Together, they will continue and expand the success of the team and pave the way for the future of Cushman & Wakefield in South Florida’s industrial market.

“The addition of Andrew and Nico, provide our clients enhanced access and coverage in tenant representation, sales and agency leasing,” stated Ramoski.

Their proven capabilities will reinforce the strength of our team in Miami and our commitment to support the industrial market, delivering exceptional results to our clients throughout South Florida,” added Wanda Riley, Cushman & Wakefield’s Managing Principal for Florida.

Fernandez and Palazzo come from CBRE where they worked together on the Industrial & Logistics Services team in Miami. They specialized in landlord and tenant representation, as well as off-market sales of industrial properties throughout the South Florida market, working on transactions in 2023 totaling over $150 million in value and representing clients such as DB Schenker, AGI Group, EdgeConnex, Realterm, Faropoint, Terreno, Sagard and Bridge Industrial, among many others.
