Stream Realty Promotes Patrick Russo to Partner 

Stream Realty Partners has promoted Chicago-based executive managing director Patrick Russo to Partner. He’ll continue to oversee day-to-day activities at Stream Chicago while taking an ownership stake in the local operation.  

Russo joined Stream, a national real estate services, development, and investment company, three years ago and has grown the office to 40 professionals responsible for more than 21 million square feet of office agency leasing and more than 12 million square feet of property management. Under Russo’s leadership, the Chicago office recently relocated to Fulton Market. 

“I’m honored for this incredible opportunity to continue the job I committed to in 2019 and make Stream Chicago the most dynamic full-service operator in Chicago and the region,” Russo said. “I was motivated by the empowerment of our leaders as well as a platform that offers entrepreneurial professionals to think and operate differently.”
