CBRE is pleased to announce the hiring of Mark Whitney, Director of Property Tax Services.
In his new role, Mr. Whitney will work with clients on their property tax needs. His expertise in minimizing property and excise tax burdens will be especially critical to CBRE’s Agency Services offering.
“Mark is an expert in property tax advisory services and he will be instrumental to the firm as we build our tax appeal practice,” said Craig Henig, senior managing director and Arizona market leader. “His years of experience and the numerous relationships he has built throughout the region will only serve to strengthen the CBRE platform and allow us to better serve our clients with all aspects of their real estate business needs.”
