Long live Glenn Markman!
Last week, Cushman & Wakefield hosted the very first, “Glenn Markman Legacy 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament” at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The tourney, was a whopping success and a huge tribute to the legendary, “brokers broker” Glen Markham. Markham as a C&W broker was the genius behind Brooklyn’s incredible growth, before he succumbed to cancer at age 52.
Tournament brainchild and C&W director Jason Greenstone told BIS that a “basketball tournament was how to truly capture Glenn as a person’.
“He was a mentor for me and many of the younger professionals, and had an open door policy,” Jason told Bisnow. “We wanted something that not only captured his interests, but was involved in the Brooklyn community and developed the younger generation like he did.”
