Coming together to form a strategic partnership in which both companies can provide additional value to their clients and make the real estate process that much smoother, just seemed like the natural next step,” notes Samantha Mueting, CEO & Managing Director of iCORE Global. “With their impressive track record in saving clients time and money, CORT is the ideal partner to provide furniture solutions for our clients.”.
