EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – Ben Lowy of Ocean Twp., N.J., has joined commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. as a sales associate. He is working in the firm’s East Rutherford office as part of an office leasing team headed by Peter Hamburger and Walter Schoenberg – two seasoned professionals and long-time Cushman & Wakefield brokers.

Lowy is representing professional services firms as well as local and national corporate users in their real estate needs. An industry newcomer, he previously worked as a salesperson in the financial services sector, where he developed a deep knowledge of finance, wealth planning and investment strategy and products, and business development practices. He is leveraging this experience and his education – which culminated with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Real Estate from Monmouth University – in his new position.

“My career goal always has been geared toward commercial real estate, and when it comes to brokerage, it doesn’t get any bigger or better than Cushman & Wakefield,” he said. “I am fortunate to be here, and I am even more fortunate to be part of this particular team. Peter and Walter already have me managing deals from beginning to end and are mentoring me every step of the way as I start to build my own client relationships. It’s a great learning process, and they are excellent teachers.”

Kim Brennan, Cushman & Wakefield’s New Jersey senior managing director, noted that Lowy represents a key sector of the firm’s current recruiting initiative. “Our regional presence is expanding, and as we grow our staff in response, we are pleased to promote the development of new talent to complement our team of senior and mid-level brokers,” she said. “Ben is exactly the type of energetic, enthusiastic professional we are targeting to become Cushman & Wakefield’s next generation.”

Lowy holds a New Jersey real estate salesperson license. He is a member of Cushman & Wakefield’s Future Leaders group (a national networking and philanthropic initiative involving the firm’s mid-level brokerage professionals) as well as the Morris County Chamber of Commerce.
