Marlin Land plans to launch a property management division in China catering to multinational clients, according to Arthur Mirante, president and chief executive officer of Cushman & Wakefield, one of the founding members of Marlin Land. 'We want to focus on extending services that we are providing to clients in the United States,' he said. Cushman & Wakefield is one of the largest and longest established real estate and property service companies in the US. It was recently awarded a contract by American Express in the US involving the management of six million square feet. Mr Mirante said Cushman & Wakefield, through Marlin Land, would provide a range of property management services to these multinationals. The group's executives said they also hoped to open an office in Shanghai. According to Mr Mirante, offices in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Jakarta and eventually Australia will be opened soon.
