NBCUniversal is welcoming a new chief real estate officer — Edward Chuchla, who joins the media conglomerate from Las Vegas Sands Corporation. In his new role, effective Sept. 12, Chuchla will oversee all real estate transactions and manage the company’s 25-year master plan for its 400-acre property in L.A. He will report to Ian Trombley, president of NBCUniversal Operations and Technical Services.

At LVSC, Chuchla was the senior vice president of development and handled global real estate. Chuchla also had an eight-year tenure with the Walt Disney Company, serving as the senior VP of corporate operations and real estate. He has a master’s degree in architecture.

Over at JLL, president Christian Ulbrich has been promoted to CEO, effective Oct. 1. Ulbrich will replace current CEO Colin Dyer, who will remain on JLL’s board of director until 2017.

Ulbrich began his term at JLL in 2005 as managing director of its German headquarters. He was named president in 2009.

Dyer has been JLL’s CEO since 2004. Under him, JLL saw a 500 percent revenue growth, closed 80 acquisitions and added more than 100 offices around the world.

“In my new role, I intend to build on the platform of profitable and resilient growth that we have maintained in the last 12 years,” Ulbrich said in a statement.

And finally, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank announced Tuesday that it had poached Cresa’s senior vice president Craig Kish. At NGKF, Kish will serve as the new senior managing director, in which he will focus on representing corporate user clients and make sure operations are in line with the overall company strategy.
