, landlords, community development groups, investors, and startups in the Philadelphia area. Prior to his work in real estate, he was a trading analyst on the floor of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange for more than ten years, where he worked with some of the more prominent firms on the NYSE.
Tony’s role at WCRE will include a focus on expanding the firm’s client base in Pennsylvania, especially in and around Philadelphia.

Banks was most recently an associate at Legend Properties, where he focused on sales and leasing, landlord and tenant representation, and investment sales.
Having recently marked its fifth anniversary, WCRE is now well established in Southern New Jersey, and leadership sees growth in the Pennsylvania markets as a natural next step. The firm has added two new key team members on the account service side every year since its founding.

He is on the board of the Chestnut Hill Youth Sports Club, and is a member of the Watertower Recreation Center Advisory Council, among others.
