Inside View: Blake Hastings, CBRE Group Inc.

  • Updated: May 10, 2013 - 12:39 AM

After 10 years as a top office broker in the Phoenix market, Blake Hastings, 34, was looking to transition from dealmaker to manager. He found that opportunity as the new managing director of CBRE Group’s Minneapolis office, a position he started on Jan. 1. He’s responsible for all of the real estate services firm’s operations in Minnesota and oversees more than 150 real estate professionals. The Tulsa, Okla., native was most recently a senior vice president at Cassidy Turley/BRE in Phoenix. He has completed more than 800 transactions with a total value of $800 million during his career. While Hastings had never worked in the Twin Cities real estate market, he has local ties. His father-in-law is Pat Ryan, CEO of Minneapolis-based Ryan Cos. US Inc., a major developer/builder. Hastings succeeded Whit Peyton, a well-known industry veteran, who stepped down after running the office for more than two decades. Peyton stayed on through the transition and is actively involved in the company’s business development efforts in Minnesota.
