Chicago, IL | December 11, 2018

MB Real Estate (MBRE) announced today that William “Bill” A. Truszkowski will join the firm’s brokerage team after the first of the year as a Senior Vice President & Managing Director for MBRE’s Leasing Services division. Bill has over 20 years of experience in Chicago commercial real estate and will, along with Mark Buth, direct activity for the division’s leasing portfolio.

“Bill has a tremendous amount of experience successfully representing building owners and is known throughout the industry for his creativity and deal-making skills,” said Kevin Purcell, President of MBRE Asset Management and Leasing Services. “Building owners want more than order-takers, they want value-creators. There’s a void in the market and that’s where Bill and the MBRE team will succeed.”

 Prior to joining MBRE, Bill was a Senior Vice President at Telos Group where he directed property leasing for a three-building portfolio in downtown Chicago totaling 4.8 million square feet. At Telos, Bill was responsible for negotiating Citadel’s new 439,000 SF lease at 131 S. Dearborn, one of the largest lease transactions in the CBD in 2017, as well as the repositioning of the Prudential Plaza which helped increase occupancy from 34% to 92% in 2.5 years.

“Now more than ever, institutional real estate owners are relying upon independent real estate firms for their commercial real estate needs,” said Bill. “MB Real Estate provides a nimble, full-service platform without the bureaucracy and constraints found at the national brokerage firms. I’m excited to thrive in Chicago’s downtown agency leasing business with my team at MB Real Estate.”

 Additionally, Bill spent nearly 14 years with John Buck Company where he directed activity for a five-building portfolio. During his time at John Buck, Bill played a major role in leasing a number of premier office buildings, including the ground-up leasing of 155 N. Wacker Drive, a 1,152,953 square foot high-rise in Chicago’s Loop.

Bill earned a B.S. in Business Administration from Washington University in St. Louis and a M.B.A. in Marketing and Economics from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
