PALO ALTO March 11, 2015 — CBRE is pleased to announce the recent hiring of six new professionals in its Foster City and Palo Alto offices. David Black, Jason Cranston and Marshall Hydorn have joined the company’s Foster City office as Senior Vice Presidents in its Industrial Services Group.

“Palo Alto and the San Francisco Peninsula are among the fastest growing markets in the country,” said Todd Husak, Managing Director, CBRE Palo Alto and Foster City. “We are focused on making strategic hires in order to stay ahead of the growth and continue to deliver outstanding results to our clients.”

Mr. Black, Mr. Cranston and Mr. Hydorn joined CBRE from the DTZ Burlingame office and as a team bring more than 75 years of commercial real estate experience. They have become the industrial market leaders and represent some of the largest tenants and landlords throughout the greater Bay Area.

Patrick Reilly brings 10 years of real estate brokerage experience and recently joined from Cornish & Carey Newmark Knight Frank. He is focused on the San Francisco Peninsula and Palo Alto office markets, working with both landlords and tenants. Mr. Reilly has worked with major clients in the leasing and selling of assets throughout the Bay Area.
