Levin Management Corp. has announced a new addition to its leasing team to oversee several retail properties in northern and central New Jersey.
The firm, which is based in North Plainfield, said it hired Ed Vasconcellos III as a leasing representative. He comes to LMC from Brookfield Properties, where he held the same title, and is responsible for leasing and marketing efforts at seven open-air properties:
- Bordentown Plaza in Bordentown
- Hamilton Plaza in Hamilton
- North Village Shopping Center in North Brunswick
- Middlesex Plaza in Middlesex
- Paramus Place in Paramus
- West Orange Plaza in West Orange
- Rutgers Plaza in Somerset
“Joining Levin Management is an incredible career opportunity,” Vasconcellos said. “Open-air centers — which house essential retail categories like grocery, dining and home improvement — are among the strongest asset classes today and have proven resilient in every economic climate. These centers comprise the bulk of LMC’s portfolio, which gives this company a distinctive position in the marketplace. I am looking forward to being part of this dynamic firm’s continued success.”
The Rahway resident joins LMC amid a period of sustained growth, the firm said, noting that it maintains a leasing and management portfolio currently spanning 110 properties with nearly 15.5 million square feet. He has also held positions with The Dartmouth Co. and Robert K. Futterman & Associates, having earned a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University.
Vasconcellos, a licensed New Jersey real estate salesperson, is also a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and the Urban Land Institute.
“We are pleased to welcome Ed to Levin Management,” said Sidney Singer, LMC’s vice president of leasing. “As we continue to grow our award-winning leasing and management portfolio, Ed’s wealth of talent, energy and industry knowledge further strengthens our leasing team. His well-rounded experience will be of significant benefit to our clients and their shopping centers.”
