Cushman & Wakefield promoted John Morris to leader of industrial services for the Americas. He will take over the position in January of next year.
Morris joined Cushman in 2005 and currently serves as senior managing director of global consulting. He will continue to work out of the Rosemont, IL, office, where he will oversee the industrial brokerage platform.
Morris will take over the lead position from Jim Dieter, who has run the unit for nearly three years, and who will stay on through 2013 to ease the transition process.
