Laehy and Beck Get Nods for Crexi Top Spots

In response to Crexi’s accelerated momentum and positive feedback from the CRE community, the company continues to add headcount, increasing its total number of employees by close to 40 percent in 2021. Crexi recently hired Tim Laehy as chief financial officer and Kris Cheh Beck as chief legal officer.

Laehy brings more than 20 years of extensive finance, operational and advisory experience to his new role as CFO. Encountering both public and private companies, Laehy has played an integral role in helping organizations scale for acquisition or IPO.

During his tenure as interim CFO of Coinbase, Laehy built and managed global financial operations and initiatives, growing the company’s gross revenue by 60 times. Leveraging his previous experience, Laehy will focus his role at Crexi on building a finance function capable of bringing the company to the public markets. He will also establish business level controls, and develop and drive Crexi’s strategic planning process.
