In Loving Memory of Wyatt B. Aiken

On Friday, November 18, 2016 the CW/CA family lost our dear friend, leader and mentor Wyatt Aiken.

Mr. Aiken had more than thirty years of experience in commercial real estate and was one of the founding members of Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Advisors, LLC. Prior to the inception of Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Advisors, Aiken worked as Director and Branch Manager with Cushman and Wakefield. Aiken began his real estate career in the 1980’s as a leasing agent and marketing principal for the Trammell Crow Company.

As Chief Operative Officer/Principal at Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Advisors, Mr. Aiken worked with both corporate and private clients focusing on strategies, planning and implementation of industrial and office real estate. Wyatt was inducted into the MAAR Commercial Hall of Fame in 2014. The highest ranking annual award given to a member of the Memphis real estate community, Aiken was recognized for his leadership, excellence, and integrity. Aiken was a powerhouse in the business world as well as being an active member of the Memphis community and Second Presbyterian Church. Aiken is survived by his wife, Tricia, and his children, James and his wife, Diana, Philip, and Rachel.

The Aiken family is asking for donations in lieu of flowers to be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
