Cushman & Wakefield Americas Chief Executive Joe Stettinius today announced the appointment of Noble Carpenter as Capital Markets Service Line Leader for the Americas region.
Mr. Carpenter brings more than two decades of extensive capital markets leadership and cross-border transaction experience to his new role, which involves aligning the strategic direction of the firm’s combined legacy Capital Markets teams that include: investment sales, mortgage brokerage, equity placements, corporate and structured finance and investment banking businesses. Mr. Carpenter is based in New York.
Mr. Carpenter will report to Mr. Stettinius and to Carlo Barel di Sant’Albano, Chairman, EMEA region and Chief Executive, Global Capital Markets & Investor Services. The trio creates a multi-national, strategic collective uniquely positioned to leverage Cushman & Wakefield’s newly merged global service platform to broaden and deepen existing relationships with corporate, institutional and investor clients in the Americas and around the world.
“Noble truly embodies the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit of the new Cushman & Wakefield and he will thrive in this new role,” said Mr. Stettinius. “His experience and vision will inspire our already-successful Capital Markets team to exceed clients’ expectations and maximize value for their investments.”
Mr. Carpenter will also focus on enriching and expanding the firm’s signature, client-centered service offerings by recruiting top talent in key growth markets throughout the Americas.

The trio added over 40 years of combined industry experience and more than $30 billion in completed sales transactions to the firm’s regional profile.
“Our commitment to providing a more robust, client-centric experience is critically dependent upon the addition of specialized, industry-leading talent that augments our core expertise,” Mr. Carpenter said. “This further enables us to deliver a 360-degree investor services platform with consistent execution and continued innovation across the Americas and the globe.”
