Letter from CBA's Board of Directors
The Board of Directors of the Commercial Brokers Association is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Chris McDougall as its new President and CEO. He replaces Michelle Mills Clement, who recently accepted a position as the CEO of the Chicago Association of Realtors.
Mr. McDougall is a veteran commercial real estate industry leader with extensive experience in research, data, brokerage, and technology. Most recently Chris was head of Enterprise Information Management for North America at Colliers International, where his team was responsible for numerous strategic data, research, and business intelligence initiatives. Previous roles include Vice President of Information Management at LoopNet, where he was an integral part of the team who developed one the largest commercial real estate property databases in the US at the time, and National Director of Research & Client Services at Grubb & Ellis Company, where he led a team of 100 research and marketing professionals across 45 offices. McDougall also has experience in commercial real estate brokerage and transactions, having been a key member of ATREG, Inc., a boutique, Seattle-based firm specializing in the disposition of semiconductor manufacturing assets, including clean room facilities, industrial buildings, and land.
“We are extremely excited to have Chris leading our organization” stated Jeff Johnson, SIOR, CCIM, and Chairman of the CBA Board of Directors. “Our Mission at CBA is to increase the productivity of our members, and his background in IT, Research, and Brokerage makes him uniquely qualified to run CBA. He is a strong leader who truly understands what it’s like to be a broker, and the ever-changing technology and research trends in our industry.”
Michelle Mills Clement expressed confidence in the board’s choice. “Chris’ depth of knowledge and experience in commercial real estate data and technology, along with his dedication to the brokerage industry, really made him a solid choice for the role. I’m very happy with the search committee’s decision, and I’m confident Chris will continue CBA’s position as the largest and most robust commercial real estate MLS association in the country while taking it to the next level.”
McDougall started his new role on Monday, March 19th.
