EL SEGUNDO, Calif – Matthews Retail Advisors™, a leading commercial real estate brokerage company that specializes in retail investment properties, announces the appointment of Radoslav (Raddie) Zlatkov as its Chief Financial and Operating Officer (CFOO). Zlatkov joined the firm in July and reports to Kyle Matthews, the company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
“We are excited to have Raddie join the team. Throughout his career he has specialized in accelerating and managing fast-growing businesses, which makes him uniquely suited to help drive our ongoing success. As we continue to execute at the highest level for our clients, we look forward to Raddie’s contribution in managing the financial and operational strength of Matthews Retail Advisors,” says Matthews of the new CFOO.
Zlatkov brings more than a decade of financial management and operational experience. As Director of Finance for Keurig Green Mountain, Inc., he helped grow the company from $500 million to over $4.5 billion. As Senior Director of Finance for SharkNinja, a private Boston-based consumer products company, he managed budgets of more than $1.5 billion. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business with a dual concentration in Investments & Financial Markets and Real Estate Finance.
In his role at Matthews Retail Advisors, Zlatkov will provide leadership to drive profitable growth, head strategic planning, manage treasury, and oversee financial analysis and underwriting. In addition, he will be responsible for directing business operations.
“I’m thrilled to join the executive team at Matthews Retail Advisors, which has seen tremendous success. I look forward to helping deliver profitable growth for our retail clients as the business expands into new services and grows into new territories,” Zlatkov says.
Zlatkov rounds out the company’s leadership team, which includes Kyle Matthews, Chairman and CEO; Patrick Toomey, Managing Partner; Chad Kurz, Managing Partner; Jordan Uttal, Managing Partner; and Eric Boyd, Chief Marketing Officer. Zlatkov’s hire follows a strong executional performance for clients in the first half of 2015, with a more than double year-over-year increase in revenue and over 130 transactions closed. This is an acceleration of growth since the company transitioned out of Colliers International earlier in the year. The addition of Zlatkov brings the company to 55 members, including partners, executives, agents, financial analysts, transaction managers and marketing staff.
