May 23, 2018

McLean, Virginia – May 23, 2018Cresa Global Inc was recognized as the 2018 Private Company Deal Team of the Year by ACG National Capital.

Cresa Global, Inc. was selected from a pool of the most accomplished and successful deal teams in the D.C. business community by the 2018 Corporate Growth Awards Committee. The award was presented at a black tie gala on May 22, 2018.

“Every year, ACG National Capital receives over a hundred nominations for its Corporate Growth Awards”, said Marc Marlin, the 2018 Corporate Growth Awards Committee Chair and a Managing Director at KippsDeSanto & Co. “Of these exceptional nominees, it’s exciting to celebrate and recognize some of the region’s fastest growing and most successful businesses and deal teams. Cresa Global Inc truly stood tall as a leader in corporate growth in 2017.”

The ACG National Capital Corporate Growth Awards recognize the enterprises and individuals in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area’s business community that have exhibited excellence in corporate growth and dealmaking over the past year.

The award recognized Cresa’s team effort in merging 19 independently owned and managed commercial real estate advisory firms into a previous non-existent entity now called Cresa Global, Inc. With the help of Baker Tilly and Greenberg Traurig, the Cresa management team navigated a complex transaction process that unified and further strengthened Cresa’s business platform as the largest global occupier-only commercial real estate advisory firm.

“We were told that this merger was the first of its kind. It was a complex process that would have been impossible if not for the dedication and commitment of the Cresa partner offices and our friends from Baker Tilly and Greenberg Traurig,” said Rich Rhodes, Managing Principal of the Washington DC office and Cresa Global board member. The merger has provided Cresa a stronger platform for growth, value-add, access to capital and a competitive edge in its mission as occupier advocate.
