Erik Potocek joined A&G in 2020 as a member of the new Financial Reporting & Property Analysis Group. Since that time, he’s worked primarily on A&G’s restaurant industry clients, including a bankruptcy restructuring for NPC International (formerly the largest Pizza Hut and Wendy’s franchisee), along with other lease restructuring projects for City BBQ, TooJays (bankruptcy) and a major national casual dining chain.
On the retail side, he’s worked on lease restructuring projects for clients including Guitar Center (bankruptcy), DSW and Pet Supermarket.
He previously served as a Chicago-based Financial Analyst for Colliers International, where his role included creating cash-flow models in areas such as investment sales and landlord and tenant representation. Prior to that, he was an Investment Sales Associate in the Chicago office of Marcus & Millichap.
Erik is adept at using data analytics and sophisticated financial models to evaluate real estate properties, sites, portfolios, leases and transactions. He has experience in creating proformas for value-add and development opportunities in sectors such as office and industrial, and in uncovering value for clients through means such as lease-abstraction, refinancing, 1031 exchanges and data-driven site-selection methodologies.
Erik earned his bachelor’s degree in real estate and finance from Marquette University in Milwaukee, during which time he interned at Marcus & Millichap, was active in NAIOP and served as president of the commercial real estate club.
