Microsoft wanted to create better consistency across its global real estate portfolio. To achieve this, Microsoft’s Real Estate & Facilities (RE&F) team conceived a first-of-its-kind in the industry approach known as the Integrator Model.
Global Commercial Real Estate Services firm, CBRE, won the bid to manage the Integrator Model, embedding itself within RE&F with the charge of creating global consistency and sourcing best in class teams from Jones Lange LaSalle, Cushman & Wakefield, and Colliers International.
Mann oversaw the Latin America portfolio and worked in concert with partners in a complex, international environment, providing comprehensive oversight of 42 sites in 21 countries. In Buenos Aires, Mann’s management of the competitive bid process lead to reduced fees to Microsoft by 40% below market.
The pioneering efforts of RE&F and the rigorous methodology introduced by CBRE lead to its selection by Microsoft as Fiscal Year 2013 Service Provider of the Year for Market Agility.
