NEW YORK CITY-Terrence Spillane, long-time media relations director at Cushman & Wakefield, has passed away from a heart attack. He was 52. The announcement came late Friday afternoon in a memo from the company’s president and CEO Bruce Mosler.

“For two decades, Terry was the face of Cushman & Wakefield to the world, managing strategic media relationships across America and internationally,” said Mosler in the memo. “More important than any story idea was the integrity and trustworthiness Terry communicated every day. Though known affectionately as ‘Bulldog’ for his persistence and professional success, those who had the chance to work with him loved him for his personal warmth, sense of fair play, and gentleness of spirit. These qualities, along with his depth of experience, will be dearly missed.”

Others in the industry are saddened to hear of Spillane’s passing. “I knew Terry for more than 20 years and he was not only good for Cushman & Wakefield, but he was a true gentleman and a friend to me personally. I will miss him,” says Michael G. Desiato, vice president and group publisher of Real Estate Media.

Spillane is survived by wife Mary Ann and their two daughters, Carolyn and Kate. He served on the alumni board of his alma mater, Iona College.
