Tod Lickerman is stepping down as Cushman & Wakefield’s chief executive of the Americas.

It’s not clear why Lickerman left or where he’s headed next, Connect Media reported. He joined the Chicago-based commercial real estate services firm in 2013, after leaving JLL.

“After 4 great years helping to lead DTZ and Cushman & Wakefield I’m happy to say that I’m taking a well-earned break,” Lickerman said in a statement. “Congratulations and best of luck to my colleagues, brothers and sisters at C&W, I’m proud to be an alumni!”

Shawn Mobley, president of the firm’s East Region and the leader of the Chicago offices, will be taking over for Lickerman. The leadership shakeup comes as Cushman reportedly gears up to go public. The Real Deal reported in November that Doug Harmon and Adam Spies, who jumped ship from Eastdil Secured last year, were lagging behind their CBRE competitors in terms of big-ticket deals.
