Firm Works to Strengthen Depth of Industrial Teams in Key Markets
PHOENIX, AZ – July 5, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Jackie Orcutt has joined the team at Cushman & Wakefield of Arizona, Inc. in Phoenix, as an associate in the commercial real estate services firm’s Industrial Group. Orcutt’s focus includes tenant representation assignments and project leasing, primarily in the Sky Harbor Airport and southeast valley submarkets.
A resident of Phoenix, Orcutt is working with Cushman & Wakefield’s Mills-Detmer team, which includes Bo Mills, Mark Detmer, Will Strong and Courtney Garrett.

“The Phoenix industrial market is fast-paced,” Orcutt noted. “I love staying connected to the pulse of the market, and industrial commerce seems to spearhead these exciting changes. In one week I find myself catering to a world of local entrepreneurs living the American Dream, while also working with some of the leading developers and investors in today’s market.”
