Reilly Promoted by CBRE

Colin L. Reilly, a Stamford-based corporate and institutional leasing and sales specialist with over eight years of experience in commercial real estate services throughout the northern suburbs of New York City, has been promoted to first vice president by CB Richard Ellis. He previously served as a vice president.

“Colin is one of our most promising young professionals. His creativity and business acumen have resulted in innovative real estate solutions for his clients, and he has the talent and drive to become one of the top real estate executives in his field,” said Robert Caruso, managing director of CB Richard Ellis’ Westchester/Fairfield operation. “He is an outstanding client service provider and easily forms relationships that last beyond a single transaction. We consider him an invaluable member of our leasing and sales team.”

During Reilly’s tenure as a commercial real estate professional, he has completed more than 2 million square feet of leasing and sales transactions, primarily in Westchester County, N.Y., and in Connecticut.
