CBRE names new chief of specialty leasing

Dave Brown, a 25-year industry veteran who has worked for GGP, The Rouse Co., and Urban Retail Properties, has joined CBRE to lead its retail specialty leasing and alternative revenue practice.

Brown will hold the title of senior VP and work out of the company’s Chicago office in representing shopping center owners in their dealings with temporary and pop-up stores, kiosks and retail carts. In addition he will handle vending, mobile marketing, advertising displays, and product sampling.

“Dave brings a valuable skill set to CBRE in that specialty retailers are an integral and growing component of creating a compelling consumer experience at malls,” said Mark Hunter, managing director of CBRE retail asset services and leader of the company’s mall practice.

Since joining CBRE in 2016, Hunter has tripled the square footage of mall space under CBRE’s management.
