“Both Ed and Rob bring unmatched experience and knowledge in their respective areas
of work, which
puts us in the
best position to
complete the
of Harborside
and help attract
tenants and
win business
as companies return to the office
with a new list of requirements and considerations,” said MaryAnne Gilmartin, Mack-Cali’s board chair
and interim CEO. “Companies today are demanding more control of every aspect of the work ecosystem, and Harborside is one of the only true campus destinations that provides that comfort and is accessible from around the region.”
The REIT’s plan to modernize and draw new tenants to Harborside is several years in the making, including steps such as new dining and retail options, amenity upgrades and a planned overhaul of the exterior of Harborside 1, 2 and 3. Mack-Cali
is continuing with its plan under Gilmartin, who has taken the reins after a recent board shakeup and the ouster of former CEO Michael DeMarco.
The company has also turned over parts of its management team in recent weeks. Guiltinan, who brings 30
