NEW YORK CITY-Anthony J. Peters, onetime CEO of Cushman & Wakefield and one of the city’s leading dealmakers, died Oct. 7 in Fort Myers, FL. He was 94.

Along with his brothers Leone (1911-1988) and Vincent, a current vice chairman with C&W, Peters helped drive the company’s expansion in the 1960s and spearheaded its sale to RCA Corp. in 1970. He rose through the ranks from the 1940s on, becoming president and CEO of C&W in 1971 and chairman of the board in 1976. In all, he worked for the company for more than half a century, first joining as a 17-year-old office boy and rejoining after a three-year stint in the US Army Air Corps during World War II.
