Hollister Construction Services has added a new project executive to oversee its growing residential pipeline in the region.
The Parsippany-based firm announced this week that Miguel Serra has joined its ranks, bringing more than 15 years of experience in the industry. He comes to Hollister after most recently serving as senior vice president of development and construction with a commercial real estate firm, where he was involved with completing multimillion dollar projects throughout New Jersey, New York, Illinois and Pennsylvania.
In the new role, he will lead the ground-up construction of key residential assignments in New Jersey and New York.
“Coming from the real estate development side of construction, Miguel brings a unique perspective as he is able to think like an owner during the planning and construction phases,” Hollister President Brendan Murray said. “Miguel’s energy, can-do attitude, humbleness and reliability make him a great fit for our company and culture.”
Serra’s notable projects include the ground-up construction of Harlow, a $75 million luxury apartment project in uptown Hoboken, along with a 23-story building in New York known as The Alexandre Condominiums and the ground-up construction of Steel Works, a residential project in Harrison.
He holds a bachelor’s in business management from New Jersey City University in Jersey City and has earned his certification in construction management from New York University, Hollister said. He is also 10- and 30-hour OSHA-certified.
