CBRE announced that Joseph Compagno has joined as vice president of the firm’s Capital Markets Investment Properties Group in Phoenix.

Compagno has more than eight years of experience in commercial investment sales and will lead the single-tenant, net-leased retail investment initiative.

Compagno comes to CBRE from Faris Lee Investments, where he worked as a director for more than two years. During that time, he gained extensive experience representing clients in the acquisition and disposition of shopping centers and single-tenant assets.

Prior to joining Faris Lee Investments, Compagno worked for nearly six years at the Phoenix office of Marcus and Millichap, where he quickly established himself as a market leader in the sale of retail investments throughout Arizona and across the U.S. He was named associate director of the National Retail Group in 2007 and was promoted to senior associate in 2008.

“Joe is well known throughout the marketplace for his expertise in retail investment sales,” said Craig Henig, CBRE’s senior managing director and Arizona market leader. “His skill set, deep market knowledge and client-focused service are the perfect complement to our team of best-in-class investment professionals.”

Compagno holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Arizona State University and is a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) and Urban Land Institute (ULI). He resides in Scottsdale.
