Josh McGee joins Cushman & Wakefield’s investor platform in Chicago

Cushman & Wakefield has announced the addition of Josh McGee as managing director with corporate capital markets. He brings over 20 years of experience in capital markets investments, and will provide advice, analysis and execution to Cushman & Wakefield’s institutional clients in the disposition of single-tenant assets and sale-leasebacks. Additionally, McGee will provide credit analysis for single-tenant sales as well as multi-tenant sales where one tenant represents a significant part of the rent roll.

“Josh is recognized across the industry for his track record of delivering sound advice and outstanding results to his clients,” said Vicki Noonan, Chicago managing principal at Cushman & Wakefield. “His expertise and analysis will provide a thorough and comprehensive analysis for our capital markets professionals and clients.”

Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield, McGee was executive director with JP Morgan’s asset management high yield business unit for four years, where his team managed the JP Morgan High Yield Mutual fund, the JP Morgan Disciplined High Yield ETF, as well as significant institutional investor mandates. Throughout his career, McGee has been directly involved in raising both debt and equity capital for public companies as well as private institutional investors, including sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, bank loan portfolios, mutual funds and family offices.

“Josh’s knowledge of investment grade and high yield credit markets allow him to bring a unique perspective to the single tenant landscape,” said Paul Lundstedt, vice chair at Cushman & Wakefield. “His experience working with institutional clients to transact across debt markets, as well as his experience raising investment capital—both debt and equity—will be of great value as we continue to expand our institutional knowledge and expertise throughout the country.”

McGee holds an MBA from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. He will be based in Chicago and Cincinnati.
