Kidder Mathews is bringing in industry leader Jim Bowles to head the company's growth.

Starting in January, Bowles will hold the new title of president of Kidder Mathews' Brokerage Services Division, according to a press release.

Kidder Mathews said it is the largest commercial real estate brokerage in Seattle and Portland, and it is expanding in California where it already has three offices.

Kidder Mathews now has offices in San Francisco, Redwood Shores and Silicon Valley, and plans to open offices in San Diego and the East Bay in 2015.

Bowles has held senior management positions with Colliers International, Cushman & Wakefield and CBRE.

Kidder Mathews says its platform is built on a flat and efficient management structure, with commission splits that are more favorable to brokers.

Kidder Mathews has more than 450 employees in nine offices in Washington, Oregon and California. The firm does $2.9 billion in transactions, manages 30 million square feet of space, and conducts 1,300 appraisals annually.
