Glenn Rufrano, who abruptly resigned from his position as Cushman & Wakefield’s chief executive in June, will be the new chairman and CEO of Manhattan-based real estate investment firm O’Connor Capital Partners, the company announced today.

Rufrano was a founding partner of O’Connor Capital’s predecessor O’Connor Group and has been on the company’s board since 2010, according to a release.
