By John Morris, Head of Logistics & Industrial Services, Americas
Leading, and winning, in industrial real estate is not optional, and not something we take lightly. It’s serious business, and it is in our DNA. Our occupier and owner clients depend upon our expertise and our platform each and every day. We truly believed, and now know to be true, that the collaboration, talent, coverage and institutional knowledge that emerged from our newly integrated firm would win the day.
When we reviewed the third party industry data that conclusively demonstrated and documented our No. 1 position, we knew our model was working. Post merger, our clients are staying with us, and more prospects are willing to work with a new leader.
So while we celebrate our market share accomplishment, we must pause to thank our valued clients and the industrial professionals upon whom they depend. Cushman & Wakefield’s professionals are why we wake up running and do as much as we can to help your efforts each day. We are proud to be your partners. Thank you.
Most importantly, we plan to continue to lead from the front. We are actively recruiting the best in the business. We are expanding our skills and talent, especially across crucial sectors like eCommerce, F&B, 3PL, BTS, ports/intermodal, logistics and supply chain. We know tomorrow brings new challenges and new opportunities, and we expect to be ready.
