Cushman & Wakefield has hired former Oxford & Simpson Realty principal David Pennetta to lead the Long Island office, according to a spokesperson for the brokerage.

Pennetta will serve as executive director of Cushman and senior managing director of the Melville bureau, at 401 Broad Hollow Road. In his role at Cushman, Pennetta will look to build up the sales team and find new business opportunities. He will report to Suzy Reingold, chief operating officer of the tri-state region, and Ron Lo Russo, president of the region.

Pennetta was hired at Jericho-based Oxford & Simpson in 1988, starting as a sales associate. He brokered a long-term lease for payroll company ADP at its 68,000-square-foot headquarters, as well as leasing for CNA Financial Corporation and M&T Bank Corp. — Mark Maurer
