Cushman & Wakefield today announced the formation of a strategic alliance with DHC Real Estate Services, LLC, a service-disabled-veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) founded by Jonathan Luttwak, a former U.S. Army captain and New York-based commercial real estate professional.
The alliance will enable public- and private-sector enterprises to increase their commitment to supplier diversity — and to meet state and federal mandates — while also maintaining access to the global, multi-disciplinary platform of services offered by Cushman & Wakefield.
“This alliance reaffirms our commitment to the military and veteran community, which is a core component of our corporate culture,” said Frank Stanley, Director of Veterans Programs at Cushman & Wakefield. “It also allows us to provide an outstanding solution for our clients who are looking to bolster their commitment to supplier diversity — particularly those looking to partner with a veteran-owned firm.”
DHC Real Estate Services was founded in 2018 by Luttwak, a combat veteran who started his commercial real estate career in brokerage services at Cushman & Wakefield. A graduate of West Point, Luttwak served as a U.S. Army officer, reaching the grade of captain. He was deployed to Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 and also supported operation Enduring Freedom in Kuwait following 9/11. He subsequently earned his MBA from Columbia University.
“I founded my business with a belief that real estate is at the heart of everything we do as a nation,” Luttwak said. “It is where we innovate, collaborate, live, work, govern and educate. A great real estate strategy can have a meaningful impact on the success of an enterprise. At DHC, we combine a process-driven approach with the values of selfless service ingrained during my time at West Point and the Army — those of duty, honor and country. This alliance enables me to provide values-based service to clients while also empowering them with the full depth and breadth of Cushman & Wakefield’s global platform of services.”
DHC Real Estate Services has been certified as a SDVOSB by the state of New York and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Verification and Evaluation. Services provided through the firm’s alliance with Cushman & Wakefield include real estate leasing, acquisitions/dispositions, strategic consulting, property/facility management, valuation and project management.
