Ajay Malhotra – Vice President, Advisory & Transaction Services at CBRE
Ajay Malhotra is currently a commercial real estate broker at CBRE. The son of a career diplomat, Ajay is fluent in the language and culture of technology, global business and commercial real estate, and has been dubbed a globetrotting “universal translator.” After 20 years in the tech industry—from microprocessor design to enterprise software, predictive analytics and clean technology—he now helps tech startups navigate the search for office space in Portland. Ajay has walked the very path his client’s traverse—as a senior executive at public multinationals like Intel and Cadence and in the trenches at cashstrapped startups raising VC money. Ajay is active in the angel and mentoring community, helped bring TiE to Oregon, and is on the boards of The Technology Association of Oregon and the Japan America Society of Oregon.
