Rene Soto, a 15-year real estate industry veteran, has joined Charles Dunn Company as a senior managing director in the brokerage firm’s Glendale office.

Soto, who previously was a managing director for Newmark Knight Frank in downtown Los Angeles, will focus on tenant representation in the Tri-Cities—Glendale, Pasadena and Burbank—as well as the greater Los Angeles region.

Charles Dunn CEO Chris Cooper said in a statement that the brokerage firm has been focusing on expanding its tenant representation services and will continue to heavily recruit brokers this year.

Bill Boyd, who heads the Glendale office, said Soto will help grow his office’s tenant representation business and increase its market share in the Tri-Cities.
