CBRE Bolsters Private Capital Lending Capabilities with Senior Hire
September 18, 2023
CBRE announced today that Farhan Kabani has joined the firm’s Debt & Structured Finance team as an Executive Vice President focused on financing solutions for middle market and private clients nationwide.
Based in Dallas, Mr. Kabani will procure debt and equity for commercial real estate middle market assets, including single-tenant and multi-tenant commercial properties. Over his 17-year career, he has structured thousands of transactions and secured over $6 billion of capital for his clients.
"The addition of Farhan allows CBRE to differentiate further the depth of our debt and equity solutions and reinforces our leading position in the Net Lease and broader middle market sector. I have long admired Farhan’s acumen as a prominent intermediary, and I am thrilled that he will now be offering strategic insight and advisory services to our clients and professionals,” said Will Pike, Vice Chairman for Capital Markets at CBRE.
“The middle market space is highly fragmented and as the industry leader, CBRE is best positioned to bridge the gap of service and execution within this space,” said Mr. Kabani. “I look forward to tapping into the firm’s market leading capabilities, allowing our team to source the best available financing solutions and deliver institutional quality service to the private client sector.”
Mr. Kabani has worked in various leadership and production roles, most recently at Northmarq, a Minneapolis-based capital markets firm, following its acquisition of Four Pillars Capital Markets (FPCM), a national middle market commercial real estate finance intermediary. He co-founded FPCM in 2021 in partnership with Stan Johnson Company, after spending 15 years at Mark One Capital, a subsidiary of Marcus & Millichap.
