Professional Experience


Since joining CBRE in 2005, John has been a trusted advisor to many of Calgary’s – and Canada’s – best and fastest-growing companies. He is a community builder, an educator, and a fierce advocate for his client’s interests in negotiations. He specializes in tenant representation and takes pride in making the process easier in lease negotiations, renewals, location analysis, portfolio strategy, strategic planning, rent optimization, build-to-suit, and sale/purchase solutions.

John believes that Calgarians are resilient and creative and that together, they can build a better industry, a vibrant city, and unique solutions to real estate problems. Outside of his work at CBRE, he volunteers as the Past-President of NAIOP (Calgary's Commercial Real Estate Association), as an advisor to the Westman Centre of Real Estate Studies at the University of Calgary and, as a committee member of the Real Estate Sector Advisory Committee with Calgary Economic Development.

John believes that the best solutions are built with knowledge, experience, and education. In 2012, he sought his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University while working at CBRE. Shortly after graduating, John was invited to create and teach a course for the University of Calgary’s MBA program lecturing in Real Estate Finance and Development. He regularly speaks on panels, moderates industry events, contributes to industry publications and media stories, and is frequently asked to act as a subject matter expert, believing that sharing knowledge and experience is essential to building a better industry and a better Calgary.

John’s background as a community builder and educator gives him the unmatched ability to solve problems for his clients in a way that his competitors simply cannot. He uses his relationships, experience, education, and superior market knowledge to ensure that his clientele receives best-in-class results – every time. While he is recognized for his leadership in tenant representation market share with numerous awards and acknowledgments by CBRE and the Calgary commercial real estate industry at large, he considers his growing list of loyal clients as confirmation of his results.

Beyond CBRE, John contributes to various local charitable organizations, including an annual event for Make-A-Wish Canada, and enjoys spending time with his family in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
