Ms. Giamartino and Mr. Kohli report directly to Bob Sulentic, CBRE’s President and Chief Executive Officer, and are members of the company’s 10-person Executive Committee. Mr. Kohli is the first CBRE executive from outside the US to ascend to this level in the company.
Mr. Sulentic commented: “Over the past several years, we’ve evolved our senior leadership team dramatically, identifying our most compelling executives and putting them in roles where they can have the greatest impact on our business. The elevation of Emma and Vikram represents another step in this direction.
“Consolidating our Capital Investment and Finance functions under Emma’s leadership reflects the growing importance of capital allocation to the long-term growth aspirations that we outlined at the end of last year. She has proven to be an accomplished investor of our capital who has an exceptional ability to work effectively with our leaders around the world in executing our capital investment strategy.
“Vikram has rapidly emerged as a leader with a unique ability to harness data and insight from across our business as well as from external sources, and, like Emma, excels at working across our global platform. Adding our Strategy and Digital & Technology functions to his mandate will create a business intelligence capability that will better enable us to make powerful, fact-based decisions as we guide the company’s growth.”
“I want to thank Leah for her vision in initiating the transformation of our Finance organization, managing Finance through the worst of the Covid crisis and, together with Kristyn Farahmand, taking our investor relations program to a new level, including articulating the financial framework for our long-term growth aspiration. We wish Leah continued success.”
