Cushman & Wakefield has hired veteran commercial real estate executive Peter Bronsnick as its market leader in the Garden State.
Bronsnick, who joins the real estate services firm as its managing principal in New Jersey, comes to the position with 20 years of industry experience. The well-regarded executive most recently served as SJP Properties’ president for the New Jersey region, having also held roles with RXR Realty Corp. and Mack-Cali Realty Corp.
Based in East Rutherford, Bronsnick will now lead all market activities for C&W’s three offices in New Jersey.
“We are delighted that Peter will be joining Cushman & Wakefield,” said Toby Dodd, the firm’s president for the tristate region. “His passion for motivating teams to achieve our clients’ goals will greatly add to our culture of teamwork, respect, excellence and winning. In this role, he will drive business performance and ensure we continue to deliver the best outcomes for our occupier and investor clients across the region.
“Peter will have a specific focus on our goals around diversity, equity and inclusion, developing next-generation talent and supporting all of our professionals so they can operate at their full potential. We are so excited to welcome Peter to the team.”
C&W announced the new hire this week, touting Bronsnick’s experience in development, leasing, acquisitions, project and asset management, partner relations and marketing. With SJP, he managed a team of more than 150 professionals and was responsible for overseeing the brokerage, corporate tenant and project stakeholder communities to maintain external relationships and partnerships.
Bronsnick also oversaw and executed leasing and marketing for a 6 million-square-foot commercial portfolio across New York and New Jersey. SJP announced in early April that he would leave the firm after nearly a decade.
“New Jersey and the greater tristate region are important growth markets for our business in the Americas,” said Roberta Liss, C&W’s east region president. “Peter is an industry leader and we are confident he will continue to elevate our professionals across all service lines, grow our business and offer clients best-in-class services and solutions.”
Bronsnick is a member of the board of directors for NAIOP New Jersey and a licensed real estate professional.
“Peter is incredibly business-savvy,” said Frank Giantomasi, a partner with Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC in West Orange. “He has a unique way of viewing business relationships in their totality and is always attuned to his clients’ needs, foreseeing potential issues and solving problems before they arise.”
