Katie Kelley joins CBRE

CBRE’s local Healthcare Services team has grown by one. The firm has announced the hiring of Senior Associate Katie Kelley.

Ms. Kelley joins the team lead by First Vice President Kate Morris and Vice President Vince Femiano. She will focus her attention on agency leasing and investment services. In her new role she will work with healthcare systems, practice groups and medical building owners to help them meet their healthcare real estate and business goals.

“We are thrilled to welcome Katie to the team. Bringing her onboard completes our team and will allow us to grow our agency platform,” said Ms. Morris. “Her asset management experience gives her an “ownership” mentality that will greatly benefit our agency clients. Her unique skillset and contacts, coupled with the experience and creativity Vince and I have will allow us to better service our healthcare clients and provide them a spectrum of fully compressive solutions.”

Prior to joining the CBRE Healthcare Services team, Ms. Kelley was Vice President of Leasing for Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. (HTA), a publicly traded REIT based in Scottsdale, Arizona. In this role, she was directly responsible for the marketing and leasing of HTA’s 1 million SF medical office building portfolio in Phoenix, and oversaw the marketing and leasing of an additional 500,000 SF in Tucson, Arizona and Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo, California. Before being elevated to Vice President, Ms. Kelley was HTA’s Leasing Manager for the South/Southwest Region. As leasing manager, she was responsible for the performance of HTA’s 4.5 million SF portfolio across eight states.

Ms. Kelley began her commercial real estate career in 2010 as part of an office services brokerage team with CBRE’s Phoenix office. The team represented institutional and private owners of office and medical office buildings, totaling over 5 million SF in Phoenix.

“Katie is a great addition to our already strong Healthcare Services team and I’m happy to welcome her back into the CBRE fold,” said Craig Henig, senior managing director and Arizona market leader. “Katie is the perfect compliment to Kate and Vince’s team and her experience, client-service mentality and market knowledge will greatly benefit our healthcare clients.”

Ms. Kelley holds a B.A. in communication from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.
