Chad Brue

President & CEO of Brue Capital Partners

Chad BrueChad has been focused on the commercial real estate industry for 17+ years beginning his career in 1998 at Grubb & Ellis Company. After five years of working in the Investment Properties Division at Grubb & Ellis, Chad was recruited to CBRE, a Fortune 500 company and the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm, to form the Colorado Region’s Private Capital Group (PCG). Chad expanded the group’s market share in Colorado from near zero to over 23% in just three years, personally transacting on over $1 billion of commercial real estate properties.

Due to his success, CBRE’s senior executives took notice and promoted Chad to the Managing Director of PCG at a national level overseeing 180 brokers in 21 markets. During his five year tenure, he expanded PCG’s reach into 54 markets across the US and Canada consisting of 350 brokers and staff. At the peak, his team traded $6.2 billion in commercial real estate in a single year generating over $100 million in revenue to the firm. In 2008, Chad was promoted to Senior Managing Director making him the youngest person in the firm to achieve that that title worldwide.

Additional accolades include PCG's Broker of the Year, PCG's Innovator of the Year, PCG's Team of the Year and consistently finishing in the top 10 producing brokers in the Colorado Region. In 2007, the national publication of Real Estate Forum Magazine recognized Chad as one of their annual “Standout Stars.”

Since leaving CBRE and forming Brue Capital Partners, Chad has been acquiring commercial properties throughout the US with a focus on properties located in Colorado. Chad's extensive knowledge of commercial real estate and his vast network of contacts within the industry are invaluable to this effort and will serve the Company well.

Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
