David Sherman and Marc J. Trevisan have joined the team at Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. in East Rutherford as executive vice presidents, announced Gualberto “Gil” Medina, executive managing director of the company’s New Jersey operations. This highly regarded team brings more than a half century of combined experience and incredibly deep connections in the New Jersey commercial real estate community to their new role – which includes growing the company’s already impressive tenant representation platform.
Sherman, a resident of Bedford, N.Y., and Trevisan, a resident of Ridgewood, N.J., have worked together for nearly two decades. They specialize in tenant representation assignments for Fortune 500 companies, with an emphasis in the legal arena.

The team’s client list includes such notable names as General Mills, McCarter & English, Topcon America, BMG Music, FM Global, DSM Fine Chemicals, Hoffman-La Roche, Barclays, Aon, Novartis, Rockwell, Helring Lindeman Goldstein & Siegal LP, Lite DePalma Greenberg & Rivas, LLC, Fragomen, Del Rey, Bersen and Loewry, LLP and many others. Leading developers Gale & Wentworth, Advance Realty, Hartz, Mack-Cali and Normandy Partners have recognized Sherman and Trevisan as top brokers on multiple occasions, as have both Costar Group and NJBiz.
“The depth of the skills set and the level of professional expertise at Cushman & Wakefield are the best in the industry,” Sherman noted. “The ability to leverage from this foundation affords Marc and me an incredible opportunity to further our platform and work on very high level transactions. We love the creative thinking at this organization.”
Trevisan concurred. “Cushman & Wakefield fosters a great entrepreneurial spirit,” he said. “The chance to be a part of that is exciting. At the same time, the company offers the highest level of resources available and an established global reach that will benefit us greatly in servicing our clients.”
According to Medina, Sherman and Trevisan are well suited for Cushman & Wakefield. “David and Marc are quality individuals,” he commented. “They are among New Jersey’s most accomplished brokerage professionals and have achieved their success through impeccable service and commitment to their clients and to their industry. We look forward to their contributions here, especially in servicing law-related clients, from whom we are seeing significant growth and increasing demand for specialized capabilities.”

He has earned respect for his in-depth knowledge of diversified commercial sectors and intimate understanding of negotiating transactions across product types. He is a licensed salesperson in New Jersey and earned a bachelor’s degree from Seton Hall University.
