CBRE's Schoppmann Transitioning to Executive Managing Director, Market Leader for Greater D.C./Baltimore Region
Current Manhattan Market Leader and Head of Occupier Services for the NY Tri-State Region to Assume Role January 1
Kyle Schoppmann, Manhattan market leader and head of occupier services for CBRE's New York Tri-State region, has been selected to succeed John Germano as executive managing director and market leader for the Greater Washington, D.C./Baltimore region.
Germano disclosed his intent back in August to retire by the end of the year. Effective January 1, 2018, Schoppmann will oversee roughly 1,500 employees across CBRE's D.C., Bethesda, Baltimore and Tysons Corner offices as his successor.
Schoppmann joined CBRE in 2007 as managing director of brokerage services after having previously worked as a consulting partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers and IBM, roles that saw her head up global teams responsible for sales and marketing strategies, enterprise software development and business process improvement.
As the Manhattan market leader, Schoppmann oversees the day-to-day sales operations for all CBRE service lines in the market. Under her leadership, CBRE's New York City office closed nearly six million square feet in tenant representation deals and four million square feet in landlord representation deals in 2016, according to CoStar information.
“Kyle is a proven leader with a strong track record of success running our prestigious Manhattan operations. Kyle knows our company and our diverse business lines extremely well, and is an expert at integrating our talented professionals with CBRE’s differentiated platform to drive growth and produce exceptional client outcomes,” said John Ferguson, president of CBRE’s Southeast division.
Schoppmann currently chairs the real estate committee as a board member of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and also sits on the board of transatlantic advocacy group, British American Business. She holds an MBA in finance from the University of Michigan and a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Duke University.
