Cushman & Wakefield has added to its capital markets team in New Jersey with one of its newest hires.
The firm announced Monday that Chuck Kohaut has joined its equity, debt and structured finance group as a director based in its East Rutherford office. He most recently worked at Newmark Knight Frank, bringing a focus on arranging debt and equity throughout the suburban New York metropolitan area.
“We are very excited to welcome Chuck to the team,” said John Alascio, executive managing director and New Jersey team lead for the equity, debt and structured finance group. “We have no doubt that his institutional experience, market expertise and positive attitude will contribute to our team immensely and help us continue to grow our rapidly expanding platform in the suburban New York metropolitan area.”
C&W noted that, over the course of his career, Kohaut has participated in investment sales totaling more than $2.5 billion and has completed more than $11.5 billion in property valuations for some of the largest institutional investors in the world. He has spent six years in institutional investment sales at NKF, CBRE and Colliers International.
Kohaut holds a bachelor of business administration from the University of Notre Dame and is an active member of NAIOP and the Urban Land Institute, according to a news release. He is also actively involved with the Valerie Fund and the Movember Foundation.
“Chuck is an excellent addition to our comprehensive capital markets team, enabling us to better serve our clients throughout the investment sale process and over the lifecycle of their assets,” said David Bernhaut, executive vice chairman and co-head of C&W’s metropolitan area capital markets group in East Rutherford.
