CBRE Announces Succession Plan
New Year, new leadership: Mark Renzoni is the new president and CEO of CBRE in Canada. (We may still be writing 2013 on our cheques, but Mark is still writing COO.)
Mark became COO in 2012 and had been based out of Vancouver, where he also led the company’s B.C. operations. He's been with the company for 25 years. (He's seen some interesting haircuts walk in and out of those offices.) Former CEO Stefan Ciotlos will stay, focusing on “key strategic growth opportunities.” Bisnow will be sitting down with Mark in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned.
Company chairman John O’Bryan tells us Mark’s experience encompasses all property types and covers a large swath of the country. “He was a big part of CBRE’s expansion in Western Canada,” John tells us. “He was a fixture in our Downtown Toronto office eight years prior to his move to Vancouver in 2008.” The Vancouver office has been one of the top-performing CBRE hubs in the Americas, adds John.
