Our company was founded on the belief that proactively cooperating and collaborating with the global commercial real estate community is the right thing to do for our clients and the best way to ensure maximum value for a property. We’ve expanded this ideology to include a Shared Value Network approach across all our service lines, offices and the communities where our Advisors live and work.
SVN® brand president & CEO, Kevin Maggiacomo talks about the SVN mission of creating amazing value with our clients, colleagues and community through our Shared Value Network approach.
At the SVN 2016 Conference, Kevin Maggiacomo announced the formation of the SVN Shared Value Network Commission, a group of thought leaders within the SVN organization charged with developing the SVN Shared Value Network. The SVN Shared Value Network encompasses our ecosystem of clients, colleagues and communities where together we create greater value through openness, inclusiveness and innovation.
DIVERSITY AND INTEGRITY
In 2016, we completed a study of what Millennials look for in a career and what commercial real estate firms could do to attract the best and the brightest. The survey and resulting study confirmed and solidified our commitment to diversifying our Advisor base and leadership.

ACTION. NOT JUST WORDS
Kevin Maggiacomo testifying before the Massachusetts State Legislature as to why gender balance on corporate boards is not just about doing good, but about doing good business.
Business demographics are changing around the globe. Commercial real estate needs to better represent our changing client base in order to better represent those clients in the market. We need to recruit and develop leaders from 100 percent of the population, not just the 50 percent who are men. After all, more women are graduating with bachelor’s degrees as well as MBAs than men, so we have far more qualified candidates. And you may have noticed that an increasing number of tenants occupying commercial real estate are women.

SVN offices are committed to making a positive impact in their local communities. Each office is independently owned and operated, which means SVN leadership resides locally and not in a distant city. As a result, SVN Advisors take on important roles in shaping their communities.
