Professional Experience

Darin Mellott is a Director of Capital Markets Research at CBRE. In this capacity, Darin works with other members of senior leadership to provide analysis and develop “house views” on global markets and economic conditions, with a focus on their impact on real estate.

Beyond this, Darin leads and contributes to research and strategy efforts across the globe on behalf of clients, and has authored numerous white papers for the firm. He also represents CBRE with the media and at public forums on a frequent basis. Prior to his current role, Darin was CBRE’s Director of Research for the Americas.


Outside of his formal responsibilities, Darin serves on various boards for prominent institutions and is often called upon to provide expert opinion on a wide range of issues, including real estate, public policy and economic matters. He also regularly provides economic and real estate insights to policymakers at the local, state and federal levels. Darin currently serves as a Senior Advisor to the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah and is a member of
the Utah Economic Council.

Both in his native Utah and more broadly, Darin is a respected contributor to economic thought leadership and the business community. He was named a Forty Under 40 honoree by Utah Business, and Harvard Business School selected him to be a participant in the Young American Leaders Program—an extension of the school’s U.S. competitiveness project aimed at promoting cross-sector collaboration to solve pressing issues and achieve shared prosperity in

Darin completed his master’s degree in Real Estate Finance at the University of Cambridge and received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Brigham Young University.
