Pierson Commercial has made a new addition to its retail brokerage team.
The Marlboro-based firm announced this week that it has hired Neil Ruppert. In his new role, he will be tasked with expanding Pierson’s deep portfolio of commercial projects, representing both landlords and retailers throughout New Jersey.
“We are thrilled to welcome Neil to our growing team of dedicated and knowledgeable brokers at Pierson Commercial,” said Jason Pierson, president of Pierson Commercial. “We place a high emphasis on hiring professionals that match our culture, and his tireless work ethic, strong communication skills and team player credentials make him a perfect fit.”
“Neil has already begun assisting on some of our most high-profile projects, and we look forward to having him on board as we continue our growth.”
Prior to joining Pierson Commercial, Ruppert was a student-athlete at Monmouth University, where he received a business degree in real estate from the Kislak Real Estate Institute.
“Pierson’s reputation as a premier commercial retail real estate brokerage is well-known across New Jersey,” Ruppert said. “The firm’s success and broad portfolio are a testament to its unrivaled professionalism and market insights.
“I could not be more excited to join an already deep and accomplished team of professionals, and look forward to using my unique experience and skills to help broaden its already considerable reach.”
Pierson, founded in 2011, represents clients including high-profile regional and national retailers, according to a news release. Its team has been tasked with marketing more than 2 million square feet of retail space, including major downtown redevelopments, ground-up developments and existing shopping centers throughout central and northern New Jersey.
“Pierson prides itself on balancing the sophistication and resources of a large corporation with the entrepreneurial mindset and efficiency of a boutique firm,” Pierson said. “Our tremendous growth and success is due in no small part to our hardworking staff and culture of putting our clients first. Neil is a perfect representation of our values, and his hire will help enable our continued expansion in the years to come.”
