New York-based real estate and private equity firm Savanna has hired Todd E. Korren as principal, director of leasing.
Korren, with over 26 years of experience in the real estate and construction industries, including stints at the Witkoff Group, Insignia/ESG (now CB Richard Ellis) and StructureTone, comes to Savanna from Swig Equities.
