Chairman & CEO
As founder of Fischer, Cliff currently serves as chairman of the board and CEO, and he is responsible for the overall direction and mission of the company. Possessing unique foresight and broad knowledge in the business of corporate real estate, Cliff consistently strives to refine the firm’s quality of services and heads the development of Fischer’s sophisticated solutions for corporate real estate decision making across the country.
Cliff founded Fischer in 1985 as the first company to couple brokerage services for tenants with software development services for corporate real estate executives. Fischer’s world-class transaction services in addition to its transformative, leading-edge technology and consulting services led to the company’s quick on-boarding of several Fortune 500 clients who recognized Fischer’s unique value propositions. AT&T, Citicorp and FedEx were among the first major clients to tap Fischer’s expertise in managing important real estate assets. Cliff’s vision and understanding of many real estate markets have since benefitted countless corporate real estate departments nationwide, and his expertise has led to Fischer’s impressive long-term relationships with many corporate real estate executives, including several Fortune 500 companies.
Fischer has since grown to be one of the largest corporate real estate service firms that exclusively represents tenants, and the company now includes the subsidiaries of Fischer Financial, Inc. and Fischer Solutions, Inc. Fischer Solutions’ proprietary ManagePath® and Visual Manager™ technology remain as leading software platforms for managing corporate real estate portfolios and projects.
Cliff has more than 30 years of experience in real estate transactions and strategies, helping clients achieve maximum value for their portfolios. Before starting Fischer, Cliff worked for other real estate services firms as a tenant representative and director of marketing. He began his career in investment banking.
