CBRE adds two veterans to Hawaii office

CBRE has added a dynamic duo to its Hawaii office in Honolulu.

All malls and shopping centers are competing for hot restaurant chains these days, so CBRE tapped Jo McGarry Curran, a leading Hawaiian foodservice consultant, as a first VP of retail services. She is the founder of Mojo, a full-service restaurant advisory, and hosts a radio talk show in the islands called “Radio Mojo.”

Also named as first VP of retail services was Kelli Yanagawa Wilinski, who joins CBRE from Colliers International, where she handled some of the region's most important landlord and tenant clients.

"They have a unique ability to transform dining experiences and are exceptional at place-making, taking a flat space and reimagining it as a destination,” said senior managing director Kim Lord, who oversees the Hawaii region for CBRE.
