Mark Weiss, one of the city’s top commercial brokers, is leaving Newmark Grubb Knight Frank for a position at the new Cushman & Wakefield.

He will take the title of executive vice chairman. The veteran broker was a principal and vice chairman at Newmark, where he started work in 2002.

Weiss has brokered over 1,000 deals, and has worked with clients including the Blackstone Group, Patton Boggs and Columbia University, according to Cushman & Wakefield.

He led the team that arranged the $226 million sale of 525-529 East 73rd Street on the Upper East Side by the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Hunter College, the New York Post reported. The institutions are planning a pair of hospital and medical training buildings totaling 800,000 square feet.

Cushwake has been undergoing a staff shakeup since its $2 billion merger with DTZ, finalized in September. Former police commissioner Ray Kelly left the firm in November. Diana Boutros left Winick EVP to join the firm in December. [NYP, third item]Ariel Stulberg
