Mark Butcher Promoted to Lead CBRE’s San Diego Asset Services

CBRE promoted Mark Butcher to Managing Director of Asset Services in San Diego with responsibility for more than 13 million square feet of office, industrial and retail properties, as well as 75 employees. In this role, Butcher will continue to work with the company’s investor clients to align the operational performance of properties with broader investment objectives.

CBRE’s Robert Peddicord says, “Mark has a unique insight into the property management business, and knows how to drive value creation for investors throughout the entire lifecycle of an asset. For more than 20 years, Mr. Butcher has distinguished himself as a leader in the property management industry—overseeing portfolios of all property types and sizes.”

Butcher served as market leader and director of Asset Services in Albuquerque, NM, before relocating to San Diego in January of 2016. Prior to joining CBRE in 2009, he held various senior-level management positions of all asset types.
