Engel & Völkers Americas announced today that Stuart Siegel has been named chief strategy officer (CSO). In this role, he will identify and oversee new growth opportunities including strategic mergers and acquisitions. Siegel will maintain his existing leadership role within the brand’s New York City brokerage as well as remain Engel & Völkers’ global head of both Private Office and Development Services.
“Stuart has been an integral part of our organization for almost ten years,” said Anthony Hitt, president & CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “From launching and building our New York City brokerage and our Global Development Services sector to expanding and enhancing Private Office into the robust experience and platform it is today, Stuart has had a tremendous impact on our brand. As we look to the future, Stuart brings both the institutional knowledge and industry experience necessary to create and oversee the strategic growth opportunities and initiatives that will propel our brand and existing license partners’ businesses to the next level.”
In January 2022, Siegel was appointed to the role of Global Head of Private Office, which offers buyers and sellers at the very top end of the market discreet access to premium real estate opportunities and the highest level of specialized support and expertise. He also launched and now serves as the brand’s Global Head of Development Services, a platform designed to leverage Engel & Völkers’ global footprint and residential, commercial and resort expertise on five continents to support developers, builders, and investors.
Siegel has spent his career in luxury real estate, development, and strategic consulting, previously serving as the president and CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty, president and COO of Brunello Development Corp., and founder of Ore Hill Advisors, which specialized in consulting services to luxury companies, family offices and private investors in the luxury property sector.
“As Engel & Völkers’ presence in the Americas continues to expand, I look forward to supporting our network with strategic initiatives that will enhance our business, both collectively and on the individual shop and advisor level,” said Siegel. “Drawing on a historic European brand legacy and highly personalized approach to client service, we’re offering consumers an unmatched luxury real estate experience. Our continued growth is proof that this offering is resonating with homebuyers and sellers. We’ve reached an exciting inflection point in the brand’s trajectory, one which I am eager to oversee and leverage to its full potential as chief strategy officer.”
