Looking to expand its regional retail brokerage platform following the acquisition of Dallas-based UCR last January, brokerage giant CBRE Group Inc. has named Daniel Taylor as managing director of retail for its Texas and Oklahoma division.
In his new role, Taylor has been tasked with leading the firm’s retail brokerage platform expansion in the region and create a line of cohesive services to retail clients.
“As a company, we have significantly enhanced our retail services through acquisitions of UCR last year and Philadelphia-based Fameco in 2013, among others,” said Michael Caffey, president of CBRE’s Texas-Oklahoma division, in a statement.
“Now we are putting regional leadership in place to support our sales professionals and to provide strategic, coordinated services for our clients across different markets,” he added.
In his time at CBRE, Taylor has been instrumental in building Dallas-Fort Worth’s retail business for the firm, officials said.
Mickey Ashmore, vice chairman of retail for CBRE-UCR, said Taylor has the energy and skills to put the firm into a market-leading position.
With Taylor leading the regional efforts, Ashmore will continue to focus on CBRE’s national retail service and branding efforts.
In the past few years, CBRE has acquired three retail real estate service companies throughout the United States.
