CBRE announced today that Russell Hodges has been promoted to Senior Managing Director for Investor Services in the company’s Houston office. In this role, he will lead CBRE’s investor leasing, capital markets and property management business lines.
Mr. Hodges will replace Mark Taylor who has served in the role since 2007. Mr. Taylor, who spent the last 40 years in the commercial real estate industry, will retire in March.
“Russell is highly regarded by his peers and clients for his deep market knowledge and his strong leadership abilities,” said Peter Mainguy, CBRE’s Houston Market Leader. “I am confident that his expertise and strategic mindset will be a differentiator to our team and clients as he builds on the legacy left by Mark Taylor.”

“Our office continues to be a place where top industry professionals thrive, and I’m excited for the opportunity to partner with and serve all of our teams and clients in this regard,” said Hodges. “Our teamis second to none, and we are well-positioned to expand our leading regional market share and provide exceptional service to our clients.”
