Cushman & Wakefield is pleased to announce that Eric Carville has joined the firm as director—market lead of the Project Development Services group in Austin. He makes this transition after 36 years in the industry, including 12 years as senior vice president in the central Texas region at Staubach/JLL. While there, Carville oversaw the entire spectrum of design and construction related services, including pre-lease/purchase evaluations, strategic programming and due diligence/site evaluations, design and construction management, and move-in and project close-out. He has completed over 22 million square feet of product totaling more than $1 billion.
According to Spencer Hayes, executive managing director and managing principal of the Cushman & Wakefield Austin office, “Eric Carville is one of the most respected PDS professionals in our market. We’re thrilled to have him join our growing team of CRE professionals, use his stellar expertise to deliver superior service for our clients, and grow our PDS business.”
It was Cushman & Wakefield’s client-first approach which Carville said made the choice to switch firms most compelling. “This was the only firm I considered joining,” he stated. “The primary reason I came aboard is the culture of oneness I saw and heard when meeting with the brokers and staff. It truly is a supportive team environment working together to reach the best possible outcome for the clients.”
In his new role, Carville will approach each project by learning what is most important to a client and then making that a reality for them. Whether it’s to create an office environment that retains and attracts the brightest minds or shaping and leading the process to a successful outcome. “The most exciting thing about what I do,” he said, “is assembling the team of best-in-class providers that work in unison to achieve the shared goals of the client. It’s incredibly rewarding to have a client pull me aside after the project is completed and say how much they appreciate the team’s work in providing a world-class solution for them and their employees.”
Carville earned a Bachelor of Science degree from The State University of New York. During his highly-successful career with JLL, The Staubach Company, CBRE, and Studley he was a Top Achiever over a dozen times, and a Gold Achiever four times.
