Titan of the Day: Greg Schementi

Greg Schementi began his real estate career leading brokerage and business development at a tenant-only boutique real estate advisory firm. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, he ultimately ran the tenant representation practice at Cushman & Wakefield with a revenue of $1 billion with a 2,000+ staff.

From Cushman & Wakefield, Schementi joined Cresa as president to build upon the foundation of a tenant-only advisory firm and continue the company's growth into a unique and differentiated company in a crowded industry with little differentiation between competitors.

“Greg’s passion around growing Cresa comes from the firm’s commitment to dedicate all resources to one client type (the occupier),” said his colleagues.

Cresa, a real estate advisory and brokerage company, is the world’s leading occupier-centric commercial real estate firm with over 50 offices across North America and capabilities to serve clients globally through a partnership with Knight Frank. The firm has 1,075 employees working across six primary service lines: transaction management, workplace solutions, project management, lease administration, consulting and capital strategies.

“What distinguishes Greg as a titan in the commercial real estate industry is his unwavering commitment to building businesses that transform how work gets done inside the organizations he leads, while investing and growing the capabilities and capacity of the people inside these same organizations,” said his staff. “He has committed himself and the entire organization to a path that will meet this extraordinary moment in our industry’s history.”
