Trammell Crow Company Announces Partnership with Project Destined
February 28, 2022
Trammell Crow Company (TCC), one of the nation’s largest commercial real estate developers and investors, is pleased to announce its national partnership with Project Destined, a social impact platform created to provide underserved, diverse students with apprentice-style training in the real estate industry.
Together with CBRE Investment Management, TCC has committed to sponsor two teams of students, beginning Spring 2022 in the Boston market. The TCC and CBRE Investment Management team includes 30 mentors from the business that volunteered to support the initiative. Students partner with corporate mentors in evaluating live, local real estate transactions over an intensive 10-week program that culminates in a pitch competition to a panel of senior industry executives.
“Trammell Crow Company is excited to be working with Project Destined in partnership with CBRE Investment Management for the Spring 2022 semester,” said Adam Weers, TCC’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our firm has many goals related to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion in both our business and within our industry. Partnering with Project Destined is an incredible way to introduce diverse talent not only to TCC, but to the real estate development industry more broadly. Our hope is to make a lasting impact on these students and one day find them joining our team – or even across the table at a deal pitch!”
Project Destined, founded by a former Carlyle executive Cedric Bobo, has partnered with 100+ real estate firms and 70+ universities in its mission to provide diverse students with hands-on experience working in the commercial real estate industry.
“We are excited to partner with Trammell Crow and CBRE Investment Management to prepare this incredible group of students for a career in commercial real estate,” said Project Destined Co-Founder Cedric Bobo. “The real estate industry provides unparalleled opportunities to build a great career while also impacting your community and your city. This program will ensure that these students are ready to take on that challenge.”
