Scott Niedergang joins Cushman & Wakefield

Scott Niedergang has joined Cushman & Wakefield as managing director as part of the firm’s national healthcare capital markets group within Cushman & Wakefield’s healthcare advisory group.

Niedergang and fellow new hire, GinoLollio, will lead a Chicago-based team that offers healthcare providers, developers and investors a global platform to seamlessly leverage and access the expertise of Cushman & Wakefield’s local experts and leading market position to best devise acquisition, disposition and recapitalization strategies. Additionally, they will continue to advise healthcare providers on capital raising efforts via sale-leaseback transactions.

Over the past decade, Lollio and Niedergang have closed on the sale of more than 100 medical-office assets in 20 states valued at more than $700 million, with transactions including single-asset and portfolio offerings of medical office buildings, ambulatory surgery centers, outpatient facilities, dialysis clinics and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs clinics. Their team also includes Tina Yu, marketing coordinator; business development professionals Bryan Belville and Brian McCoy; and financial analyst Chris Ordoyne.

“Gino and Scott are industry leaders whose expertise will be invaluable to our healthcare advisory group clients as we continue to expand and refine our services,” said Victoria Noonan, managing principal of Cushman & Wakefield in Chicago. “They will make a tremendous impact nationally, not only in serving our clients but in collaboration across our service lines.”

“Cushman & Wakefield’s platform allows our team to provide a full suite of real estate solutions to the entire spectrum of healthcare real estate owners,” said Niedergang. “Our capital markets expertise will compliment and add value to the existing-firm relationships within other service lines including asset services, consulting, global occupier services, agency leasing and valuation & advisory.”

Lollio and Niedergang join Cushman & Wakefield after 10 years with Marcus & Millichap, including the past three within the institutional property advisors division. They have been recognized as the top producing advisors in Marcus & Millichap’s Chicago offices and consistently ranked among the firm’s top 10 office brokers nationally. They are on Real Estate Forum’s list of “Emerging Healthcare Leaders” and were named to Crain’s 2017 list of “Most Influential Commercial Real Estate Brokers in Chicago.”
