Professional Experience

Mike Grosko is the Global Alliance Director for CBRE’s Global Workplace Solutions (GWS) account with a multinational energy oil & gas client, and has served in that role since 2016. He leads a global team of approximately 900 employees in the delivery of services to the client’s 20+ MSF of commercial office, industrial and mission critical facilities. Services provided include strategic consulting, facilities management, project management, transactions management, sourcing, PMO and portfolio administration services.

Under Mike's leadership, CBRE has implemented and profitably managed a principal, fixed-price FM contract that will deliver $125 million in cumulative savings to the client by year-end 2021. The savings have been achieved by transitioning and optimizing 1,200 vendor relationships, significantly increasing self-performed services, and reducing management layers and staffing. This has been accomplished while delivering on the client’s world-class safety expectations (for employee and third-party workforce) and driving steady improvements in employee engagement and customer satisfaction.

CBRE provides project management services for the client through a principal contracting model across 25+ countries, managing $85-130 million USD in annual project spend. The project management work for the client includes tenant buildouts and infrastructure programs for both industrial and commercial office facilities. Over the past year, the team of 53 full-time project managers have completed over 200 projects throughout the world and have utilized CBRE’s Kahua project management system and Vantage Analytics to provide streamlined project tracking and reporting.

CBRE’s Advisory & Transaction (A&T) service offerings for the client include transactions, advisory services (e.g., labor analytics, economic incentives) and portfolio administration. Our team covers all global regions of the 20 MSF portfolio. In the first 2.5 years of the new commercial office and industrial contract, we completed 130 assignments in 55 countries with $49M USD in client approved value add through leases, purchases, sales, sublease, buyouts, and appraisals across office, industrial, land, manufacturing, data center, and corporate residential asset types. The client satisfaction shows through 100% KPI performance on 400+ global leases. TransAct software and Vantage Analytics dashboards allow us to provide consistent global reporting and processes.

Prior to his current assignment, Mike served as Alliance Director for the Sprint GWS account. Mike previously led the pursuit and delivery of project management and/or transaction management services to multiple corporate clients including Shell, ConocoPhilips, Valero, Quanta Services, and MetLife. He also helped lead the start-up and transition of corporate services wins including FedEx Kinkos, Cingular, and 7-Eleven.
