CBRE’s Anthony Albanese Named to 40 Under 40 Class of 2017
DENVER – CBRE Group, Inc. announced today that Anthony Albanese has been named to the Denver Business Journal’s 40 under 40 Class of 2017. A first vice president with CBRE in Denver, Mr. Albanese was recognized for his professional accomplishments, civic leadership and commitment to community service.
“Anthony is simply one of the most-focused and hardest-working individuals in the industry. It’s great to see due recognition for his achievements,” said Pete Schippits, senior managing director and market leader for CBRE in Colorado. “I know his colleagues and clients would join me in saying it is inspiring to work with him every day and see the positive impact he is making on our community.”
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Denver Business Journal for this contribution and truly a pleasure to play a small part in the enhancement of both the Denver community and CBRE. Surrounded by such great energy, you can’t help but want to do your part,” said Mr. Albanese.
Mr. Albanese began his career in office tenant representation with CBRE, and, after working with Denver-area oil and gas companies, he helped to spearhead the creation of the CBRE Energy Facilities Group, which provides strategies to support energy companies as their need for commercial real estate evolves through industry expansion and contraction.
Today, Mr. Albanese specializes in downtown Denver office tenant representation and real estate portfolio strategy and project execution for energy companies across North America. Last year alone, he was involved in more than 1.5 million square feet of real estate requirements. In 2015 and 2016, he was named to the Denver Business Journal’s “Who’s Who in Energy” list and was the 2016 recipient of the “Future Industry Leader” Award at the annual Oil & Gas Awards – Rocky Mountain Region.
In terms of community service, Mr. Albanese is an active member of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, Downtown Denver Partnership, Western Energy Alliance (Board of Advisors), Denver Petroleum Club and the Denver Metro Commercial Association of REALTORS. Last fall he was elected President of Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation, a philanthropic fund-raising organization dedicated to empowering future philanthropists and raising money to help at-risk and disadvantaged children in the Denver area and throughout Colorado. In the summer of 2015, the Denver City Council approved Mayor Hancock’s nomination of Mr. Albanese to join the Board of Commissioners for the Denver Urban Renewal Authority, a quasi-governmental agency that works for safe and prosperous neighborhoods. The youngest member to ever serve on the Board, he helps advise on the sound growth and development of the City of Denver.
Mr. Albanese was selected from among 499 nominations for the Denver Business Journal’s 2017 Class of 40 under 40. Winners were chosen based on three criteria: business leadership, recognition of accomplishments and community involvement.
