Mike Cook is a member of the Occupier Services division for the CBRE Indianapolis office. Mr. Cook has been a leader in the development of strategic and transactional advisory for more than 20 years on a global basis. He joined CBRE in 2013.
He has completed a wide range of strategic planning and transaction assignments including sale/leasebacks, synthetic structures, site acquisition and dispositions (lease and fee simple). Michael has continued to achieve flexible, low-cost solutions which transcend beyond traditional brokerage services, culminating in 200 office transactions and 300 manufacturing/industrial/distribution assignments, in total valued at over $1.3 billion in 40 states and 15 countries.
As a collaborator internally and a strategic account manager for several US and global clients throughout his tenure as an Executive Vice President & Managing Director with DTZ (f/k/a UGL Equis from 1996 - 2013), Michael brought benchmark and metric creation to the forefront of budgeting and business planning practices of his clients. Such benchmarks for office and industrial uses include true occupancy cost (capital and recurring per FTE), internal business line and region comparison, revenue per cubic foot and per dock door and FF&E costs per employee. This process has allowed his clients to save millions of dollars by curbing inefficiencies and establishing a forward thinking rationale to every aspect of occupancy solutions.
