Professional Experience

A 27-year veteran of retail real estate and San Francisco native, Matt Kircher leads CBRE’s retail leasing practice in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has a remarkable brokerage track record in the Bay Area and Northern California, where he has secured 45 locations for Target Corporation as its exclusive agent in Northern California. He has also overseen leasing and marketing for 18 major shopping center projects from development to completion, totaling nearly 8 million square feet. 

Matt serves on CBRE’s local San Francisco Bay Area Executive Committee and is assisting Anthony Buono, CBRE’s Chairman Global Retail Executive Committee, and Mickey Ashmore, CBRE’s Retail Services Americas Chairman, in driving our expansive Americas retail strategy in delivering world-class retail outcomes to clients.

Prior to joining CBRE, Mr. Kircher served as Managing Principal at Cushman & Wakefield/Terranomics, where he led more than 30 retail professionals in six Northern California offices for the past 20 years. Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield predecessor Terranomics in 1994, Mr. Kircher spent the first five years of his career in retail real estate as a professional in CBRE’s Bay Area offices. Since then, Terranomics and its successors have ranked Mr. Kircher as one of their top Bay Area retail professionals every year. 

He also served as president and chairman of ChainLinks Retail Advisors, a national network of retail real estate professionals, from 2007 to 2013 and was awarded the #5 Power Broker Nationally by Chain Store Age in 2014 in its inaugural edition.
