Pete Schippits

Senior Managing Director, CBRE

Pete Schippits is senior managing director of CBRE’s Mountain States, providing strategic leadership for eight Western U.S. offices covering six states. Partnering with seven managing directors, Schippits works to grow CBRE’s business by recruiting and retaining the industry’s top talent and cultivating client outcomes that directly drive bottom-line results.

Based in Denver, he joined CBRE as Colorado’s Market Leader, responsible for overseeing all business lines across five Front Range offices. Pete has successfully diversified CBRE’s Colorado-based service offerings, recruiting experts in more than a dozen specialties — including property tax, joint-venture equity, manufactured housing, eminent domain and small balance lending — all with the goal of better meeting the needs of CBRE clients.

In total, he has nearly doubled the firm’s local talent base, surpassing 1,000 Colorado-based employees in 2018. He also spearheaded the opening of a new downtown Boulder office and oversaw the roll-out of CBRE’s global workplace strategy initiative — Workplace360 — in three Colorado offices.
