New York, NY (September 12, 2016) — CBRE Group, Inc. announced two new hires today to further its commitment to two critical areas of business—Capital Markets and Research.
Marc Possick has joined CBRE’s Manhattan Management Team as Managing Director and will oversee its Capital Markets line of business, including Investment Properties, Debt & Structured Finance and Loan Sales Advisory, as well as assist with key Advisory & Transaction Services initiatives.
Marc’s 25 years of experience extends across both the debt and equity sectors, with specific expertise in managing and repositioning institutional assets through economic downturns. Most recently, Marc was a Senior Vice President at GE Capital, responsible for debt and equity originations, asset management, leasing, restructuring and disposition of real estate investments nationally. Prior to his 11 years with GE, Marc was actively involved in development, investment and asset management activities at CBA Mortgage Partners, E&Y Kenneth Leventhal and MetLife. He graduated with a B.A. in economics from Indiana University and holds an M.B.A. in finance/accounting from the University of Chicago.
“Marc’s knowledge and experience put us in a great position as we look to grow key segments of our Capital Markets business here in Manhattan,” noted Kyle Schoppmann, executive managing director and market leader for Advisory & Transaction Services.
Nicole LaRusso has joined CBRE as Director, Research & Analysis, Tri-State Region. Nicole comes to CBRE from the Alliance for Downtown New York, where she was SVP, Planning and Economic Development. Having served with the Alliance for just over a decade, Nicole was intimately involved with the expansive efforts undertaken by the organization to successfully transform Downtown into a dynamic and diverse area. Nicole has a deep background in real estate advisory and analysis—prior to the Alliance, she worked with the Sedway Group in San Francisco, and Ernst & Young and Appleseed in New York, on development and redevelopment projects for both public and private sector entities.
“Research is a competitive advantage—and harnessing our market information more intelligently for our prospective and current clients is critical,” said Spencer Levy, head of research for CBRE’s Americas. “We look forward to leveraging Nicole’s experience with the Alliance as a way to move our research capabilities forward.”
