|With the world constantly changing, how has your job, or client’s job changed over the past 10 years?|
|I would compare the changes in my job over the past 10 years to be very similar to the skyline of downtown Denver: the growth is unbelievable. There has been no ceiling within Cushman & Wakefield to expand my knowledge and achieve the goals I set. C&W continues to be on the cutting edge of change, and has provided me with tools to make my time more efficient and create new ways to help make us #1.|
|Why do YOU work here at Cushman & Wakefield and not somewhere else?|
|When I started at C&W, I thought I knew what I wanted to do. However, as I grew and learned more about Commercial Real Estate, it wasn’t long until I realized I loved brokerage. I loved solving problems, helping people out, and supporting the growth of others and our firm. However, what keeps me at the firm are two important things: the people and C&W’s commitment to employees. C&W does not just hire anyone; they hire good people who have a vision. I think it is really hard to walk through any of our offices and find a group of “negative” people who do nothing but complain. The people I work with throughout C&W are great and have become lifelong friends.
C&W invests in us, the employees. We have great office space designed with all the workplace strategy ideas that we promote to our clients. The firm invests and encourages employees to live a healthy lifestyle. The leadership makes me feel important and valued.
|What solution, achievement or moment are you most proud of while either working at Cushman & Wakefield, or in your personal life?|
|To work with one company for so many years makes me really proud. I love my job so much, and believe in all we have built and continue to build. I love bringing in new talent in hopes they will feel the same energy and passion I have for our business. Over the many years with the firm, I have learned the value of setting goals and making them happen.
One goal I set 3 years ago, I accomplished in 2016. I spent a year raising money and promoting the Ironman Foundation, and racing for individuals who could not take on the challenge. I was the top fundraiser for Ironman in the Americas for 2016, and was given an invite to race at the World Championships in Kona on October 14, 2017. I am still in shock that I will be out with the world’s best triathletes. For every mile I race, I am doing so to make a difference in someone’s life, someone less fortunate or unable to compete. Mostly though, I race to show everyone that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
