Professional Experience

A key member of CBRE’s Occupier Services Group, Matt Wersel partners with George Fox and Ham Southworth in the representation of tenants on an exclusive basis throughout the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Peninsula. The team’s representation ranges from startups to Fortune 500 corporations across multiple markets. Matt's role within the partnership is business development, transaction management and relationship management. Matt has also successfully built and grown teams on both a domestic and international level for clients seeking a single service provider.

Prior to joining Occupier Services at CBRE, Matt spent several years within two different Capital Markets groups at CBRE. He has extensive experience on both an Institutional (IG) and Private Capital (PCG) level and has closed dispositions and acquisitions in excess of $450 million. Matt's experience in this channel of the industry gives him a unique view of the market that his competition does not possess.

A graduate of De La Salle High School in Concord, CA, Matt was a member of both the nationally ranked football and baseball programs. As a senior, De La Salle broke the national win streak record of 72 games. Matt's true passion was baseball, however, and after receiving numerous honors, Matt went on to accept a scholarship to Pepperdine University and ultimately finished his playing career at The University of Arizona. Matt strives to bring the same discipline and excellence he achieved on the field to his career at CBRE.
