Bill Cunningham has been promoted to president of sales at the Corcoran Group, a new role that consolidates oversight of sales for the firm’s Manhattan, Brooklyn, Hamptons and South Florida markets.

Sales managers overseeing the Brooklyn and Hamptons regions previously reported to Pam Liebman, CEO of the firm. “This is hugely productive for the company,” Liebman said Wednesday. “It gives me more time to be more strategic and focused on the future of the company.”

Cunningham joined Corcoran in 2001 as an agent and worked his way up to running the firm’s main East Side office. In 2014, he spent nine months as president of Trump International Realty before returning to Corcoran as general sales manager, replacing retiring executive Tresa Hall.

Until now, Corcoran’s Brooklyn and Hamptons markets were overseen by Frank Percesepe, who is retiring June 15. In South Florida, Bill Yahn recently turned over day-to-day operations to John Hackett, who will report to Cunningham. Yahn is retiring in December.

Corcoran was the No. 1 firm on The Real Deal’s most recent ranking of residential brokerages, after closing $6.29 billion in sell-side deals in 2017.
