He listens to their needs, then works with his team to turn that vision into executable design and construction. These are great skills that we are excited to bring to our Phoenix clients.” Rosato began his career at JP Morgan Chase, advancing to the role of Market Director of Construction. He then spent ten years at the Phoenix office of CBRE, specializing in the occupier and tenant rep business.
