The organization’s mission is to advance the practice of Corporate Real Estate (CRE) through professional development opportunities, publications, research, conferences, designations, and networking in 46 local chapters and networking groups globally.
Corporate real estate is the real property used by a company for its own operational purposes. It provides corporations with a productive environment to house employees, manufacture and distribute products and provide services to the market. Corporate real estate touches all classes of property, land, and buildings such as office facilities, data centers, manufacturing facilities, logistic centers, corporate headquarters, distribution facilities, retail stores, and hotels. Corporate real estate impacts a diverse mix of industries including high-tech, financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, healthcare, insurance, and oil and gas.
Corporate real estate (CRE) executives have strategic responsibility for their corporations’ total real estate footprint of owned and leased space. They are charged with anticipating and responding to a corporation’s property needs as a result of business growth, expansion, or contraction. They generally manage portfolios with millions of square feet of property spanning multiple continents.
CRE departments partner with external service providers
to acquire, maintain and dispose of real estate. A broad range of corporate services is required to support the corporate real estate function, including but not limited to brokerage, site selection, architecture and design, lease administration, facilities management, and more.
