As Managing Director and Client Solution’s lead for CBRE's Americas Agile Practice, Laura is responsible for partnering with CBRE brokerage teams to deepen client relationships, guide cutting-edge Agile solutions and optimize client portfolios through real-time market intelligence on ever-changing business demands. During her nearly two decades at CBRE, Laura has cultivated a unique flex-market expertise that she brings to the Agile Practice. Her previous roles have required flexible solutioning and relationship management for a broad set of client types, ranging from brokerage to investors to occupiers and even the flexible office provider.

Prior to her current role, Laura held numerous leadership positions in her three years with CBRE's flexible office solution subsidiary, Hana. Starting as Head of Supply for the Americas region, Laura informed investor clients on the value of adding flexible office space to their portfolios in order to help launch Hana. She then turned her attention to the needs of occupier clients as VP of Sales, cultivating a pipeline of occupier relationships and overseeing Hana's brokerage network, educating brokers on the value of flex. Lastly, Laura spearheaded Client Care for Hana, where she managed the relationship with landlords while ensuring the alignment of expectations, profitability and client satisfaction, until CBRE merged Hana with Industrious.

Before her time at Hana, Laura served as a Sr. Director for CBRE's Labor Analytics team for eight years. During her tenure, she acted as a consultant for Fortune 500 clients, advising them on their talent and location strategies through the use of technology, analytics and extensive market research.

Laura holds a Master's of Arts from Arizona State University and a Bachelor's of Science from Mississippi State University.
