REMEMBERING SKIP BEEBE
Skip Beebe
Bisnow wants to offer its condolences regarding some tragic news that's just reached us. Atlanta CRE veteran and Georgia Tech professor Skip Beebe passed away last night. According to a CBRE memo, he died ?due to complications from a fall? soon after his participation on a CoreNet Global Summit panel. Skip was a 14-year vet at CBRE in Atlanta, retiring in 2007. ?He touched many livesand influenced many careers [at CBRE],? the memo states. ?Skip remained a positive influence at CBRE, serving as a mentor and counselor to many of our people and a popular instructor at CBRE University. The entire CBRE community mourns his untimely passing.? According to a GaTech bio, where Skip was a Ledbetter Professor of the Practice of Real Estate Developmnt, he began his career at Cousins Properties and then founded Mobil Land Development Corp. Eventually, he became president of Wilma Southeast, a Dutch-owned development and investment company, and then he joined CBRE, eventually leading the Atlanta office. Our thoughts are with Skip's family and friends.
