After Nearly 120 Years, Exit Sonnenblick Goldman



After acquiring the majority interest in Sonnenblick Goldman in 2007, Cushman & Wakefield Sonnenblick Goldman is dropping the name in a move that a spokesman told The Mortgage Observer is designed to merely “align its services globally.” The group will now be known as the Equity, Debt & Structured Finance practice.

The move doesn’t involve any personnel changes, the spokesman said.

“Cushman & Wakefield Sonnenblick Goldman’s long-standing record as a leader in real estate financial services is unrivaled,” Steve Kohn, president of the newly-named division said. “We’re proud of its almost 120 year history, which has set the foundation for Cushman & Wakefield’s position as a leader in the structured finance and capital markets arena.”

Mr. Kohn was president of Sonnenblick Goldman when the acquisition took place and joined C&W along with five other principals.

The name change makes the three verticals within the Capital Markets Group at C&W Investment Sales & Acquisitions; Equity, Debt & Structured Finance; and Corporate Finance & Investment Banking.
