Alfred Sanzari Enterprises has named a new director of construction, tapping a 13-year veteran of the company to fill the post.
The commercial and residential real estate firm said Thursday that it has promoted John Schleer to the position. In announcing the move, Sanzari said Schleer’s expertise in construction has enabled him to take on roles of increased responsibility and complexity throughout his tenure and that he will continue to oversee all aspects of construction.
Those areas include development projects of varying size and scope, ranging from tenant buildouts to capital improvements and ground-up development, according to a news release. He will also be responsible for coordinating with project engineers and working closely with the leasing department.
“For over a decade, John has demonstrated a proven track record of success, ensuring that each of our development projects have adhered to the highest standards of quality and innovation from beginning to end,” said Ryan Sanzari, chief operating officer at Alfred Sanzari Enterprises. “His leadership and expertise have helped us to not only maintain our current portfolio but have allowed us to consistently deliver modern projects that enhance the communities in which we work. I congratulate John on this well-deserved promotion, and I am certain he will continue to play an integral role in our organization’s success moving forward.”
Schleer, a Randolph resident, joined Alfred Sanzari Enterprises in 2007 as a construction project manager and has risen through the ranks of the department. The firm said he will continue to play an integral role in managing its current portfolio and future project pipeline.
“As I step into this new role, I am excited to build upon Alfred Sanzari Enterprises’ ongoing success as a leading commercial real estate owner, developer and manager,” Schleer said. “With the company’s roots in construction dating back to 1945, I look forward to helping ensure these capabilities remain a key focus of the firm for years to come.”
