LOS ANGELES–CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) today announced new leadership assignments for several key executives, effective on January 1, 2020.
In announcing the new assignments, Bob Sulentic, CBRE’s president and chief executive officer, said: “The moves we are making allow us to bring fresh perspective to the leadership of our three business segments, take maximum advantage of the individual strengths and talents of our senior leaders, and position the company for long-term succession.”

Chris Kirk, currently Chief Executive Talent & Administrative Officer, will become Global Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Kirk was responsible for leading the implementation of the company’s recent reorganization and recruiting several top-notch senior executives. In addition to his existing duties, he will assume responsibility for Marketing, Research and the coordination of M&A activity between the company’s business units and Corporate Development team.
Mike Lafitte, currently Global CEO, Advisory Services, will become Global CEO, Real Estate Investments. This new role will capitalize on Mr. Lafitte’s deep base of relationships, broad experience and strong leadership abilities. He has also been an astute investor of the company’s capital over many years.
Darcy Mackay, Chief People Officer, will be elevated to the company’s Executive Committee. This move underscores the central role talent plays in CBRE’s ongoing success and the strong progress Ms. Mackay is making to enhance this critical element of the company’s strategy.
