CBRE is pleased to announce Senior Associate Chris Marchildon has been honored with a prestigious NAIOP Developing Leaders Award for 2016. Now in its 11th year, the national award program honors up-and-coming commercial real estate professionals across the country, 35 years of age and under, for their valued contribution and commitment to the industry.
“I am thrilled to congratulate Chris on his NAIOP Developing Leader of the Year award,” said Craig Henig, Senior Managing Director, Southwest Region and Arizona market leader. “Chris is a valuable asset to both the CBRE Phoenix office and our industry overall. He is diligent in his application of CBRE’s core values of Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence to everything he does, and takes to heart NAIOP’s mission of improving the communities in which we develop, build and broker. Chris is most deserving of this award and I am proud to call him a partner.”
Mr. Marchildon partners with Executive Vice President Barry Gabel. The duo lead a Capital Markets team that advise clients on their real estate acquisition and disposition strategies. Their team has been nominated as Best of NAIOP Arizona’s Investment Team of the Year every year since 2010, winning the award in 2010. Individually, Mr. Marchildon has also been nominated as Best of NAIOP Arizona’s Rookie of the Year (2012), and was awarded NAIOP Arizona’s Developing Leader of the Year in 2014.
“Chris is a winner in all that he does,” said Mr. Gabel. “His care and concern for others, his follow-up skills and attention to detail, and his friendly and thoughtful disposition all make him one of the very best young brokers in not only Arizona, but throughout the entire Southwest. I am so proud of Chris for receiving this award and even more proud to have him as a partner.”
An active member of the NAIOP Arizona chapter, Mr. Marchildon is a highly visible member of the local Developing Leaders (DL) group. He has served as the DL Programs Committee Chair, Treasurer, Vice Chairman and is currently Chairman of the group. He has also served on NAIOP Arizona’s events host committee.
“Chris has been involved with almost every aspect of our Developing Leaders program,” said Tim Lawless, President, NAIOP Arizona. “This segment composes about a third of our Arizona membership and Chris has been an integral part in building the program into one of the largest in the country for NAIOP and very deserving of this national recognition.”
Mr. Marchildon is an Arizona native. He began his commercial real estate career with CBRE in 2008 after a brief stint as a minor league baseball pitcher.
