Cushman & Wakefield CIO, Adam Stanley, Named to Notable LGBTQ Executives


Cushman & Wakefield proudly announced today that Global Chief Information Officer and Chief Digital Officer, Adam Stanley, has been named to Crain’s Chicago Business Notable LGBTQ Executives list. This is the publication’s first editorial feature to spotlight diversity in Chicago’s executive ranks through this specific lens and recognize individuals for their success and accomplishments. 

Mr. Stanley, a Chicago native, has been with Cushman & Wakefield since 2014, and is a member of the company’s global executive team. He provides strategic and operational direction for the company’s client-facing and colleague technology systems and infrastructure across 70 countries. He also serves as executive sponsor of the LGBTQ+ network, UNITY, and is a leader within the Black Employee Network. Mr. Stanley founded and serves as president of the Cushman & Wakefield Charitable Foundation.

John Forrester, President, Cushman & Wakefield stated: “A voice like Adam’s adds value to the whole firm. I’m delighted that he’s being honored for his contributions, and we are fortunate to have him as an integral part of our executive team.”

Under his leadership, the company is the only organization to win three CIO Magazine CIO100 awards in the last four years. In 2014, Mr. Stanley brokered a flagship Chicago partnership with tech startup incubator 1871 and is actively involved as a member of their Board of Directors and a mentor to their advanced companies. He’s spearheaded technology VC investments in MetaProp and another soon to be named partner and drove an exclusive partnership and subsequent seed round investment in Bowery Appraisal Systems.

These efforts led to Mr. Stanley being singled out for Chicago’s Tech 50, Infoworld Premier 100 Leader, Huffington Post’s Most Social CIOs, and the InfoWorld CTO 25. In 2017, he was #1 on Duke Long’s Top 10 Most Influential Online People in Commercial Real Estate and this year made #19 on Long’s 2018 Global #CRE and #TECH Power 100. 

Mr. Stanley said: “I’m humbled and encouraged to be amongst such an amazing group on the Crain’s list. For rising stars, I’d say this: find ways to support your professional and personal communities. Don’t be so busy that you can’t be civically and charitably involved and offer your smarts to organizations that need bright and fresh thinking. You have influence with people that you might not realize.”
