G.S. Wilcox & Co. has elevated both Wesley and Bridget Wilcox to partner, marking the next generation of ownership for the Morristown-based mortgage banking firm.
The son and daughter of Gretchen Wilcox, who founded the company
in 1994, the new principals joined its team in
2016 and 2019, respectively. Since then, the firm said, they have played
a key role in
growing a business that already had deep ties
to the state’s commercial real estate industry.
“I am personally very proud to announce the
dual promotions
of my children

Alfred Sanzari Enterprises has named Jessica Halpin as its general manager of Glenpointe, the firm’s flagship 670,000-square-foot corporate campus in Teaneck.
An industry veteran with nearly
20 years of property management experience at office buildings across New Jersey, Halpin will manage day-to-day operations for the 50-acre campus at 300, 400 and 500 Frank W. Burr Blvd., including maintenance, improvements, parking and tenant service. She will also work closely with ASE’s leadership team to
plan and oversee ongoing capital improvements as the company continues to position the property to meet the needs of a rapidly changing workforce.
“While workplaces have changed a lot since we first constructed Glenpointe in the 1980s, what has remained unchanged is
our commitment
to superior
tenant service
and investing in
the campus to
ensure it reflects
the needs and
desires of
today’s tenants,”
said Ryan Sanzari, president of Alfred Sanzari Enterprises. “As we continue to welcome employees back to Glenpointe, we are confident that Jessica’s demonstrated track record of success and focus on service will ensure that Glenpointe continues
to stand out as the tristate area’s premier corporate campus.”
Prior to joining Sanzari, Halpin served as a senior property manager
for Newmark, where she managed
a 630,000-square-foot campus consisting of six office buildings
and positioned the property for sale. Halpin was also recently named to the board of directors for the Building Owners and Management Association of New Jersey.
“Throughout my career, I have always been deeply impressed with Alfred Sanzari Enterprises’ commitment
to hands-on asset management and consistent capital investments to ensure their spaces stand out in
a crowded marketplace,” Halpin said. “My new role presents a rare opportunity to build upon this tradition of excellence as Alfred Sanzari Enterprises continues to ensure Glenpointe is well-positioned for the future of work.”
