Cushman & Wakefield has acquired the remaining 35 percent interest of its debt and equity finance subsidiary Cushman & Wakefield Sonnenblick Goldman, the commercial real estate firm announced today. As part of the move, it has restructured and expanded its New York Capital Markets Group under the leadership of Steven Kohn, who will continue in his role as president of Cushman & Wakefield Sonnenblick Goldman. The acquisition and expansion in New York comes three years after Cushman & Wakefield’s initial acquisition of a 65 percent stake in Sonnenblick Goldman, an independent real estate investment banking firm. “This is a time of significant and rapid change for the global real estate capital markets and with Steve’s direction and our existing and new talent, we’re aiming to leverage a broad service platform, deep market knowledge and a highly coordinated approach to differentiate our service offering,” said Glenn Rufrano, president and CEO of Cushman. The New York Capital Markets Group will also include the investment sales team of Helen Hwang, Nathaniel Rockett and Karen Wiedenmann. TRD
