Laura Pomerantz, founder of the tenant-focused commercial and investment firm brokerage Laura Pomerantz Real Estate, has joined Cushman & Wakefield as a vice chair and head of strategic accounts, according to a spokesperson for Cushman.

Pomerantz will head up the strategic accounts department at Cushman. She was a founding partner of boutique commercial brokerage PBS Real Estate before starting a namesake firm last year. PBS Real Estate merged with ABS Partners Real Estate around the time of her departure, as The Real Deal reported.

She has brokered sales for 8 million square feet of office and retail deals for tenants such as Hudson’s Bay Company, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani, Bloomberg LP and Stuart Weitzman. Last month, Pomerantz was involved in Hudson’s Bay Company signing a lease to take 485,000 square feet of office and retail space at Brookfield Place, as previously reported. — Mark Maurer
