Diversified Properties LLC has bolstered its executive team with the addition of a new vice president and corporate counsel.
The Montville-based firm on Thursday announced the hiring of Douglas Angoff, who brings more than 20 years of real estate law and development experience to his new position. He joins Diversified after serving as land development and general counsel for several local and national developers, including Kushner Cos., Kara Homes and Lennar.
In his new role, he will be responsible for co-managing the development pipeline, assisting with loan closings, negotiating contracts and general legal work.
“We are pleased to welcome Doug to Diversified Properties,” said Nicholas Minoia, Diversified Properties’ founder and managing partner. “At this period of significant company growth, his business acumen, knowledge of land use statutes and broad expertise in real estate development make him an invaluable addition to our leadership team.”
Minoia added that Angoff’s experience in all aspects of transactions and leases, redevelopment, environmental law and real estate and business due diligence will play a significant role as the company’s portfolio expands throughout the New York and New Jersey metro region.
Angoff earned his bachelor’s from Syracuse University, a master’s in real estate development and investment from New York University and a J.D. from Emory Law School, according to a news release. He is licensed to practice law in New Jersey and is a member of the New Jersey Bar.
