John Garvey

John Garvey is a founding partner of Proxymity, a strategic property planning firm based out of Des Moines, IA. Proxymity helps organizations turn the way they use property and the money they spend on it into a competitive advantage.

Previously, John worked in the real estate industry as a transaction advisor with Grubb & Ellis Mid-America Commercial Real Estate. He observed the significant risks buyers and tenants put themselves in when trying to understand and execute real estate transactions. Driven by the desire to protect his clients from experiencing stressful and risky transactions, making uninformed decisions, and wasting significant time and money, John founded Proxymity.

Before that, John worked in operations and sales for his family’s printing business and was responsible for the more than 140% increase in revenue through 2000-2002, which led to the sale of the organization.
