WE ARE EXCITED TO INTRODUCE THIS QUARTER’S INFLUENCERS.
Brandon Aitken Portfolio Manager Transaction Management, APAC Global Occupier Services
Years with the company: One year in Singapore, two and a half years in Toronto, three four-month work terms in Toronto Notable industry achievement: One of my most notable industry achievements was being part of the all Cushman & Wakefield team to win the Third Annual NAIOP Development Challenge. As part of a team of five, we were the first (and only) team to ever represent one company and take home the top prize. Our award winning submission and presentation was created by our team who represented the Brokerage, Valuation & Advisory, along with GOS, working together on a single goal. What hobbies do you enjoy in your personal time? Living in the heart of South East Asia provides me with the ability to travel extensively and enjoy the ocean, beaches and beautiful weather that this area of the world has to offer. In my free time I enjoy going to the beach to go wakeboarding, surfing or sailing – Singapore or abroad. What would people be surprised to learn about you? Many people are surprised to learn that I spent ten seasons (over a period of ten years) working part-time decorator, decorating commercial office buildings, hotels and malls for Christmas and the Holiday Season. Working on evenings and weekends, I installed some of the tallest, largest and most extensive Christmas displays in Toronto, Canada. As part of this, I have my boom and scissor lift license, which I am sure will come in handy again one day!
