Cambra will report to Dan Broderick, Cushman & Wakefield’s Regional Managing Principal for the Southwest.

Cambra fills a director role previously held by Nick DiPaolo, who relocated to Cushman & Wakefield’s offices in Greater Los Angeles in November where he now serves as the firm’s Director of Brokerage for that market.
Broderick noted, “Following Nick’s move, we thoroughly evaluated candidates as to identify and select an ideal replacement needed for this critical role in San Diego. We believe Larry suits this position perfectly and we could not be more excited to have his talent and experience in helping guide and support our brokerage services, as well as to be reunited with C&W from a professional and personal standpoint.”

He added, “Cushman & Wakefield is a definitive market leader in San Diego, as well as across the globe. I am proud to help continue to drive and grow performance for our team locally, and as we embark into 2019. I am excited at the many opportunities that await us in this expanding market still ripe with greater real estate and economic potential.”
