Three Grubb employees bolt for Cassidy Turley

Another three Grubb & Ellis employees have jumped ship, this time opting to join Cassidy Turley. The national commercial brokerage announced three new additions to its New York -based research, marketing and consulting team: Richard Persichetti, Danielle Regan and Arielle Herzfeld. They started March 12.

Persichetti assumed the role of vice president of the research, marketing and constulting team, after serving as director of research and marketing at Grubb & Ellis. Danielle Regan is serving as Cassidy Turley’s senior graphic designer and Herzfeld is a marketing associate at the firm.

The departures are part of a growing exodus from Grubb & Ellis, which filed for bankruptcy in an acquisition by BGC Partners and informed brokers they wouldn’t be compensated for commissions and other payments they are owed. As The Real Deal reported last week, two Grubb executives joined Lee & Associates, a popular destination for Grubb defectors.

Meanwhile, Cassidy Turley also added Geraldyne Johnson, formerly a financial analyst at Centric Real Estate Advisors, as an associate vice president in its brokerage division. — Adam Fusfeld
