Cushman & Wakefield executive Joe Stettinius died of a heart attack Thursday night. He was 55.

Stettinius was named executive vice chairman of strategic investments for the Americas in November, after more than three decades in the industry. He’s survived by his wife, Regina, and two children, Alexander and Isabel, the Washington Business Journal reported.

“It’s a tremendous loss for the industry,” Ray Ritchey, senior executive vice president of Boston Properties, told the publication. “He had a profound impact not only on Cushman & Wakefield but the entire industry.”

Stettinius, the son of a developer, began his career as an analyst in the 1980s. He was named CEO of Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers in 2007 and helped launch Cassidy Turley in 2010. He oversaw the firm’s merger with DTZ, and then DTZ’s merger with Cushman in 2015.

“Joe was, first and foremost, dedicated to his family — and that dedication shaped his approach with his teams,” Cushman’s s current Americas CEO, Shawn Mobley, said in an internal memo. “He supported his colleagues in becoming the best versions of themselves, and had a quick sense of humor, even in the most difficult situations.”
