The Related Companies has tapped CBRE’s Stephen Winter to be its new vice president of commercial leasing, a role where Winter will oversee leasing efforts at the Hudson Yards megadevelopment, according to a statement today from Related.

While at CBRE, Winter was involved in the leasing of the Hudson Yards South Tower, at 10 Hudson Yards, which will be anchored by Coach, L’Oreal USA and German software giant SAP.

“Stephen has already been integral in attracting world class brands to the Hudson Yards development in his role at CBRE,” said Related’s Hudson Yards president L. Jay Cross in the statement. “I could not be more pleased that he will bring his expertise full time to Related.”

Winter said that Hudson Yards’ four commercial towers would provide tenants with “a globally competitive work environment distinguished by its distinct architecture, unmatched accessibility and unrivaled amenities,” in the statement. “As a native New Yorker, I could not imagine a more exciting opportunity.”

Last month, Boston Properties hired veteran CBRE broker John Powers to be the new head of its New York operations. – Hiten Samtani
