P. Barton DeLacy, MAI, CRE first opened his own firm, Appraisal Group, in Portland, Oregon in 1982. In the late 1990s he merged into Arthur Andersen, the then global professional services organization, and commenced a 15-year corporate odyssey that brought him to Chicago in 2008.
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.
