Dallas CRE Firm BBG Hires Industry Veteran as Managing Director

The firm said that Matt Rader will lead and drive continued growth in BBG's cost-segregation services.

Industry veteran Matt Rader has been appointed managing director at BBG and will be based at its Dallas headquarters. BBG is the nation’s largest independent commercial real estate services firm.

The firm said that Rader will lead and drive continued growth in BBG’s cost-segregation services.

“We are excited that Matt will be leading and building out our cost segregation team,” BBG CEO Chris Roach, MAI, CCIM, said in a statement. “Matt’s extensive industry experience and strong leadership skills make him uniquely qualified for this position. We look forward to Matt working with our clients to maximize their bottom line through cost segregation strategies and related services, as well as making a valuable contribution to the firm’s overall strategic growth.”

Rader brings more than two decades of experience in the real estate industry and has expertise in cost segregation, purchase price allocation, due diligence, tax, and tax credits.

Cost segregation is the process under U.S. tax laws of identifying personal property assets that are grouped with real property assets and separating personal assets for tax reporting purposes.

Prior to joining BBG, Rader was a senior director at Kroll, a risk and financial consulting firm. Before that, he was a managing director at CBRE and as a director at Source Advisors.

“My decision to join BBG was based on its well-deserved reputation of providing high-value and conflict-free services to clients, its diversified team of skilled professionals, advanced technology, and long-standing industry leadership role,” Rader said in a statement. “I look forward to contributing to the continued success of the firm.”

BBG has 47 offices in key U.S. markets and serves more than 4,500 clients.
