John O’Neill Departs Cushman & Wakefield As New Head Of U.S. Multifamily Sales Takes Over

By Jarred Schenke for Biznow

Cushman & Wakefield’s onetime Atlanta office leader and domestic multifamily sales head has left the firm.

John O’Neill vacated his position as president of the U.S. multifamily capital markets division late last month. He has been replaced by a senior executive from Greystone, the apartment investment firm that Cushman & Wakefield acquired a large stake in two years ago.

O’Neill confirmed his departure in a post on his LinkedIn profile. Neither Cushman & Wakefield nor O’Neill responded to Bisnow‘s requests for comment.

“After a fulfilling 20 years at Cushman & Wakefield, I have decided to transition out of the firm,” O’Neill posted. “It has been a terrific experience — affording me the opportunity to collaborate with best-in-class professionals, work with great clients, scale the business and grow as a leader. I wish the C&W team continued success. I look forward to my next chapter.”

O’Neill has been a mainstay in Atlanta’s commercial real estate industry. He began his career at Lavista Associates in 1994 before moving to Insignia/ESG in 1996, where he remained as managing director until CBRE purchased the firm in 2003. Cushman & Wakefield courted O’Neill at that point, bringing him over as a senior managing director.
