5 Questions with Mary VanNatta

1/29/2020
“5 Questions” is our way of turning the spotlight on our unbelievably talented and accomplished employees in the Boston office who make stellar contributions both at work and on their own time. We look forward to sharing a different member of our team’s talent with the community each month.

Mary VanNattaMary VanNatta started at Cushman & Wakefield in a temporary role, but after 5 short months of keeping the office running in tip-top shape was hired permanently to the team. Mary is the Senior Office Services Coordinator and the go-to person for everything C&W Boston – whether it’s technology, accounting or catering, Mary handles it all.

Mary took the time to tell us about her thoughts on Boston’s coworking boom and her life in the North End. Thanks, Mary!

What do you like most about your job?

The thing I like most is that I get to work with the entire office in different ways rather than with only one service line or team. Because my job has a lot of varying components, I interact with all our New England teams which allows me to understand everything that Cushman & Wakefield has to offer.

When you’re not working, where are you and what are you doing?

I love spending time with my friends and family. Whether it’s a quiet night in or going out for dinner and drinks, I always want to be surrounded by the people who mean the most to me. I also have enjoyed exploring the different workout studios in my area – I’ve come to fall in love with a few different places in the North End (which is where I live now). I’m originally from New Jersey, so its been great to have a network of people here to hang out with both in my personal life and fitness life.

What does CRE in Boston look like five years from now?

Over the next five years, I think it will be interesting to see how people shift to working at home or in flexible workplaces. Boston has become one of the most prominent cities for coworking, so I’ll be interested to see if this continues to grow over the next few years and/or what other options may become available. Between Boston’s notorious traffic problems and lacking transportation system, I think people are looking for workplace solutions that allow them to avoid those issues.

What’s the professional accomplishment you’re most proud of?

My role requires wearing many hats and what has made me most proud is becoming everyone’s “go-to” person. As I mentioned, I’m constantly getting requests from all the teams and employees in the office – every day is different, and every request is different. I take great pride when people in the office, no matter their service line, are confident that when they ask for my help, they are going to get it.

If you’re going out to dinner in Boston, where are you going?

Since I live in the North End so I am never at a loss for delicious options, but my favorite would have to be Antico Forno.
