Dave Sansom

Cushman & Wakefield has appointed Dave Sansom as senior managing director and leader of the property management group in Nashville, Tennessee, to assume the role of managing principal of the firm’s Nashville office as of Jan. 1, 2024.

As part of a strategic multi-year transition plan, Sansom will succeed Nashville’s current Managing Principal Doug Brandon who will shift to an Executive Director advisory role within the firm’s brokerage business and focus on overseeing relationships with several large clients. Sansom and Brandon will work closely to ensure a smooth transition and build on the firm’s growth in Nashville.

Additionally, Senior Managing Director of Property Management Terri-Lynn Mitchell will support Sansom and the Nashville Property Management platform during this transition period. A successor for Sansom’s former role will be named and onboarded in 2024.

Sansom joined Cushman & Wakefield in 2021 to lead property management efforts in Nashville. His group is responsible for the oversight of maximizing value for commercial real estate portfolios at all stages of the asset lifecycle, including ground-up development, stabilization and lease-up, renovation and repositioning, refinancing and eventual disposition. He currently oversees a team of 160 professionals, across a portfolio of 36 million square feet.
