Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm will add 600 new jobs in St. Louis by 2019. To support this growth, Cushman & Wakefield has leased 92,000 square feet at 575 Maryville Centre.
With this expansion, Cushman & Wakefield will earn Missouri Statewide Works incentives based on the creation of 600 new, full-time jobs and a significant investment in real and personal property.
“This expansion is a clear indication of our dedication to the St. Louis community, our employees and our clients,” said Joe Stettinius, Cushman & Wakefield Chief Executive, Americas. “Our employees in St. Louis have played a crucial role in the growth of our firm, from both a local and national perspective. While we are the industry leader in the local market, our teams in St. Louis also are critical to our ability to provide services across the Americas and globally.”
The company is growing and consolidating its offices in St. Louis for expansion of its Global Occupier Services and Property Client Accounting groups, which serve national and global clients, as well as expansion of shared services, including Human Resources, IT and Accounting.
“We have built industry leading teams here who manage some of the largest and most complex real estate portfolios in the world,” said Greg Schuster, Executive Managing Director, Global Occupier Services. “Our client centric-culture, continued growth and investment in innovation and technology are creating outstanding opportunities for our employees.”
Cushman & Wakefield’s legacy extends beyond 90 years in St. Louis’s commercial real estate sector and broader business and philanthropic community. The firm is the No. 1 leasing and property management firm in St. Louis, and is currently home to 900 Cushman & Wakefield employees.
“We are focused on creating a center of excellence to help us attract and retain the region’s top talent,” said Brian Ungles, St. Louis Managing Principal. “This is a tremendous opportunity to build on our momentum here in St. Louis and as a company in our mission to be the world’s leading commercial real estate services firm.”
