Harris brings 14 years of mortgage banking experience and has closed more than 1,900 transactions totaling more than $2.9 billion. In his new role with Meridian, Harris will be originating debt and equity transactions nationally, focusing on triple-net leased property owners and investors.

He joins Meridian from Marcus & Millichap where he was ranked as a “Top Five Broker” nationally from 2007 through 2011 and a “Top Loan Originator” for three consecutive years from 2008 to 2010.

“Many companies seek methods to monetize their long-term investments without losing control of their real estate. Sale-leasebacks are a solution that allows the company to continue to run their business without interruption,” said Harris. “I am proud to join the dynamic team at Meridian and I look forward to leveraging my extensive triple-net lease and sale-leaseback expertise to enhance Meridian’s longstanding tradition of excellence and drive market share."
