Michael B. Cohen and Suzanne Mulvee have been promoted to senior positions at CoStar's Property and Portfolio Research (PPR) division. Formerly senior real estate strategists, Cohen was named Director of Advisory Services, and Mulvee was named Director of Research, Retail. Both have been with PPR since 2003.
As Director of Advisory Services, Cohen will manage relationships with PPR’s advisory clients to deliver custom market analysis, relative value, strategic planning and custom research solutions. An experienced strategist and consultant, Cohen has played an instrumental role in enhancing PPR’s sector expertise, and has been recognized for his research on the U.S. housing market.
In her new role as Director of Research, Retail, Mulvee will continue to run advisory engagements, expanding the scope of her responsibilities into analytic product development for the retail sector, including micro market, retail sub-type and demographic analysis. A long-time retail expert, Mulvee regularly discusses economic trends in the retail sector as a conference speaker, author and media source.
PPR Managing Director Hans Nordby said the promotions, along with several recent strategic hires in the office, multifamily and industrial groups, demonstrate the firm's commitment to the strongest possible leadership team to serve its clients.
"We have effectively assembled a deep bench of seasoned PPR veterans and best-in-breed analysts to lead our research efforts, and we look forward to leveraging their talent to advance our clients’ business interests," said Nordby.
PPR’s management team combines the institutional and subject-matter expertise of long-time PPR analysts, including Dr. Ruijue Peng, Cohen and Mulvee, with the industry and research expertise of more recent hires, including Walter Page, Rene Circ and Dr. Luis Mejia.
