CushWake Adds Gregory Kirsch to Lead Midwest Retail Leasing

Chicago retail leasing veteran Gregory Kirsch has joined Cushman & Wakefield to lead Midwest retail leasing. He has joined the firm from NKF.

Kirsch will work closely with the property management and capital markets teams in Chicago and across the region, supporting the company’s broader retail platform. His mandate includes growing Cushman & Wakefield’s retail services offering across the Midwest, including recruitment of a retail team to be based in Chicago.

“The retail sector has been undergoing a marked evolution for some years now,” said Vicki Noonan, Chicago managing principal. “Greg truly understands how the market has shifted and why the relationships between a tenant and landlord and between a brand and its customers are more important than ever. We felt it was crucial to bring in a retail leader that could help define a client’s specific retail requirements, while acknowledging that special relationship.”
