Developing a wide ranging expertise in everything to do with real estate, projects, relocations and facilities does not come easily or quickly. Nor does it come from a myopic focus on any single piece of the puzzle. But it does come from a wide-ranging world view and variety of experiences, (both domestic and international)  that brings together people, processes, diplomacy and demanding detail, from many perspectives, contributing to an ability to manipulate that Rubric’s Cube to a successful and profitable result.
