Top Staubach Exec Jumps To Rival

In June, we reported the scuttlebutt that some Staubach Co. execs would likely flee the company following its acquisition by Chicago’s Jones Lang LaSalle. Now, heavy-hitting VP Jeff Ellerman–a 10-year Staubach vet and one of D CEO‘s top Power Players in commercial real estate–has just hit the road for CB Richard Ellis, DFW’s biggest commercial brokerage. Ellerman’s title there will be vice chairman. Speaking of post-“merger” defections, a JLL spokeswoman says a July 20 letter in the DMN lamenting a “huge number” of Staubach layoffs in the wake of the deal was “off-based” and “not accurate.” However, she adds, “some instances of overlap may be identified during the integration process, and please know that in these cases the focus is always on treating our people with fairness and consideration.”

    Ellerman + SMU Cox = Top Exec

    In addition to Ellerman, the Dallas regional office has also lost seven other major players…millions in revenue have walked out the door. To date, they’ve lost Sharon Morrison, Blake Anderson, Brant Landry, and Bill de la Chappelle, top industrial brokers, Derrick Evers and Jim Donaldson, key players in the construction group, and Karra Guess, well known office broker and COO. The merger has not gone well in Dallas and most of the professionals and staff are miserable. The company has a whole has lost nearly a quarter of its workforce nationwide.
