DTZ has made a transition in November, selling to a TPG Capital-led consortiumDTZ has been a well-known name in the industry when it comes to global property services. From this point on, the company will continue to operate under the recognizable DTZ brand, but it will now act as a privately owned, independent company.
The Same Leadership Team Combined with Independent Governance
DTZ will continue to forge ahead with a strong foundation that is based on a team of executives with the vision to offer more opportunities to clients. With Executive Chairman Brett White and Global Chief Executive Officer Tod Lickerman at the helm, DTZ aims to provide faster service and the ability to meet the demands of a competitive market.
Thanks to their new structure, DTZ now has more access to capital and flexibility. With financial backers that are firmly grounded, the company will be able to expand what they can offer to their clients, and that is the main goal. It's all about giving consumers exactly what they want, providing them with comprehensive services across the globe.
More Change is in the Wind
Back in September, one of DTZ's affiliates acquired Cassidy Turley with an eye on the future. Plans are set to combine the power of DTZ and Cassidy Turley at some point in 2015. This will bring together DTZ's presence in Europe and Asia, along with Cassidy Turley's prowess in the United States. Together, they will become a powerhouse that ranks at the top of the list.
It's Not About Getting Bigger, It's About Getting Better
Lickerman said it well when he summarized the recent changes for DTZ. The main goal of the company is to provide more options and improved services to their clients around the world. In the same way that people need to learn how to work smarter and not harder, DTZ is forging its own path as a private independent global property service. The company seeks to be a progressive leader in the industry, taking a strategic approach in order to offer more opportunities to clients on a worldwide level. The organization has become more compact, allowing DTZ to offer more specialized services and attention to detail that will build consumer confidence. With a company that is highly attuned to the needs of its client base, it will be better able to create lasting solutions. DTZ has placed itself in a position to adapt to changes in the industry in the days to come.
