SAN JOSE, CA-Cisco Systems Inc. has selected CB Richard Ellis Group of Los Angeles as its preferred provider of project management services globally. Locally based Cisco operates a portfolio of 506 properties in 87 countries that totals 23.6-million square feet. Potential assignments range from the build out of small field offices to large-scale campus development to complex data center construction.
