Talent Acquisition 101: New Global Head of Capital Markets

The longer you stay in the business of real estate, and most service industries, the more you realize relationships are extremely important. Today, Cushman & Wakefield announced the acquisition of a New Global Head of Capital Markets (fancy way of saying buying, selling and financing real estate) Gregory S. Vorwaller, a defection from CB Richard Ellis.  Greg, based in Chicago, has a strong background in investment advisory serving as COO of CBRE’s Capital Market’s team and President of the Property Investments Group. Prior to CB Richard Ellis, where he spent 17 years, Greg was a Vice President with The First National Bank of Chicago and prior The Balcor Company.  He is also well known in the pension fund industry, having worked with Institutional Property Consultants and having founded the real estate consulting practice of William M. Mercer’s Asset Planning Group. Over the course of his career he has been responsible for more than $6 billion in property sales, debt financings, and sale/leaseback financings.

Why do we mention this all the way out in the Bay Area? For the simple reason that, with new talent and personalities comes new opportunities for business development. The Cushman & Wakefield brand is a strong one (third largest real estate brokerage company in the world), with deep roots in New York and across the country. This stronghold in the second largest office market in the country, and the largest industrial market in the country will hopefully have an immediate impact and we’re all excited to welcome Greg.


  1. Work and life are truly all about relationships. Congratulations to Greg.
