Cummings Retail Consulting now is part of CBRE Group, Inc., providing clients with the unmatched combination of Cummings’ expertise in mall-retailer representation with the global reach of CBRE.
As part of CBRE, Cummings personnel now will work with more than 500 Retail professionals in the Americas who collectively have relationships with more than 1,200 retailers.
Adam Cummings has joined CBRE as Senior Vice President and Retail Occupier Mall Practice Leader to drive the company’s practice for representing retailers in malls. Three Cummings team members have joined him at CBRE.
“Adam brings to CBRE a wealth of expertise in representing national, household-name retailers in the mall industry,” said Brandon Famous, CBRE Senior Managing Director and Retail Leader. “His leadership will greatly expand CBRE’s work in this highly specialized segment as many malls navigate retenanting, repositioning and adaptive reuse in the coming years. Combining Adam’s skills with CBRE’s vast scope provides clients a valuable resource as the mall industry transforms.”
Mr. Cummings will guide CBRE’s retailer-representation services in the highly specialized mall industry at a time when hundreds of malls across North America are overhauling their tenant rosters to adapt to the growth of e-commerce and changes in the store portfolios of many mall mainstays. His team specializes in lease negotiation, site selection and other representation for retailers in malls, lifestyle centers and outlet centers.
