“I’m so proud of what our team has accomplished - starting with creating a prototype and resulting in a full-fledged platform and services offering that is being so well received by our clients. For us, it’s important to create amazing hospitality experiences that resonate with clients, and this achievement is a great testament to our belief that magic happens when we blend digital and technology expertise with our extensive commercial real estate expertise,” said Chandra Dhandapani, CBRE’s Chief Digital & Technology Officer.
