|I started in the NYC office of C&W in 2006; I had been working in Dallas at the Staubach Company for 8 years, and was looking for both a professional challenge and personal change. There was a position available in the Manhattan headquarters that needed someone with my specialty. I interviewed and got the position. My specialty is representing occupiers of space, and advising these clients on how to best structure a transaction to maximize the benefit to tax, cash and their financial statements position. We do that via looking at a company’s credit and arbitrage the capital markets and the real estate market via executions such as sale leasebacks, synthetic leases, and other creative solutions.
