Former Goldman Sachs asset-management chief Edward Forst has been named president and CEO of real-estate giant Cushman & Wakefield.

Forst will take over from interim CEO Carlo Barel di Sant'Albano next month. Since leaving Goldman in 2011, he has served as an adviser to private-equity firm Fenway Partners.

Forst served as co-head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, which oversaw the bank's hedge funds and alternative investments, beginning in 2007. He took a 16-month break to serve as Harvard University's first executive vice president.
