Rich Hamilton has joined Cushman & Wakefield as managing director and head of the commercial real estate services firm’s newly formed 3PL Logistics Specialty Practice Group. He is based in the company’s Rosemont office, which serves as the home base for its Americas Logistics & Industrial Services team.
Hamilton has a diverse professional background in manufacturing and supply chain, third-party logistics, and industrial real estate – most recently serving as Prologis’ first vice president, Global Customer Solutions.
In his new role, Hamilton is teaming with Cushman & Wakefield’s industrial brokers, research and strategic consulting professionals and other special practice groups to provide facility and real estate advisory services for third-party logistics providers.
“Third-party logistics organizations and their underlying users – retailers, manufacturers and service providers – represent a substantial vertical within the occupier community,” Hamilton said. “Our goal is to help them identify the best real estate solutions and develop real estate strategies that serve to optimize their supply chains.”
