Robert Blount has returned to CBRE’s Dallas-Fort Worth Advisory & Transaction Services team as a vice chairman, the company announced.
Blount will focus on representing office occupiers and offering strategic consulting services for his clients, Dallas-based CBRE said.
“Robert is one of the most highly regarded office professionals in Dallas, participating in some of the largest, market-shifting transactions as our region has become one of the country’s leading office markets,” Brooke Armstrong, president of advisory services for Dallas-Fort Worth, said in a statement. “His immense success is rooted in his ability to develop thoughtful relationships and bring a unique approach to each transaction and client he serves. We couldn’t be happier to have him back on our team.”
Blount is an 18-year industry veteran who spent over 10 years at CBRE from 2008 to 2019 as a senior vice president before moving to JLL in 2019.
CBRE said Blount’s clients span a variety of industries, including financial services, legal, and advertising. In 2022 alone, some of his largest deals included Bank OZK’s 110,000-square-foot anchor-tenant lease at 23Springs and TRG’s (formerly The Richards Group) 101,000-square-foot lease at The Stack in Deep Ellum.
“I’m incredibly excited to return to CBRE at such a dynamic time in the commercial real estate industry,” Blount said in a statement. “CBRE’s platform, resources, and people are tremendous differentiators in advising clients in today’s rapidly-evolving environment.”
CBRE Group is the world’s largest commercial real estate services and investment firm, based on 2021 revenue. It has more than 105,000 employees, excluding Turner & Townsend employees, who serve clients in more than 100 countries.
