Audra Johnson is a Senior Project Manager with CBRE's Project Management Services in Denver. She has 18 years of experience in the construction and architecture industry in Kansas City, Chicago, Charlotte and Denver.
Emerging from the world of architecture, Audra has spent the bulk of her career in the project management / owner’s representative space. Even as her career launched in Kansas City, her duties and success revolved around organizing, communicating and advocating for client interests during projects.
She’s a project management professional with a successful track record in meeting defined scope, time, cost and quality goals of projects; while facilitating the entire process to meet the business case and expectations of people involved in all project activities. Audra has accumulated a cross range of knowledge that represents her current best in service to the client, and demonstrated expert level decision making and project management in the execution and implementation of projects. Audra’s attention to detail and experience working with diverse projects yield a wide base of skills critical to effectively applying project management to the clients’ needs.
Audra is a fixer. Periodically inheriting broken projects during her career, Audra implements strategic controls around scope, schedule and budget to recover troubled projects and in some cases, bring them to the finish line more quickly than expected, and below budget.
Audra’s past clients describe her as a very thorough project manager who is nothing but great at managing her projects.
Prior to joining CBRE, Audra worked for various architectural firms in the project management vein.
