Cushman & Wakefield Forms Strategic Alliance with Service-Disabled-Veteran-Owned Real Estate Services Provider
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 24, 2019--
Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) recently announced the formation of a strategic alliance with DHC Real Estate Services, LLC, a service-disabled-veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) founded by Jonathan Luttwak, a former U.S. Army captain and New York-based commercial real estate professional.
The alliance will enable public- and private-sector enterprises to increase their commitment to supplier diversity, and to meet state and federal mandates, while also maintaining access to the global, multi-disciplinary platform of services offered by Cushman & Wakefield.
“This alliance reaffirms our commitment to the military and veteran community, which is a core component of our corporate culture,” said Frank Stanley, Director of Veterans Programs at Cushman & Wakefield. “It also allows us to provide an outstanding solution for our clients who are looking to bolster their commitment to supplier diversity — particularly those looking to partner with a veteran-owned firm.”
DHC Real Estate Services was founded in 2018 by Luttwak, a combat veteran who started his commercial real estate career in brokerage services at Cushman & Wakefield. A graduate of West Point, Luttwak served as a U.S. Army officer, reaching the grade of captain. He was deployed to Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 and also supported operation Enduring Freedom in Kuwait following 9/11. He subsequently earned his MBA from Columbia University.
“I founded my business with a belief that real estate is at the heart of everything we do as a nation,” Luttwak said. “It is where we innovate, collaborate, live, work, govern and educate. This alliance enables me to provide value to clients while also empowering them with the full depth and breadth of Cushman & Wakefield’s global platform of services.”
DHC Real Estate Services has been certified as a SDVOSB by the state of New York and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Verification and Evaluation. Services provided through the firm’s alliance with Cushman & Wakefield include real estate leasing, acquisitions/dispositions, strategic consulting, property/facility management, valuation and project management.
Additionally, the Military Times recently announced that Cushman & Wakefield has been included on the publication’s annual “Best for Vets” list of 132 for profit, non-profit and governmental employers across the U.S. The firm was also selected as one of 198 companies across all industries to be named as a Top Veteran-Friendly Company by U.S. Veterans Magazine.
