Mary Jo Eaton has accepted a new position at CBRE, meaning the largest commercial real estate brokerage in Florida needs a new leader.
CBRE named Eaton president of Florida and Latin America operations in September 2015. She was previously executive managing director for CBRE in Florida.
Eaton is now listed on CBRE’s website as global president of asset services, with over 2.9 billion square feet of commercial property, and valuation and advisory services, with nearly 150,000 valuation assignments annually around the world.
CBRE spokesman Daniel Jimenez said Eaton will continue to lead Florida while the brokerage seeks a new president. CBRE announced the promotion in a corporate release in June.
On the Business Journal’ s list of top Commercial Real Estate Brokerages in South Florida, CBRE ranked No. 1 with $4.65 billion in sales and leases in 2014. It also ranked No. 1 on the Commercial Property Management Firms list with 18.2 million square feet under management in 2015.
CBRE has 18 offices and four affiliate offices in Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean.
