CB Richard Ellis promoted Matt Van Buren to president of the New York Tri-State Region, the firm announced today. Van Buren had served as an executive managing director of the Midtown Manhattan brokerage division since 2009 after joining the firm as a managing director in 2006.

Van Buren is replacing Mitch Rudin, who, as The Real Deal previously reported,  left CBRE in June to serve as the president and CEO of U.S. commercial operations for developer Brookfield Properties. Van Buren will continue to work out of the firm’s New York City headquarters at 200 Park Avenue.

“Since joining CBRE, he has excelled in various leadership positions with increased management responsibilities, and earned the confidence of both our Tri-State professionals and our senior management team,” said Mike Lafitte, president of CBRE Americas, in a statement. “With Matt at the helm, we are well positioned to further grow our leadership position in the nation’s most influential market.”

Prior to joining CBRE, Van Buren worked at General Electric and GlaxoSmithKline before building and managing sales organizations for Wolters Kuwer and Thomson Reuters. — Adam Fusfeld
