Brokerage firm CBRE recently announced it has named Steven Gardner team lead of its New Jersey Research department. Gardner brings over 20 years of experience in both research and brokerage to the role, and will now focus on enhancing the firm’s thought leadership in the state.
“Steve brings a wealth of insight and experience to his leadership role in our New Jersey research division,” Jeff Hipschman, senior managing director of CBRE in New Jersey, said. “With his guidance, we will continue to expand CBRE’s market insights by delivering first-class research and market analytics that further support our regional brokerage teams and – in turn – our clients’ real estate success.”
Gardner will work closely with tri-state research manager Clint Ridgewell and director of research analysis Nicole LaRusso.
“CBRE’s industry-leading research capabilities have always provided a great competitive advantage for our brokers, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to remain with a firm that I regard as the best of the best,” Gardner said. “I am excited to take on the challenge of building even more client-facing value into the CBRE research division, which will continue to be an invaluable source of market trend information and – more importantly – actionable insights.”
