CBRE brokerage vows to remain competitive in gaming
13 August 2012
Commercial real estate brokerage CBRE says the loss of two Las Vegas gaming brokers to competitor Newmark Grubb Knight Frank doesn’t diminish its commitment to the industry.
“The gaming industry is a very important sector of our business, and CBRE is committed to maintaining its market position,” Las Vegas managing director Michael Newman said. “Our global presence in Asia and Europe gives us a strategic advantage over others, particularly as gaming markets outside the U.S. continue to expand. We are also very fortunate to have a highly-regarded Global Hotel Group, as well as Chris Komanowski, based here in Las Vegas, to drive our continued efforts.”
Komanowski, a senior vice president at CBRE, is a former executive with Marriott Hotels and Caesars Entertainment Corp. Newman said he has a deep understanding of the sector.
“With this tremendous expertise both locally and internationally, we plan to keep a strong focus on the gaming industry,” Newman said.
