Gary Nussbaum Moves to CBRE on Capital Markets Team

Gary Nussbaum has joined CBRE as SVP on its capital markets team. He brings more than 30 years of investment sales experience to CBRE, having completed more than 30 million square feet of transactions totaling more than $3.3 billion.

Nussbaum will lead CBRE’s suburban Chicago office investment sales efforts, partnering with EVP Blake Johnson. The team will also spearhead a regional approach, supporting CBRE’s Midwest markets in winning and executing business on large transactions.

“Adding someone with Gary’s experience to our team will strengthen our position in the greater Chicago market and the Midwest,” said John Latessa, president of CBRE’s Midwest division. “This regional strategy will also better serve our clients, as we will be able to offer our clients a coordinated approach across the expanding Midwest markets.”

Nussbaum joins CBRE from Transwestern, where he led the firm’s Midwest office investment sales group since 1999 as a managing director.
