CBRE Adds Leasing Team to Focus on Brooklyn and Outer Boroughs

CBRE is expanding and enhancing its New York City leasing capabilities with two new executive hires. Joseph Cirone and Patrick J. Dugan, both previously with Cushman & Wakefield, have joined as SVPs focusing on landlord and tenant representation, with a particular focus on Brooklyn and lower Manhattan.  

“Joe and Patrick are two veteran real estate professionals in the industry with exceptional knowledge of the outer boroughs, and more specifically, the Brooklyn market,” said Robert Caruso, Senior Managing Director, CBRE. “Our team looks forward to working with them as we continue to expand and enhance our brokerage services to clients throughout NYC’s outer boroughs.” 
Widely regarded among the foremost experts on the Brooklyn market, Cirone & Dugan were previously executive directors at Cushman & Wakefield. Each has negotiated several million square feet of transactions on behalf of tenants spanning the office, retail, and industrial sectors.
