Griffin Cogorno Cogorno: “I hear daily about large CRE portfolios going to sale because the siblings don’t have an interest and would rather cash out.”

IRVINE, CA—There is undoubtedly a void in second- and third-generation offspring wanting to take over the family business, but there is also a huge void of CRE executives ages 40 to 50 since the recession flushed them out, executives tell GlobeSt.com. Griffin Cogorno, VP of client development at Unire Real Estate Group says he been hearing of the impending potential epidemic coming when all the Baby Boomers begin to retire, creating a possible serious gap in the retiring group of leaders and the next generation. Moreover, many companies don’t have a succession plan or next generation of top-level executives to steer the company.
