New York, NY According to CBRE, David Hollander, a 25-year veteran of the firm, and Neil King, with 12 years at the company, have been promoted to vice chairmen. Both have been consistently recognized as top producers within CBRE.
Hollander has developed relationships with a variety of blue-chip clientele over the course of his career, including Fortune 500 corporations, media, advertising, public sector, finance and law firms within Manhattan. During his tenure, he has consistently been among the firm’s Coldbert Coldwell Circle, which is awarded to the company’s top 3% of producers nationally.
King specializes in representing corporate tenants and is one of the top landlord repositioning and leasing experts in the country. He currently represents more than 15 million square feet of premier office assets and has completed more than 11 million s/f of leasing transactions across New York City, representing both landlords and tenants. King has been in CBRE’s top 10% of producers nationally multiple times during his career, breaking into the Coldbert Coldwell Circle in 2016 and 2018.
“David is a well-respected CBRE veteran. He consistently makes a big impact with his clients – which range from financial firms to the world’s most powerful tech companies – as he guides them through the complex New York office market. Most recently, he represented BounceX as the company made a decision to relocate to Downtown Manhattan, taking 79,000 s/f at One World Trade Center,” said Matthew Van Buren, president of CBRE’s northeast division. “Neil prides himself on his reputation, which he’s been able to build over the past 12 years at CBRE due to the dedication he has to his clients and their business. Neil’s ability to connect with people has created fruitful partnerships that result in some of New York City’s most talked about deals, like Netflix’s 104,000 s/f lease at Normandy’s 888 Broadway.”
Van Buren said, “Being named vice chairman is the pinnacle of achievement at CBRE – it’s a distinction that is very well-deserved for David and Neil. I look forward to watching as they continue to make an impact on our city’s real estate market.”
