Alliance Promises Growth to Pyramid Brokerage and Economic Development Opportunities for Upstate New York
Beginning August 28, Pyramid Brokerage Company will become the exclusive alliance partner for all of Upstate New York with Cushman & Wakefield, the world's largest privately held real estate services firm.
“As a firm, we see opportunity in Upstate New York and we’re committed to offering our clients best-in-class service to capitalize on the region’s continued revitalization and growth,” said Dave Lawton, executive managing director of Cushman & Wakefield’s Alliance Program, an association of 22 leading regional commercial real estate firms in strategic U.S. markets. “We asked Pyramid Brokerage to join the Cushman & Wakefield Alliance because of their already-established dominance across the entire region. We believe that the combined strength of our two companies offers clients premier local and global expertise and that this association will benefit the greater economic development of Upstate New York.”
Cushman & Wakefield’s strong relationships with Fortune 500 corporations and major global firms will open the door to many new opportunities for Pyramid Brokerage while creating the potential to bring more businesses and jobs to Upstate New York.
“With its size and reach, Cushman & Wakefield plays a major role in the site selection process for major clients from around the world,” said Robert Berkey, COO of Pyramid Brokerage. “Cushman & Wakefield also gives us greater capabilities and knowledge, more contacts and staff support—all of which will enable us to provide bigger and better services to our clients.”
For many years, Cushman & Wakefield has worked with Pyramid Brokerage on several individual projects. The alliance will provide Pyramid Brokerage with superior and more extensive resources as well as more business relationships in major markets including: New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Tokyo and Beijing.
“To be invited by Cushman & Wakefield and join an exclusive alliance is both a tremendous honor and a significant opportunity for Pyramid Brokerage,” Berkey said. “Only 22 other firms in the United States are members of this alliance, and we’re pleased to be a member of this exclusive group.”
