"Through a collaborative effort a definitive capital plan for our campus buildings was established. It would have been IMPOSSIBLE to create this plan internally, so we are most appreciative and grateful for what CBRE Business Analytics was able to provide us."

- Ken Cornwell, Visa Global Corporate Real Estate
