ST. LOUIS, MO: (STL.News) – Cushman & Wakefield will be adding over 500 jobs in the St. Louis area.  The commercial real estate company has announced that most of the jobs will be in Town and Country.  With the creation of the new jobs, the company will qualify for Missouri incentives.  The Chief Executive for the Americas stated that they are dedicated to the St. Louis community.  Currently, Cushman & Wakefield employ over 800 locals.
