Cushman & Wakefield has hired Peter Bronsnick to head up the real estate broker’s business in its three New Jersey offices, the firm announced Tuesday.

Bronsnick joins C&W after a nearly decade-long career at SJP Properties, where he oversaw the company’s New Jersey operations. Bronsnick, originally from the Garden State, will work to grow C&W’s presence in the state once he starts his new role on July 6.

“New Jersey is a huge growth market for Cushman & Wakefield,” Toby Dodd, president of C&W’s tri-state region, told Commercial Observer. “We needed an impact leader. And Peter’s absolutely the impact leader that we wanted for our business — somebody who understands the market, is very market-facing, [and someone who] very much understands our occupier and our investor clients.”

Bronsnick will lead more than 600 employees across the company’s three New Jersey offices in East Rutherford, Morristown and Iselin, with a special focus on developing new talent from diverse backgrounds. He will focus on recruiting professionals to the company throughout their careers — from recent graduates to senior professionals. 

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for this group of professionals,” Brosnick told CO. “The idea of being able to lead this team, and the notion of bringing on new talent and inspiring them, is certainly a large part of what attracted me to the role.”

Brosnick’s 20-year career in real estate started after he completed a bachelor’s degree at Michigan State University and a master’s of science in real estate at New York University. He’s worked at Newmark, RXR Realty and started his own consulting firm, MORE Investment & Consulting, after resigning from SJP on April 9.

“We are proud of Peter and congratulate him on making this move to Cushman & Wakefield,” SJP’s founder and CEO, Steven Pozycki, said in a statement. “Peter was a valued member of the SJP Properties team for almost ten years and we look forward to continuing to work with him and the entire C&W team as valued partners of our organization. I have no doubt that Peter will be extremely successful in this new role, and that C&W will continue to thrive under his leadership.”
