Golub & Company has announced the addition of Erica Rogers as vice president to the company’s downtown Chicago office leasing team. A 27-year veteran of the Chicago commercial real estate industry, Ms. Rogers will work closely with Sandy Macaluso, senior vice president and leader of the firm’s commercial leasing practice. In her new role, Ms. Rogers will play an integral role in the leasing of 300 South Wacker Drive, 111 West Washington Street, 444 North Michigan Avenue, 625 North Michigan Avenue and 680 North Lake Shore Drive.

Most recently, Ms. Rogers spent four years as an agency leasing representative for JLL’s suburban and downtown office portfolio. During this time, she leased prominent buildings in the O’Hare and North suburban submarkets including One Northbrook Place, The Reserve at Deer Park and O’Hare Plaza in addition to downtown Chicago assets including 1 N. Wacker Drive and 222 S. Riverside Plaza. Between 1997 and 2017, Ms. Rogers held similar roles with Avison Young and CBRE, and counts Aon Center and Merchandise Mart among the more noteworthy properties she leased during that time.

“We are thrilled to welcome Erica to the Golub office leasing team,” said Ms. Macaluso. “She brings a depth of experience that will be critical as we begin to welcome tenants back into our downtown properties and seek to fill key vacancies. She understands how to position properties for success during market highs and lows,” she added.

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our revered and beloved employee, Debbie Frank. Debbie approached her battle with cancer as she did everything in life – with strength, determination and humor. Tragically, she passed on December 16, 2020, leaving behind her husband and young daughter.

Debbie’s expertise in commercial real estate leasing ran deep. Her 20-year career began in New York City, where she worked on the iconic Rockefeller Center. Debbie joined Golub & Company in 2006 and spent the next 14 years building relationships in the Chicago real estate community and organizations supporting the advancement of women in CRE such as CREW Chicago and The Goldie Initiative. She played a key role in stabilizing many high-profile Golub assets including 875 N. Michigan Avenue (formerly the John Hancock Center) and 300 South Wacker Drive, and was promoted to senior vice president and leader of our expanding commercial portfolio in 2017.

“Debbie’s immense talent for business and deep compassion for others earned her the love, trust and respect of all who had the joy of working with her here at Golub & Company,” said Golub Principals Michael Newman, Lee Golub and Paula Harris. “Her bright light, warm smile, wicked sense of humor and infectious joie de vivre will truly be missed. It will be our mission to ensure that Debbie’s legacy lives on.”
