C&W Fortifies Talent Roster with Promotions

The commercial real estate services firm has appointed five of its own to top management positions in the Americas division. The group includes Carlo Sant’Albano, Joe Stettinius, Andrew McDonald, Dan Broderick and Mike Smith.

With an eye toward capitalizing on the skills of its top team members and tailoring its services to clients’ needs, Cushman & Wakefield has pushed a handful of its shining stars up the ladder. The group with the newly designated management titles in the commercial real estate services firm’s Americas division includes Carlo Sant’Albano, Joe Stettinius, Andrew McDonald, Dan Broderick and Mike Smith.

“We are committed to having the right talent in the right place to build strong client relationships and continue our momentum,” Tod Lickerman, chief executive, Americas, said in a prepared statement. “This is a demanding business, and these leaders have the proven ability to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”

Promoting from within

Sant’Albano has taken on the title of chief executive, Capital Markets and Investor Services, Americas. He’ll be pulling duty, as he’ll continue to hold the position of chief executive, Global Capital Markets and Investor Services. C&W promoted Stettinius, another member of its Capital Markets team, to executive vice chairman, Strategic Investments, Americas. A longtime player in the industry and a major force at the firm, his fingerprints are on the facilitation of the merger of Cassidy Turley and DTZ—where he was, respectively, CEO and CEO of the Americas—as well as the merger of DTZ and C&W.

C&W also enhanced its West Region operations with new appointments for McDonald, Broderick and Smith. McDonald moved from executive managing director & regional managing principal for Greater Los Angeles/Orange County to president, West Region. And after leading the firm’s seven offices in San Diego County and Phoenix, Broderick has climbed up the ladder and up the coast to regional managing principal, Northern California. And rounding out the group of promotions is Smith, who left his position as president of CBRE’s Northwest Region to step into the role of managing principal, San Diego and Mexico.

“Cushman & Wakefield has fantastic leadership depth and key to our culture is the ability for talent to flow to where the opportunities exist to best serve our clients,” Lickerman added. “Each of these exceptional leaders is looking forward to their new challenges and to fully engaging with our clients to solve their strategic needs.”

The C&W promotions can come quickly for some. Stettinius had been appointed to his previous position in October 2016.
