Current Parent
Committee: Plant Chair, Executive
Mark Beffort began his commercial real estate career and in-depth involvement in Oklahoma City in 1985 after graduating from Washburn University.
After several years as a successful commercial real estate broker, he began adding office investments to his personal portfolio and holds a vested interest in downtown Oklahoma City through his ownership interest in Leadership Square, Oklahoma Tower, Corporate Tower, City Place, and the City Center East Garage. Mr. Beffort's leadership has driven Newmark Grubb Levy Strange Beffort to successfully manage over 7.6 million square feet worth in excess of over $815 million with a real estate investment firm covering four markets including the Oklahoma City and Tulsa markets and the Rogers, Arkansas and McKinney, Texas markets. Mr. Beffort is personally invested in approximately 40% of the company’s current portfolio, and he expects to grow the real estate investments over the next five to seven years to well over $2 billion in value. Mr. Beffort aggressively pursues development of young entrepreneurs through various avenues including his recent financial contribution and direct involvement in the development of an entrepreneurial business program at Washburn University located in Topeka, Kansas.
