Cushman & Wakefield Appoints New West Region Lead

Appointments, Real Estate, Americas

Cushman & Wakefield has announced the appointment of Sandra Boyle, CPM, LEED AP, as Asset Services Lead for the West Region of the United States.


Based in San Francisco, Boyle has over 30 years of experience in commercial real estate with exceptional expertise in asset and portfolio management, project management and ground-up development.


In her new leadership role within Cushman & Wakefield, Sandra will be responsible for growing the firm’s Asset Services portfolio in the West Region with a focus on client care, team engagement, developing best practices and talent recruitment. Her territorial responsibility includes the states of California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and Texas.


Boyle joined Cushman & Wakefield in 2011 as Director of Asset Services and soon thereafter moved into the Chief Operating Officer role for San Francisco. Most recently, Sandra served as City Lead for the firm’s Asset Services' 54 million-square-foot (msf) Northern California portfolio. She has been instrumental in the growth of the firm’s West Region portfolio, helping establish relationships with many of Cushman & Wakefield’s key clients in Northern California and across the West Region. Prior to Cushman & Wakefield, she was an Executive Vice President of Asset Management and Development for Glenborough, LLC where she directed many of the company’s core functions and corporate divisions.


Announcing the appointment, Marla Maloney, Cushman & Wakefield’s President of Asset Services in the Americas, said:

"Sandra is an accomplished, elite leader with a tremendous passion for client service and a successful career spanning many industry disciplines. Her leadership, knowledge, effective communication and ability to partner with key business leaders will ensure we continue to drive exceptional client results and bolster our talented West Region team."


Andrew McDonald, Cushman & Wakefield’s President of the West Region, added:

"As a firm, we remain wholly committed to continuing to put the best people in the right places, especially as it pertains to our leadership structure. For many years, Sandra has been a remarkable leader, mentor and role model with Cushman & Wakefield and we are thrilled to promote her to this upper echelon position, where she will maintain her sharp focus on maximizing value for our clients."


Boyle's resume is further enhanced by her active, and influential, roles within the real estate industry as well as her community. She was the founding Chair of the BOMA San Francisco Foundation, a 501C3 that was formed to promote commercial real estate workforce development through funding curriculum development in the local colleges and universities. (Notably, in what marked a groundbreaking appointment, in the mid-1990s Sandra became the first female President of BOMA San Francisco in the association’s 85-year history—she also later went on to become the first female Chair of the National Advisory Counsel for BOMA International). She has also served on the Board of Directors of the San Mateo Police Athletic League and was instrumental in forming a scholarship program for troubled youth—Sandra also partially self-funded the scholarship program. As a result of her dedicated effort, she is now an Honorary Board Member.


She has also been honored with many industry and community-oriented accolades, most recently including: San Francisco Business Times Woman of Influence, 2019, CONNECT Media Women in Real Estate, 2018, the Cushman & Wakefield CIS Leadership Award, San Francisco Business Times Woman of Influence, 2015 (whilst serving as as Cushman & Wakefield’s COO in San Francisco), and BOMA Principal Member of the Year, 2012.
