Cushman & Wakefield St. Louis office names managing principal

Kelly Diehl, a leading commercial real estate executive in the St. Louis market, has joined Cushman & Wakefield as managing principal of the company’s St. Louis office.

Diehl, who will join the company in early January, will leave her position as managing director of operations at Altus Properties, a real estate investment firm in the Midwest. Prior to her 13 years at Altus, Diehl began her real estate career with Cassidy Turley (a former C&W firm), culminating in her promotion to senior vice president.

Diehl’s new position was last occupied by Brian Ungles, who this summer ended a five-year run as managing principal to become the firm’s Americas Leader, Project & Development Services. Ungles remains based in St. Louis and works actively with the local market.
