At Andersen, DeLacy headed up the real estate valuation services in the Pacific Northwest. After Andersen closed, he went on to become a Senior Managing Director at Cushman & Wakefield, heading up a national corporate consulting advisory. He later was recruited to CBRE as National Director of its Energy Practice, focusing on the real estate implications of power generation.
