Professional Experience


As a Project Management Director with the CBRE Project Management Group in Phoenix, Ray is responsible for overseeing construction projects for ground up, tenant improvement and landlord capital projects in a wide range of commercial office and healthcare properties. His full range of capabilities includes construction management, risk management, quality assurance and control, budgeting, scheduling, design oversight and logistics.

With 20 years of construction experience, Ray prioritizes getting the job done right the first time, acting as a true owner’s representative.
