Professional Experience

Josh Lehr is a Director in CBRE’s Global Workplace Solutions (GWS) Group, leading the strategic consulting team for the Verizon account.  Josh and his team provide support to Verizon through strategic planning, portfolio optimization, business case creation, data analysis and market due diligence.  His leadership has led to the implementation of initiatives such as shared workplace program, connected community development and automated parking and fleet management. 

Prior to working with Verizon, Josh served the GWS Iron Mountain account where he focused on the due diligence and analysis of a 20 million-square-foot portfolio associated with a $2-billion acquisition.  In-depth analysis included portfolio optimization, labor analytics and operational rebalancing to offset the asymmetric impact of acquisitions.
