The Corcoran Group is making changes to its Palm Beach leadership team.

John Hackett, previously managing director of the brokerage’s Delray Beach office, is stepping into Bill Yahn’s former position as regional senior vice president in South Florida. Yahn will be working on special projects as the firm expands in the tri-county area, he said.

Yahn, who handled Corcoran’s Florida operations for 12 years, will focus on new development marketing of large-scale developments in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties via Corcoran Sunshine. He will also create a training program for agents in South Florida and strengthen the referral program between Corcoran’s New York and Florida offices.

“The tax law changes recently have been a catalyst for this,” said Yahn, adding that he is seeing more South Florida sales coming out of the Northeast and California.

The brokerage is planning to expand to West Palm Beach and relocate in Palm Beach, Hackett said. Both new offices, at 480 Hibiscus Street and 400 Royal Palm Way, are expected to open by August. Corcoran has about 140 agents in Florida.

In January, one of the company’s top producers, Jim McCann, left after more than 13 years to open Premier Estate Properties’ first office in the town of Palm Beach.

Corcoran also hired Kerry Levenson Warwick as branch manager in Delray Beach. She was previously director of sales at Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences project in Singer Island.
