Frank Quinn is a Managing Director with CBRE, covering west Tennessee and Mississippi, with offices in Memphis and Jackson. He’s held the role since 2016, returning to CBRE as market leader. During his extensive career, Quinn has represented both landlords and tenants in their leasing efforts, acquired sites for clients, as well as represented owners in the sale of investment properties. Today, as Managing Director, he’s passionate about shaping the next generation of real estate professionals.

CBRE Group Inc. is the world’s largest commercial real estate services and investment firm. For the past 30 years, CBRE has been a recognized market leader across Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas, offering clients full-service and comprehensive real estate solutions with an unmatched global platform. Its professionals combine extensive market knowledge and technological resources to provide their clients with the most informed and inclusive real estate services in the Mid-South.

CBRE’s Memphis office is committed to community. Under Quinn’s leadership, CBRE takes an active role in the activities of the Greater Memphis Chamber, the Chairman’s Circle and the Commercial Real Estate Owner’s Alliance.

Originally from Jackson, Miss., Quinn graduated from University of Mississippi. Early in his career in Texas he was in the oil and gas industry, but soon felt drawn to real estate. He’ll admit it took countless interviews to finally land that first opportunity. Since then, he’s held top positions with Trammel Crow Company and CBRE | Memphis, the former affiliate office. Prior to returning to Memphis, he was Principal of SPUR Commercial in Austin, Texas, where he specialized in site acquisition, investment sales and tenant representation.

Outside of work, Quinn serves as Treasurer of the Board of Directors and Finance Committee Chairperson for Regional One Health Foundation in Memphis.


The Chairman’s Circle is made up of local leaders whose investment in the Chamber drives transformational change in Memphis. With more than 100 members representing more than 100,000 employees, members of the Chairman’s Circle use their collective strengths as community and business leaders to create a clear path to positive change in Memphis and the Mid-South.
