Commercial Real Estate, and World Trade Center Atlanta member, and Amir Farokhi, Executive Director of GeorgiaForward, and Kate Atwood, Executive Director of the Arby’s Foundation.
Rick Woroniecki, Vice President of International Brokerage at Ackerman & Co., talks about international opportunity for Atlanta into the 21st century. Ackerman has been a leader in southeastern commercial real estate for almost 50 years. Rick briefly covers his and Ackerman’s history intertwined with Atlanta and Georgia economic development and growth to date, as well as Atlanta’s explosion onto the international scene since the 1996 Olympics. From Rick’s travels in China, to the London Olympics to the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Mayor Reed’s trips to England, China and Brazil, Rick and Ackerman’s activity with local and international real estate means job creation and economic growth from the man on the street in a local business to players on the world stage.
