CBRE announced that Mike Wilhelm has joined the firm as a senior vice president focused on office leasing in downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul.
A 25-year commercial real estate industry veteran, Wilhelm spent the last 15 years with Zeller Realty Group, most recently as senior vice president where he led the Minneapolis office leasing team. He has completed more than 1,000 transactions totaling more than 8 million square feet, primarily in the downtowns of Minneapolis and St. Paul, throughout his career.
He joins the CBRE team of Brian Wasserman, Jim Freytag and Teresa Borgen to expand and strengthen landlord representation in both downtowns. Wilhelm is returning to CBRE after more than 15 years away—he first joined the firm as a senior associate on the office leasing team in 1997. Prior to that, he spent five years in office leasing, sales and property management at the Shelard Group.
His key clients have included Invesco, Unilev Corp., PIMCO and Carlson Real Estate.
Wilhelm holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and business from Macalester College and earned an MBA from the University of Minnesota.
