Investment firm Kennedy Wilson recently poached a duo from Century Park Realty. Commercial real estate brokers Jordan Rubinstein and David Pressberg will be joining the the international firm at its Beverly Hills headquarters.

Rubinstein founded the boutique real estate startup Century Park Realty more than two years ago, and has since acted as its managing director. His background, however, is in law. He was previously a real estate attorney for Century City law firm Green & Maker, where he represented several high-profile landlords and property management companies. Pressberg oversaw Century Park’s retail brokerage division and previously worked at The Shopping Center Group in New York City.

At Kennedy Wilson, Rubinstein and Pressberg will work to expand the firm’s tenant representation side.

Charles Dunn poached Christianne Schrobilgen from Colliers International. Schrobilgen is Charles Dunn’s brand new vice president of marketing and will grow the firm’s marketing department in both the brokerage and property management divisions. At Colliers, she was the firm’s associate director of national business development marketing.

Over at Caruso Affiliated, executive vice president of development Matt Middlebrook will be promoted to lead the firm’s new division, Strategic Development and Innovations. Middlebrook will be reporting directly to founder and CEO Rick Caruso. As the executive vice president of the new platform, Middlebrook will oversee the integration of technology and innovation with consumer experience.

“For example, the team will look at what think tanks, technology companies, and thought innovators are doing when it comes to technology and how it relates to consumers at retail and in everyday life,” he told The Real Deal in an email.
