In 2007, his consulting experience grew internationally when he joined global real estate consulting firm, Cushman & Wakefield, as the Head of Research in Greece. Applying a specialised feasibility study concept to developments in Greece and other parts of Europe, Frank provided the exceptional real estate development research services, providing clients with an important business decision making tool for large retail and other land use projects.
