#47 - David Cairns, VP of Office Leasing at CBRE Canada and Co-Founder of CBRE Forward
Join in for a conversation with David Cairns, VP of Office Leasing at CBRE Canada and Co-Founder of CBRE Forward. CBRE is a commercial real estate service company and with my own limited experience of commercial real estate, David thankfully creates a picture of the real estate value chain for me early in the podcast. Prior to his successful real estate career, David was a professional poker player. Having been raised by a single-parent household with an entrepreneurial father, David learned to be an independent competitor early. This transpired from being a competitive skier to the competitive world of poker where he earned $200K+ while in university. We explore the 16 hour daily grinds that people don't see on TV, the emotional roller coaster that resembles a venture capital career on steroids and how this experience prepared David to rise from an administrative position to a successful VP in real estate and an intrapreneur.
