Farebrother’s Alistair Subba Row wins international award at CORFAC International autumn conference

6 October 2016

Farebrother was delighted to attend the CORFAC International autumn conference last week and is proud to report that our Senior Partner, Alistair Subba Row, was named the first-ever recipient of the Steven H. Podolsky International Member of the Year Award.

CORFAC International is a network association of leading independent commercial real estate service firms with more than 80 offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Farebrother has been the UK affiliate since 2012.

Alistair Subba Row says: “It is a great honour to be the first recipient of this award in Steve Podolsky’s name as a founder of CORFAC International and former chair of the International Committee. Being part of this growing worldwide real estate family of companies is truly special and helping to extend our international network to include firms in most of Europe, India, Asia, Mexico and South America is very gratifying.”

CORFAC International 2016 President John Homsher, CCIM, announced its annual awards for the association’s greatest contributors for the year and credited Alistair for his selfless efforts to promote CORFAC International in Europe and recruit independent commercial real estate companies throughout the continent to join CORFAC International.

For Farebrother, being part of the CORFAC International network is the natural extension of the joined-up, complete service we provide by drawing on the expertise of everyone in our organisation. Through CORFAC, we can tap into insight and on-the-ground knowledge in 60 markets including North America, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, France, Poland, Romania, and Russia.

As a result, our clients get the competitive advantage of expert advice on a global scale – for real estate decisions that make sense as part of a connected national and international strategy. Meanwhile, our CORFAC International affiliation helps us support overseas investors and occupiers as they develop their UK presence, whether that's in Central London, Midtown, the South Bank, or elsewhere.
