Akrete welcomed Aimee in 2022 as a strategist specializing in real estate, development and professional services. Aimee has more than 25 years’ experience as an in-house communications leader with the world’s largest commercial real estate brokerage and development brands. That expertise includes 15 years leading Chicago marketing and communications for CBRE and Colliers, three years building an Americas-focused marketing platform for Cushman & Wakefield’s $1.5B platform of service lines and practice groups, an impactful year leading marketing and communications for international developer Golub & Company, and six years in the trenches as a business development writer.
Aimee’s versatility extends across all marketing channels and formats while her knowledge of CRE and workplace trends includes many dynamic industries including data centers, life science, healthcare and education. Now, Aimee works directly with CRE and CRE-adjacent clients on the development of effective communications strategies that translate into interesting and engaging content.
Aimee earned a Master of Science degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and Media Studies from Northern Illinois University. She resides in Evanston, IL in a high-energy, blended family with her husband, four boys and their dog named Ruby (a girl, thankfully). She is a hockey mom who wishes her kid wasn’t the goalie.
