Steve Gebing has solidified a reputation for approaching the business of multifamily brokerage with unparalleled and renewed energy coupled with a desire to know the intricacies of the market better than his competition. Prior to joining Marcus & Millichap in February 2006, Mr. Gebing spent nearly seven years working for IBM, where he conceived and led a worldwide, cross-functional team that developed business continuance and disaster recovery plans for clients in the wake of 9/11. The team’s work generated more than $415 million in revenue, and became a focal point for the division - earning Gebing several promotions and eventual relocation to IBM’s New York headquarters.
In his new role as worldwide sales and marketing manager for IBM’s emerging storage virtualization software, Mr. Gebing held responsibility for identifying new market opportunities, coordinating go-to-market activities, as well as developing, communicating, and strengthening the portfolio's value proposition. These efforts played a critical role in establishing IBM as the storage virtualization market leader by driving significant market penetration with over 1,300 sales in 40 countries and 20 industries, resulting in excess of $300M of revenue in an 18 month period of time. In his final assignment, Mr. Gebing served on a storage strategy task force where he was elected to formulate the storage group's emerging country strategy, aimed at capturing new markets in China, India, Brazil, and Russia.
Mr. Gebing graduated Summa Cum Laude from The University of Arizona with a B.S.B.A. in Management Information Systems and holds a M.S. degree in Science and Technology Commercialization from The University of Texas at Austin, where he was awarded the George Kozmetsky Award for Academic Excellence.
