CBRE GROUP, INC
For more than three decades R. Todd Doney, Vice Chairman at CBRE, has achieved performance records very few commercial real estate brokers in Los Angeles can claim. This past year was no exception.

Some of his notable highlights in 2017 include facilitating the relocation of Nestle’s U.S. headquarters from Glendale to Arlington, Virginia, totaling 267,000 square feet; and Northern Trust’s lease for 463,000 square feet in Chicago.
