As an Associate Director for CBRE, John oversees the management of approximately 7.9 MSF of industrial and office property throughout the Chicagoland area. Within 18 months of joining CBRE, he was named Asset Services Team Leader of the Year (2010). His responsibilities focus on optimizing portfolio performance through initiatives including operating expense reduction, efficient capital expenditure deployment and lease renewal brokerage. These projects have contributed to a four-year average annual occupancy of 93% on the DeAWM/RREEF Chicago industrial portfolio. John also managed the short-hold PacLife industrial assets, acquired in June of 2012, and recently took on oversight responsibility for the new1.5 MSF TPG Chicago industrial portfolio.
John joined CBRE in November 2009 as part of the RREEF account’s national real estate outsourcing group, where he serves as their Chicago Managing Agent over a 6.3 MSF office and industrial portfolio. He joined RREEF in 2002 as a Senior Property Manager, where his role quickly grew to include portfolio oversight and leasing. Throughout his nearly eight-year tenure with the firm, John embraced its commitment to tenant satisfaction and asset value preservation, approaching every leasing transaction and property with those values in mind.
John received his Civil Engineering degree from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, which led to a project management position for a regional commercial real estate developer and manager, Northern Builders, Inc. It was there that John transitioned into asset management and continued until joining RREEF in 2002.
