CBRE Hires Covey as Senior VP in Boston

CBRE has hired Greg Covey as Senior Vice President in the firm’s Boston office. In his new role, Covey will work directly with retail veteran Matt Curtin advising both landlords and tenants on retail-related strategies, market positioning and expansion and in lease negotiations within the urban core of Boston.

Prior to joining CBRE, Covey worked as senior director of leasing at WS Development, where his responsibilities centered around leasing the company’s retail-driven assets in Palm Beach as well as in Boston’s Seaport District.
