Cushman & Wakefield distinguishes itself among its competitors, globally and locally, by our engagement in the communities where we do business. In the Cincinnati-Dayton region, not only are we the largest commercial real estate services firm, but we are the most active in supporting local causes important to our region and our employees.
In early June, Cushman & Wakefield fielded a team at the 7th annual Professional Leadership Network Dodgeball Challenge in memory of Joe Rippe Sr. Our sponsorship helped the Dan Beard Council young professional group raise more than $80,000 to help send inner-city youth to boy scout camp. Without this funding, many of these at-risk youth wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to go to camp. Our team consisted of Brian Quinn, Matt Jacob, Elliott Hartmann, Marcus Greene, Lauren Corbin, Tony Stephens and Louis Wright.
In addition to the team, C&W colleague Megan Ossenbeck served as co-chair of the event, which was held at Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine and generated a fair amount of good publicity.

The Dodgeball tournament support caps an active first six months of the year in which C&W supported many local causes, including the DePaul Cristo Rey High School Corporate Work Study Program, Freestore Foodbank, Mercy Mission Partners, the American Heart Association and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
