South Florida real estate hiring and personnel moves revved up in the past week.

ISG World promoted Daniel Castañeda to SVP of international sales. Castañeda has spent 10 years at ISG, during which time he helped sell South Florida projects like Echo Aventura, Echo Brickell, and Muse.

The announcement comes amid the firm’s expansion in South American markets like Colombia, Chile and Argentina, and follows the recent hiring of ISG’s sales chief Christian Fernandez.

Suffolk Construction also announced a promotion, boosting Jessica Chen from project executive to vice president in the Southeast region. The Boston-based company also recently hired Maureen Henson as vice president of people and culture for the Southeast.
