CHARLOTTE — Long-time Charlotte commercial real estate mogul Roger Cobb has jumped the NAI Southern Real Estate ship after 14 years with the company to join rival Selwyn Property Group as senior vice president of brokerage services, Selwyn announced this week.
Cobb started his career in 1998 at the Charlotte-based Southeastern U.S. office of commercial real estate giant NAI Global. He rose to become senior vice president and broker-in-charge for NAI Southern, which has roots dating back to 1899 and is the oldest continually operating commercial real estate firm in Charlotte, Cobb said.
Princeton, N.J.-based NAI Global was sold earlier this year for an undisclosed price to C-III Partners of Irving, Texas, but the NAI Global name was retained.
Cobb has been involved in notable real estate deals in the Charlotte area. In September, he had a hand in leasing the old Providence Café building at 110 Perrin Place to the owners of the new Napa on Providence restaurant.
In addition to his work at NAI Southern, Cobb has served as president of the Charlotte Region Commercial Board of Realtors and on the board of the North Carolina Association of Realtors.
At Selwyn, Cobb will be charged with focusing on owners and tenants in the Midtown area of Charlotte, Selwyn spokeswoman Ashley McMillan said.
Selwyn specializes in the industrial, office and retail development and brokerage business in the Southeastern U.S.
