Doug Jones, the decorated war veteran who in August left his role as the leader of Cushman & Wakefield’s Texas business, has a new gig.

Stream Realty Partners hired Jones, a former infantry officer and Army Ranger who graduated from West Point, as its managing director of Texas office services. Jones was a senior member of Cushman’s office agency leasing platform before succeeding Ran Holman as managing principal.

Based in Dallas, Jones’ duties will encompass landlord and tenant representation and property management. Stream leases or manages 50 million square feet of office space across Texas, and the firm is active in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.

Meanwhile, Chicago-based Cushman & Wakefield hired Chris Hipps to lead its Texas business, the Dallas Business Journal reported. Hipps was previously senior managing director of advisory and transaction services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for CBRE, the outlet said.
