ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield plans a $17.4 million expansion in St. Louis.
Gov. Jay Nixon calls it a “big win” for the local economy: “As a global leader in real estate services, with employees in more than 60 countries around the globe, this company could have grown anywhere. But, Missouri’s strong workforce and outstanding business climate, made Missouri the right choice for the next chapter in this company’s continued growth.”
Brian Ungles, with Cushman & Wakefield, says his team of 900 employees, already based in St. Louis, made a clear case for adding 600 new jobs.
“The customer service, the Show-Me attitude, we talked about that. We have a tendency here to under-promise and over-deliver,” he says.
Ungles says the firm’s expansion will involve jobs in information technology, accounting, and other financial matters involving real estate.
The new office space will be in Town and Country.
