Firm’s National Industrial Brokerage Head will Lead a discussion on Regional and National Market Trends
ROSEMONT, Ill., Jan. 12, 2012 –Jim Dieter, executive vice president of Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. and head of the firm’s National Industrial brokerage platform, will co-moderate the Chicago Industrial Summit on Thursday, January 19. Produced by multi-media business publisher BISNOW, the event is slated for the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
How is the Chicago industrial market faring compared to other regional markets? When will spec development come back? What are the current leasing and absorption trends, locally and nationally? Which submarkets have the healthiest fundamentals? What lies ahead for CMBS and what will be the impact on the industrial market?
“Those are some of the key questions we will address at the Summit,” said Dieter, who will team with Jeffrey Dowd, principal of the Reznick Group, to lead the day’s program. “At this crucial juncture in the economic cycle, we will focus on the Chicago region’s market trends viewed against ongoing national industrial real estate conditions.”
In his role of directing Cushman & Wakefield’s National Industrial brokerage platform, Dieter is responsible for the group’s strategic business objective, operations, and business development. A highly sought-after resource for industry commentary, he frequently conducts and participates in seminars and conferences throughout North America.
