Cushman & Wakefield Inc. has promoted Shawn Mobley to lead a newly formed U.S. Investor Services Group.
The new U.S. Investor Services Group will provide single point of contact and fully integrated solutions to property owners. It will be comprised of capital markets, agency leasing and asset and property management services.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our investor clients, for our firm, and for me,” said Mobley, who was previously the Central Area president and Chicago market leader for the firm. “Clients ultimately want integrated solutions that help them address their specific business needs. This model will do that.”
As president of the Central Region of Cushman & Wakefield, Mobley oversaw 37 offices in 33 markets within the 14-state region. Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield, Mobley was president, brokerage services at Grubb & Ellis, where he oversaw the entire national brokerage team. Illinois Real Estate Journal profiled Mobley in an interview earlier this year.
Cushman now has 89 brokers in the Chicago area, up from 29 in 2011, according to the firm.
“Our outstanding growth in Chicago is a testament to Shawn’s leadership and drive — and it is those skills that make him the right person for our new U.S. Investor Services Group,” Jim Underhill, CEO of the Americas, said in a statement.
Streamlining the organization also includes a realignment of the regional structure within the United States. To that end, Bill Magner, who has grown the firm’s East region over the past three years, will now lead all U.S. Markets, except the New York Tri-state Region.
