Devpal, Dev, Gupta was featured in Commercial Executive Magazine as one of the biggest representatives of the American dream today. Coming from one of the world’s poorest countries, Tanzania, he devoted his time into education and hard work, which enabled him to come to the United States for university where he completed a Bachelor of Science at Arizona State University. He was immediately recruited after graduation to join the industry of commercial real estate and has grown to become an Executive Director at Cushman & Wakefield.
Through his career, Dev Gupta has had the pleasure of working with numerous fortune 500 clients, and has also guided startups to success. His forte is tenant representation, where he represents users or occupiers of space, consulting them to reduce both their costs and exposure on the second largest expense they carry on their books, their leased space.
His journey has given him the belief that time is one of the world’s most precious commodities and with this, he works hard to make sure every second is spent with care,which has led him to receive the CoStar Power Broker Award for the years; 2011, 2014, 2016, and 2019 as well as be recognized as Cushman & Wakefield’s Top Arizona Tenant Rep Team in 2015 and Top Ten Broker Legacy DTZ from 2009 to 2014.
Through his tenure at Cushman & Wakefield, he has dedicated his time to becoming a Tenant advocate when conducting commercial real estate transactions, making sure the needs of a tenant are not overlooked. His dedication comes from another one of his mottoes that everyone deserves to be treated with respect as one never knows where life journeys will go. This has led him to become an advocate for more than tenants, but for all People.
Dev Gupta stands for authenticity and the power that multiple voices, voices of just one percent of the world, combined can make a positive impact. This belief has prompted him to write his upcoming book “Power of One,” which dives into one of his mottoes that People can make a difference in the world around them.
His accomplishments, however, started when he was 15 as the youngest cricket player ever to represent Tanzania, which started his final motto that hard work opens all opportunities. As a proud father of two girls, he looks to pass on all his mottoes and beliefs to them as well as to others in order for them to be successful in their own life journey and to make sure their voices are heard.
