People Moves: CBRE appoints New Canberra Managing Director
Press Release - CBRE has appointed leading property professional Nic Purdue as Managing Director of the firm's Canberra business. Mr Purdue joined CBRE 2 ½ years ago to lead the Canberra Capital Markets team, bringing more than two decades of property industry experience.
