CBRE Group, Inc. today announced that it has been recognized as the #4 outsourcing services provider across all industries, and is once again the highest-ranked commercial real estate services company, according to the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals’ (IAOP) Global Outsourcing 100 for 2013. The firm remains the only commercial real estate services firm to be ranked in the top 10, a feat it has accomplished in four of the past five years.
“Our continued strong performance among the world’s best outsourcing companies is testimony to how our people are delivering consistently superior service,” said Bill Concannon, CBRE’s chief executive officer of Global Corporate Services. “Their focus on excellence in serving our clients has created a distinct advantage for CBRE in the global outsourcing market.” 
“CBRE’s Global Corporate Services (GCS), as described by Wall Street Journal, is ‘the world’s leading provider of real estate services to Fortune 500 companies’.  In today’s competitive business environment, multinational corporations are increasingly turning to services provider like CBRE to manage their real estate portfolios.  In China, our outsourcing business is built upon four aspects, occupier consulting which focuses on long term, complex portfolio or metro planning, transaction management which covers all leasing aspects within a clients portfolio, project management which can range from a fit out of a small office all the way to a build to suit and facility management for the day to day operation of facilities,” said Helmut Weih, Executive Director, GCS, CBRE in China.
“Through our integrated service approach in China, our winning team delivers superior and measurable results for clients, that not only empower them to focus on their key business, but also provide them the optimum support for their workplace strategy by maximizing value from their real estate investment,” added Weih.
The Global Outsourcing 100 ranks the top outsourcing service providers across all industries. The rankings are determined by an independent panel of judges based on characteristics such as size and growth rate, customer references, demonstrated competencies, and management capabilities. The IAOP panel credited CBRE for particular strengths in customer references, company recognitions, employee management and executive leadership. Last year, IAOP and the Information Services Group (ISG) also honored CBRE for its leadership in corporate responsibility, with the first IAOP/ISG Global Outsourcing Social Responsibility Impact Award. 
"As moderate economic growth continues, choosing the right outsourcing partners is critically important," said IAOP Chairman Michael Corbett. “By focusing on its clients and insisting on consistently excellent service, CBRE has distinguished itself as an outsourcing service provider of choice in the commercial real estate industry."
CBRE provides a broad range of commercial real estate services on a global basis. The company was responsible for more than $189.8 billion of property sales and lease transactions in 2012, and managed more than 3.3 billion sq. ft. (including properties managed by affiliates) of commercial properties and corporate facilities as of December 31, 2012. The Company signed 46 long-term outsourcing contracts, including 22 new accounts, during the first quarter of 2013.
