The senior executives responsible for leading these businesses will report to Mr. Kohli, and they will work together to align them more closely from both client-facing and cost efficiency perspectives. Advisory and GWS will continue to be reported as separate segments. Mr. Kohli will also continue to oversee the leaders of CBRE’s Digital & Technology and Research teams.

“Vikram joined us in our India brokerage business in 2001, and since then, has excelled in key roles across multiple geographies. He is a compelling leader with an exceptional level of strategic, financial and digital capability. Our Advisory and GWS segments, both of which lead their respective sectors globally, will be more connected, leaner and better positioned to deliver superior integrated client solutions under his leadership,” said Bob Sulentic, CBRE’s chair and chief executive officer.

To bring greater focus and impact to his efforts, Jack Durburg, who has served as CEO, Advisory Services, will now exclusively lead the U.S. and Canada Advisory business, and Chris Kirk, who has served as COO of Advisory, will lead the international Advisory business. Both executives will report to Mr. Kohli.

Chandra Dhandapani, who has served as CEO, GWS, will transition her responsibilities and then leave CBRE on September 8, 2024, and the leaders of the GWS Enterprise and GWS Local businesses will report to Mr. Kohli.

“Chandra has made notable contributions in a variety of leadership roles over the past eight years, from significantly upgrading the talent of our Digital & Technology team to advancing our capabilities in serving GWS occupier clients. We greatly appreciate everything that Chandra has done for CBRE and wish her continued career success,” Mr. Sulentic said.
