“Our team is an agency leasing team that requires a great deal of collateral marketing materials to effectively promote our listings. This includes brochures, fact sheets, banners, boards, open house events, and the like. Every property requires specific branding and marketing themes in order to effectively position it within the market. Victoria and her team of graphics, communications and printing are crucial to making that happen. They bring creative ideas and materials to the table which has helped C&W to be the clear market leader in the Phoenix area.

From my projects & initiatives:
Project: Top Deals Dashboard
About: Leveraged new technology to create a Top Deals dashboard which provides up-to-date information and transparency between the activity of fee earners with marketing, accounting and executive management on new pursuits as well as identifying listings with large marketing budgets for executive management.
“This was a game changer!”
– Christie Veldhuizen | VP Operations/Designated Broker
Project: The Carney Book
About: The Managing Principal needed a deliverable that would allow him to quickly and easily access, interpret and create a strategic plan around the corporate organic growth initiative. I collaborated with the MP’s executive administrator, research and marketing to create an interactive PDF. This solution should include all 50 Strategic and Growth accounts and highlight existing local relationships, market share, cross-selling opportunities as well as potential commission and revenue.
“This interactive book allows me to easily visualize and analyze our market share and spot opportunities for organic growth, cross-selling and recruitment centered around our Strategic accounts. This knowledge is pivotal to build and execute my strategic plan.”
– Bryon Carney | Managing Principal
Project: Shared Services Open House
About: 2019 was a big retention year for the Phoenix office as we had approximately 60 fee earners from the legacy Cassidy Turley firm come out of contract at the end of 2018. In effort to create “stickiness” with them, I aggregated information for all internal shared services and leveraged my team to brand the event, promote the open house and successfully display what the Cushman & Wakefield platform offers. We had a great turn out and the event resulted in numerous meetings to jump-start additional projects!
