Cushman & Wakefield Exec Leaves To Become Principal At Avison Young

Avison Young principal William Evans

Avison Young is bolstering its D.C. corporate and government services teams with a new hire from Cushman & Wakefield

William Evans, who has spent 26 years in the industry, has been named a principal at Avison Young and will work out of the firm's Northern Virginia office. 

Most recently, Evans worked as executive managing director for Cushman & Wakefield, where he spent seven years. Prior to that, he worked as a real estate manager for several corporations, including Binswanger, Irving Group, Nextel and MCI Telecommunication. 

At Avison Young, Evans will represent multi-market corporate clients and government agencies. 

“I enjoyed working for my previous company and will be forever grateful for the opportunities that it afforded me,” Evans said in a release. “So, when I considered making a move, the list of potential companies was short – and I wasn't willing to compromise. Keys for me were a robust multi-discipline platform, people I knew and liked and, perhaps most importantly, a nimble company with an unyielding entrepreneurial drive. Avison Young was the only firm that checked all of those boxes.” 

Avison Young made another big D.C. hire in July when it brought on Vice President Georgiana Condoiu from CBRE
