Cushman & Wakefield has poached another one. Bryan Jacobs will join the firm’s Downtown Los Angeles office as the new executive vice president of enterprise solutions and head of global operational outsourcing, according to a company release.

Previously JLL’s executive managing director for solution development, Jacobs will report to Michael Casolo, Cushman’s president of enterprise solutions for global occupier services. He was hired alongside Brian Velo, who will be the firm’s executive vice president of enterprise solutions, operating out of the Chicago office.

Meanwhile, Cushman broker Marc Renard has been promoted to executive vice chairman of the company’s capital markets group. He joined the firm in 1983.

It’s win-some-and-lose-some for the real estate brokerage. It also lost two leasing veterans — Taylor Ing and Drew Sanden — to none other than Newmark Grubb Knight Frank. They will be the senior managing directors of the Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley and North Orange County.

At Cushman, Ing and Sanden were executive and associator directors, respectively. The pair will now work with senior associate Scott Maples out of the NGKF’s Ontario, California office. The team will collectively oversee more than 2 million square feet of office property.

Single-family homebuilder Benchmark Communities also has a new hire: Shane Bouchard, who will be the firm’s Southern California operations division president. A member of the Building Industry Association, Bouchard was hired from Frontier Communities, where he was the vice president of operations for three years. There, he was able to increase the firm’s annual volume of new sales.

In his new role, Bouchard will oversee all of sales, marketing, land development and construction for Benchmark’s SoCal operations.
