Kevin McGowan is the founder of McGowan Corporate Real Estate Advisors. McGowan is a Broker of Record in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Massachusetts, Idaho, Utah, Ohio, and Maine.

Since 2004, McGowan has been an active industrial broker earning both the SIOR and CCIM designations. McGowan guides corporations nationwide to make key decisions for their distribution locations. This work was initially local to the Lehigh Valley and New Jersey but has grown to serve clients nationally and internationally. McGowan founded the SIOR Independent Broker Group in 2011 providing his firm with an international network of top quality broker partners. McGowan is a Fellow of IAMC (Industrial Asset Management Council), and the SIOR representative on the joint IAMC/SIOR Research Committee. McGowan is a frequent panelist and keynote speaker at national industrial real estate conferences and a past expert witness on the topic of industrial real estate. McGowan is unique in that he has a strong consulting background (Price Waterhouse Consulting) and a deep understanding of finance and corporate strategy (Sanford Bernstein Institutional Equity Research Sales, MBA NYU Stern). In 2013, McGowan decided to start his own firm to blend this skillset with a market that was growing quickly and needed providers that could execute major mission critical transactions that were key to the operations of his clients. McGowan has worked on many projects with various users including manufacturers, food companies, e-commerce, consumer products, and 3PLs. McGowan has been involved in hundreds of transactions that have included land deals, industrial and office leases, and the sale of many leased investments.
