CB Richard Ellis named “Global Superstar”

Global advisory is the only commercial real estate firm to earn this distinction

Dubai, April 19 2007 – CB Richard Ellis, the largest real estate advisory worldwide, has been included in the “Global Superstar” list complied by Forbes magazine after a recent survey of firms that have redefined industry standards.

The Global Superstars are picked from among the ‘Forbes Global 2000’, a list of global companies with a composite score based on sales, profits, assets and market value. From the Global 2000 list, only 130 qualify for "Global Superstar" status.

CB Richard Ellis is one of five companies (and the only commercial real estate services firm) to earn this distinction in the Business Services category, the others being Manpower, Moody's, Robert Half International and World Fuel Services.

The Forbes "Global Superstars" are big companies that are "fast-growing, adroit and well-managed" and that "set the benchmarks for their respective industries." Forbes editors selected firms that have size and growth as its two attributes; firms that are global superstars in every sense. CB Richard Ellis was the only commercial real estate firm to earn this distinction from the business services and supplies list.

“Being endorsed by one of the most authentic financial publication like Forbes confirms the class, quality and dependability that comes with CB Richard Ellis’ services, “said Nicholas Maclean, Managing Director of CB Richard Ellis Middle East Ltd.

CB Richard Ellis Group and its service have been winning accolades from industry publications and watchdogs, with the company maintaining its leading edge in virtually all global markets. The month of March 2007 saw CBRE being ranked #16 on ‘BusinessWeek 50’, an annual report that turns the spotlight on top performers from the Standard & Poor’s 500 index in 2006.

“It adds further significant value to CB Richard Ellis’ name to be placed alongside market leaders and reputed names and makes us further committed to maintain the provision of quality service to our clients in the region,” concluded Maclean.
