CB Richard Ellis on International winning streak

Reflecting the strength and breadth of its work across all sectors, CB Richard Ellis has this week collected a hat trick of international awards helping further strengthen the firm’s position as a leading global adviser.

CBRE was last night (10th October) the recipient of the prestigious Exceptional Achievement Award at the 2007 MPF European Practice Management Awards in London, in recognition of its outstanding contribution to the professional services sector. As a hotly contested award category, CBRE faced stiff competition from some of the world’s foremost legal, accountancy and business advisory firms, notwithstanding the fact that this is the first year that the property sector has been represented. This Award means that CBRE joins the hallowed ranks of other revered business leaders, all whom are previous winners, including Deloitte, Slaughter and May, Allen & Overy, KPMG and Weil Gotshal & Manges.

Mike Strong, Chairman and CEO of CBRE EMEA, commented: “We are delighted to have received this award from the MPF, and the recognition it carries with it of all within CBRE who have contributed to making our vision of becoming a global player a reality. At the heart of our management philosophy has always been a strong commitment to organic growth and the development of our people, and a policy to merge with only the very best firms."

This Exceptional Achievement Award also comes in a week when the firm has been acknowledged at the European Property Awards 2007 with awards for ”European Retail Agency Team of the Year” and the “European Industrial Agency Team of the Year.”

As winners of the European Retail Agency Team of the Year, the CBRE team attributes its success to its knowledge of, and its ability to make international retail markets more accessible for clients, combined with a tightly coordinated approach to cross-border business.

With a mission to make the global industrial markets more accessible for clients and the industry at large, CBRE’s Industrial Agency Team has enjoyed strong growth that has established the company as the clear market leader in Europe.

Strong concludes: “Each of these awards is a true recognition of the quality and commitment of our people. People who are dedicated to providing clients with outstanding levels of service and expertise across all markets."
