Resource Realty of Northern New Jersey has bolstered its team with the addition of a veteran retail industry executive.
The firm announced Friday that Chris Labrosse has joined its Parsippany office, following 14 years with The Children’s Place. He most recently was the Secaucus-based chain’s senior vice president of store development and global logistics, with responsibility for the strategy and negotiation of all domestic and international offices, distribution facilities and more than 1,000 store leases.
“Chris knows firsthand the challenges a corporate real estate client faces because he’s been in that seat for more than a decade,” said Tom Consiglio, principal of Resource Realty’s Parsippany office. “His in-depth knowledge of site selection, lease negotiation and administration, logistics and supply chain will be invaluable as he seeks to provide real estate solutions for the companies he serves.”
Labrosse began his real estate career at The Children’s Place in 2007, working his way through a series of roles before becoming the head of real estate and store development in 2014, according to a news release. In this role, he spearheaded the company’s fleet optimization strategy that resulted in improved fleet health and lease flexibility.
