DALLAS–Cushman & Wakefield‘s locally-based Steve Everbach has been tapped to take on a national role for the company as Leader, US Agency Leasing. In addition to his duties as Market Leader, Everbach will handle the expanding agency leasing service platform.
“Steve Everbach is a natural leader and a perfect fit to continue the growth of the agency leasing platform within our new US Investor Services group,” says Shawn Mobley, leader of the newly formed US Investor Services group, in a statement. Everbach “has an impressive track record of creating the kind of client service that attracts business because of his passion, work ethic and emphasis on the client’s needs.”
In 2012, Everbach was an essential part of the acquisition team when Cushman & Wakefield acquired the Dallas- and Atlanta-based third party client service business of Cousins Properties Inc. As GlobeSt.com reported, the agreement added 128 professionals to C&W’s roster as well as 12 million square feet to the company’s agency leasing and property management portfolio.
At the time, Glenn Rufrano, the then CEO of C&W, said in a statement, “This move marks a key milestone as we begin the next phase of our strategic growth plan. Integrating such a quality group into our platform enables C&W to continue to balance our service mix across our global platform and provide consistent quality service to our clients.”
Everbach has held a number of different roles in the market through his tenure. Prior to his current role at C&W, Everbach worked for Jones Lang LaSalle, leading the company’s agency leasing and property management operations in the city. As GlobeSt.com reporter, before JLL, he served as president of Evergreen Realty Advisors, a local real estate firm that he founded in 2004; as well as the COO of Sam Ware’s Lazarus Property Corp.
From 1997 until 2001, Everbach worked as managing director in asset services for C&W.
“I am looking forward to continuing the momentum created through the formation of our US Investor Service group and specifically the Agency Leasing platform,” Everbach says. “Our clients are benefitting from a more focused and collaborative approach and we will continue to create opportunities for our professionals to deliver a service mix that is the best in the industry.”
