Dealmakers for industrial properties continue to expand their horizons and multifamily landlords are vying for top property management talent in Chicago.

Here’s the biggest recent career moves in Chicago real estate and the companies who made the hires.

Brian Czarnecki has moved to a brokerage from a bigtime landlord.

Savills’ Chicago office brought on Czarnecki last week as a managing director specializing in the industrial sector. The move follows a stint of more than two years at Prologis, which came after he had put in six years at JLL.

The experience at Prologis has given Czarnecki “a comprehensive perspective on Chicago’s expansive industrial market, and we are looking forward to tapping into his expertise to expand our tenant representation reach for industrial users throughout the Midwest,” said George Kohl, executive vice president of operations for Savills Central region. 

Scott Gibel has jumped to Sterling Bay as the Chicago-based firm’s industrial development takes off.

Gibel, previously a market officer for IDI Logistics, was hired as Sterling Bay’s managing director for its growing industrial division. Gibel previously held positions with Brennan Investment Group and Prologis, the world’s largest industrial landlord.

JLL last month appointed Jackie Shropshire as senior vice president to head its Chicago industrial property business.

Shropshire joined the company in 2021 from Stryker and Zimmer Biomet. In his new role, Shropshire will work to expand JLL’s industrial platform in Chicago and the Midwest, overseeing daily operations for the region and leading a team of more than 50 professionals.

Erica Marshall has gone to a brokerage.

Stream Realty Partners picked up the veteran office leasing professional to fill a vice president role. She had previously been with Chicago-based commercial real estate landlord Zeller, where she rose from leasing assistant to leasing director over 12 years, her LinkedIn page shows.

“Stream’s entrepreneurial platform will allow me to do it all while serving my clients’ needs,” Marshall said in a statement.

Wingspan Development Group snagged a property manager who had been handling a big Fulton River District asset for a Canadian landlord.

Mirela Vukovic joined Wingspan as corporate property and asset manager, a newly created role at the firm. She previously spent 10 years with Morguard, a Canadian real estate investment trust with nearly $19 billion in assets under management, including the 848-unit Alta K Station apartment high-rise that Vukovic managed.

“As we continue to identify and develop new projects across the country, it’s crucial to have someone with Mirela’s acumen on board,” Chris Coleman, vice president of development for Wingspan, said in a statement.
