-- Already a SVP at Swig Equities—which, like Helmsley Spear is owned by Kent Swig—Dean will continue his role at the latter firm.
He brings with him over 25 years of local commercial real estate experience with firms including Cushman & Wakefield and Jack Resnick & Sons. At Helmsley Spear, Dean will be responsible for the leasing activity of all of the firm’s commercial office brokers.
“Jonathan is an extremely talented real estate professional who has been an active player in commercial real estate in New York City for over 25 years,” says Kent Swig. “He has worked on a number of transactions involving Swig Equities’ properties since 1999, and has knowledge of Helmsley Spear, our brokers and the marketplace, which makes him extremely valuable in his new role with Helmsley Spear.”
Prior to joining Helmsley Spear and Swig Equities, Dean served as Managing Director of Leasing at Jack Resnick & Sons and was responsible for the leasing and tenant relations for nine office buildings totaling 3.5 million square feet and completed 620,000 square feet of leases in over 35 lease transactions.
Dean began his career at Cushman & Wakefield, where he gained experience in both landlord and tenant representation. He leased in excess of 2.8 million square feet in over 400 lease transactions and attained the title of senior director. In 1993, Dean was the recipient of Cushman & Wakefield’s top producer salesperson award in its Downtown office and was named a member of the Million Dollar Club for the year 2000.
“I am thrilled with the confidence shown in me by Kent and the entire Helmsley Spear team,” says Dean. “I look forward to contributing to the success and growth of Helmsley Spear in the years to come.”
