Added to Philadelphia office are Ryan Ade (from Wells Fargo) and James Conley (from Marcus & Millichap) who have joined as managing directors focused on debt and equity placement deals. HFF (HF) opened the Philadelphia office in December with four employees.

Pittsburgh office chief Mark Popovich (who is overseeing the expansion): "HFF has waited a long time to have a physical presence in the Philadelphia market and we could not be more pleased with how quickly and efficiently we've been able to gain a foothold in this market and grow the office."
