Eastern Consolidated last week announced the formation of mother-and-daughter brokerage team Ronda and Jamie Rogovin.
While Ronda Rogovin has served as a broker at Eastern for 31 years and has been responsible for more than $500 million in commercial real estate sales, it was the hiring of her 24-year-old daughter, Jamie Rogovin, that spurred last week’s news.
Jamie Rogovin was a founding partner of Little Giants Productions, a music production company based in Harrisonburg, Va. Earlier, she served at the Atlantic Records imprint of the Warner Music Group under the vice president of the artists & repertoire department. She has also worked at Sony Music Entertainment.
Cushman & Wakefield, which in recent weeks has been on a hiring tear, has tapped Michael Hart to lead the firm’s corporate occupier & investor services group, it was announced last week. He will be based in New York City.
Mr. Hart, who most recently served as a vice president at Jones Lang LaSalle, will be responsible for managing all corporate account services and acting as a lead relationship manager between Cushman & Wakefield and its clients in the New York area. In his new role, he will report to Mark Wanic, Americas head of occupier services.
“We are very pleased to have someone of Michael’s caliber join Cushman & Wakefield, further strengthening our position as a leading occupier services provider in the New York region,” said Mr. Wanic in a prepared statement.
The announcement comes one week after Newmark Knight Frank broker Neal Golden accepted a position at Cushman & Wakefield following a series of hushed negotiations.
