TALLAHASSEE, FL – At just 43, John Crossman recently joined the ranks of Florida State University’s College of Business Hall of Fame, making him its youngest-ever inductee. Crossman, a 1993 graduate of FSU, is president of Crossman & Company, one of the largest retail leasing, management, development, and marketing firms in the southeast.
“This is such an honor. Not a day goes by that I don’t rely on the great education I got at FSU. It built the foundation for my career and connected me forever to a strong alumni base. I’m very proud to have graduated from FSU. Go ‘Noles!” Crossman said.
Established in 2003, the College of Business Hall of Fame honors alumni who have excelled in their careers and have made significant contributions to the mission of the College of Business.
In a career spanning more than 20 years, Crossman has personally been involved with more than $1 billion in transactions. His company represents more than 20 million square feet of properties located in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee. Yet, he is more proud of his efforts to foster the next generation of industry leaders. He has endowed scholarships at Florida State University, University of Central Florida (UCF), Florida Southern College and Bethune-Cookman University. In 2014, he was instrumental in raising over $800,000 in scholarship funds for the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Foundation. These funds will be awarded to students at 30 universities across the U.S.
Crossman also serves on the Foundation Board for Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU), as a Trustee of Valencia College, and on the Real Estate Boards for FSU, UCF and University of Florida.
