“Chad, a respected and sought-out voice in the capital markets sector, has an innate talent for leading and inspiring teams of top performers,” said Newmark CEO Barry Gosin. “In this newly defined executive capital markets position and coupled with his passion for execution excellence to achieve the best on behalf of clients, Chad’s leadership contributions will enhance our capabilities and efficiencies as Newmark continues on its growth trajectory.”
