CBRE Going for Gold!

CBRE’s Alex Speers just one game away from the 2012 Olympics.


Dublin, March 23rd 2012 – Ireland 3 Spain 2: Congratulations from all at CBRE to Alex Speers, who yesterday scored the winning goal that sees the Irish women's hockey team through to Sunday's final of the Olympic qualifying event in Belgium with a superb win against Spain.

Not only did Alex Speers, a CBRE graduate and part of CBRE's Valuation Advisory team since June 2010, captain the Irish team, but also put in the clinching goal with only nine minutes left in the game, bringing the ball down the field and scoring the 3-1 goal. Spain put in a last-ditch effort to make things tense in the waning minutes, but ultimately Alex and her team hung on for the 3-2 win.

Before heading off to start their Olympic qualifying campaign on St. Patrick’s Day, last March 17th against France, Alex said “Getting to play in the 2012 Olympics would be like a dream. It’s a once in a lifetime shot, so we’re giving it everything”

On supporting the game, Enda Luddy, Deputy MD and Head of Valuations at CBRE Ireland felt the Irish team got the result they deserved. "It was a fantastic win for them in a very high pressure match. The players put in a great performance and all of us here at CBRE are right behind Alex and wish her and the rest of the Irish Team the very best of luck for this Sunday’s final".
