PARSIPPANY — Transwestern announced industry veteran Lisa Addeo has joined the firm’s New Jersey office as director of operations. As the Parsippany office continues its expansion, Addeo will oversee operations, finance and compliance activities, with a special focus on supporting the firm’s brokerage professionals. She will also pursue business development opportunities, and will manage client-service initiatives. Transwestern is located at 300 Kimball Drive, First Floor.
“Lisa has a stellar background and an excellent reputation,” said James Postell, Transwestern partner and city leader. “Transwestern will benefit greatly from her extensive industry knowledge, and as we continue to expand, her energetic personality makes her an ideal fit for Transwestern’s entrepreneurial environment.”
With over 15 years of commercial and residential real estate experience, Addeo was formerly chief financial officer at a New Jersey-based development firm, where she oversaw all aspects of redevelopment projects, in addition to overseeing daily office and finance operations. Previously, she worked at Walsh Company, LLC, and later Avison Young, as vice president of finance and operations, managing budgeting, forecasting, payroll and human resources for the company’s New York City, Boston, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey offices.
“The enthusiastic team and creative atmosphere that exists at Transwestern played huge roles in my decision to join the firm,” Addeo said. “There’s a unique culture at Transwestern, which is known for investing time in its employees and fostering growth. I’m extremely excited to join the team, and I look forward to contributing to the firm’s future success.”
Transwestern was recently named the No. 2 “Best Place to Work” in New Jersey by NJBIZ and has landed a top spot on the list for four consecutive years.
