CBRE has announced the promotions of three top executives in its Westchester/Fairfield office. David Gavin was named senior vice president, Michael McCall a first vice president and Jacqueline Novotny a vice president. The announcement was made by Robert Caruso, senior managing director of CBRE’s Westchester/Fairfield County operations.
Previously a first vice president, Gavin joined CBRE in 2006 as a member of the 15-person New York Institutional Properties Group, which focuses on generating investment sales business in the Metropolitan New York region. His responsibilities include underwriting and financial analysis, buyer and seller communications, and marketing, due diligence coordination and marketing materials production for retail asset offerings. As a senior member with the top producing suburban investment sales team at CBRE, Gavin was involved in the sale of 13 single retail or portfolio transactions last year alone.
McCall joined CBRE in 2012 as a vice president, specializing in tenant and agency representation services. With over 10 years of experience as a broker and consultant in corporate and institutional real estate, he has been responsible for more than two million square feet of leasing in over 300 transactions and is currently an exclusive landlord representative of over 3.5 million square feet of space in Westchester and Fairfield counties.
Novotny joined CBRE in 2013 as an associate and quickly rose up the ranks. While CBRE’s corporate guidelines establish a five-year threshold of employment in the firm to achieve this position, due to her extensive accomplishments within a short period of time, CBRE waived the five-year employment threshold and she achieved the title of vice president within just three years. She oversees the leasing of over 1 million square feet in Westchester, representing some of the largest landlord’s in the county including SLGreen and Keystone Property Group; major institutional owners, Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation; and boutique owners like GTJ Management, DSel Properties and Phoenix Capital Partners.
