Cushman & Wakefield tapped Nick DiPaolo as director of brokerage for Greater Los Angeles. He will oversee brokers working out of the firm’s Downtown and West L.A. offices, along with those in El Segundo and Long Beach. He held a similar role in the company’s San Diego operation. Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield, DiPaolo worked at CBRE for nine years.

Brokers Stacy Vierheilig-Fraser and Todd Wuschnig have joined Lee & Associates as principals after their old shop, Charles Dunn Co., said it would be closing its brokerage division. Vierheilig-Fraser specializes in office leasing and sales in the San Fernando Valley, while Wuschnig represents landlords and tenants in medical, entertainment and media office sectors. Mike Tingus, president at Lee, said in a statement his firm had been trying to recruit the two for a decade but “timing was never right.” Until now, that is.

Commercial real estate firm Kidder Mathews recruited away C.J. Collins from Voit Real Estate Services. In his new role as senior vice president, Collins will specialize in industrial properties in the South Bay market. Some of his more notable deals include representing Local Roots in its 125,860-square-foot lease in Vernon, and closing several deals for Guardian Life Insurance.

Up the coast in San Francisco, real estate lawyer Allison Kidd was promoted to partner at Gibson Dunn. Her practice focuses on commercial real estate transactions and land use issues, such as acquisitions and entitlements. Kidd’s promotion was part of a larger company-wide restructuring, where the international law firm named 17 new partners.
