PM Realty continues raid
of personnel from rivals

The Hawaii firm lures two top
individuals from Grubb & Ellis

The Hawaii office of PM Realty Group continued its spree of hiring big names from other Hawaii commercial real estate firms with the announcement that it has now captured two key people from competitor Grubb & Ellis/CBI Inc.

They are Matthew Bittick, who was general manager at Grubb & Ellis, and Kyle D. Arsiga, an associate at the firm. Bittick yesterday was named vice president of PM Realty and Arsiga was named an associate.

Both will work out of PM Realty's downtown offices in the City Financial Tower. Bittick is an expert in landlord and tenant representation services and investment services. Arsiga specializes in lease, sublease and investment sales in the retail market.

In October, PM Realty hired industrial-property broker Skip Schuman away from Chaney, Brooks & Co., where he was senior vice president and director of the commercial real estate group.

And in July, PM Realty hired Wendell Brooks III, former vice president of Chaney, Brooks, as a vice president.

PM Realty is a national firm that has been in the real estate business since 1954.

Its Hawaii operations, which had been BetaWest Ltd., were acquired in 1995.

The company, which represents Alii Place, City Financial Tower and other commercial complexes, also handles the real estate needs of Safeway stores, Chevron service stations and other companies.

It has expanded rapidly this year, said Scott Kuklish, senior vice president.
