FLORIDA, December 10, 2018 – Cushman & Wakefield is pleased to announce that Mike Agnew will now serve as Senior Managing Director of Asset Services in Florida. With this promotion, Agnew will oversee the firm’s statewide Asset Services operation, which employs 260 professionals and currently encompasses 327 office, industrial and retail properties comprising more than 42 million square feet of space.
Agnew brings 25 years of experience with Cushman & Wakefield to this new position. He has served in leadership roles with the firm’s Asset Services division for the majority of his career, demonstrating proven excellence in helping clients maximize property value and achieve their long-term real estate goals.
“In my career I have had the honor of seeing Cushman & Wakefield evolve into a leading commercial real estate firm, both in Florida and on a global scale,” said Agnew. “In taking on this new role with the firm, it will be my priority to uphold and encourage Cushman & Wakefield’s culture of excellence and commitment to service so it is felt and embraced by both our employees and clients.”
Agnew is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in journalism. He began his real estate career in title insurance as the director of marketing for a start-up, multi-branch organization in Fort Myers, Florida. Following this, he was a regional manager for Westford Asset Management, Inc, where his management portfolio included office, retail and multifamily assets throughout the Southeast.
He came to Cushman & Wakefield in 1993 as a Portfolio Manager and was responsible for the management of retail shopping centers, office buildings, industrial/warehouse facilities and facility management assignments. As the firm continued to grow its management portfolio, Agnew was subsequently promoted to Director of Florida Asset Services, which involved broader profit-and-loss and market responsibilities, compliance, best practices, staff development and training and business development. As Senior Managing Director, Agnew will maintain many of these roles with greater responsibility for the firm’s overall success and strategic growth.
“Mike’s experience with our firm, our people and our clients makes him the perfect fit for this position,” said Larry Richey, Managing Principal for Cushman & Wakefield in Florida. “Working with the rest of our Florida leadership, we have full confidence in Mike to further build upon Cushman & Wakefield’s status as Florida’s Asset Services leader.”
Cushman & Wakefield has recognized Agnew for his service on several occasions during his tenure. He was named a Top Asset Services Professional in 2001 and 2004 and received the Service Excellence Award in 2003. In 2007, he was honored as the Most Valuable Player for Florida.
