Gregory Meyer and Jason Gibson have acquired Cincinnati-based retail brokerage firm Anchor Associates from Charles Townsend, founder and principal of the company.

Meyer and Gibson have been members of the Anchor Associates team collectively for more than 22 years.

The transition took effect on Jan. 1, when the new partners assumed ownership and management of the firm.

Townsend will now focus on real estate development, and continues to work with select retail clients.

Meyer joined the company in 2005, and has closed transactions totaling more than 8 million square feet. He has represented clients such as Lowe’s, Old Navy and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Before joining Anchor Associates in 2013, Gibson worked for Regency Centers in major Midwest and East Coast markets. His recent projects have included leasing services for Rockwood Commons, Rockwood Pavilion, Voice of America Center and Oakley Station in Cincinnati.
