World Market Access

Global Business Consulting helps clients solve the complex challenges that reside at the intersection of business operations and real estate. The World Market Access practice specializes in assisting companies internationally to reduce their costs, minimize their risks and improve their overall operating efficiencies by optimizing the placement of their operations.

We work with large corporate occupiers to help them expand, redeploy, or consolidate their operations across the global marketplace. Our professionals assist your company in various ways, from a high-level, multimarket / country analysis to the development of site specific strategies. 

These services include:

Office solutions

We create and implement portfolio-wide office occupancy plans and location strategies that will help you from start up to break down.

Industrial/supply chain

You need a team that can analyze, develop, and implement a network-wide optimization of your manufacturing and distribution operations, and that possesses a thorough understanding of industrial investment decisions that lower costs, maximize operational requirements, and minimize risks.


Who can you rely on for help in placing retail outlets in optimal locations that reach your target demographics, maximize sales, and minimize labor and real estate costs? Rely on us. We are the industry leader in commercial retail real estate development.


To reduce your upfront capital expenditures and long-term operating costs, we secure national, regional, or local economic development incentives from governments, property owners, and service providers across the globe.
