SJP Properties has hired a veteran property manager to support its growing line of construction services and other third-party offerings.
The developer announced Thursday that Christina Honthy has joined the company as director of asset management, bringing more than 25 years of experience in executive administration, property management and mentorship. She joins the firm from Newmark Knight Frank and will work closely with SJP Senior Vice President Andrew Natale and Executive Vice President Peter Bronsnick in the pursuit of new business opportunities and joint venture relationships, particularly as it relates to the growth of its third-party construction and property management unit, SJP Project Solutions.
Honthy will also support SJP’s property management and human resources platforms.
“Christina’s managerial experience and expertise across a variety of asset classes make her ideal for this role, and we’re excited for the contributions she will make in helping us grow our third-party services business, while continuing our proud legacy of superior property management throughout our own portfolio,” Natale said. “Our pipeline for SJP Project Solutions is extremely healthy, and we know Christina’s relationships and strategic insights will help us expand even further.”
Honthy most recently was an associate director of management services for Newmark Knight Frank in New Jersey. She joined the firm initially as a senior property manager for a 1.4 million-square-foot Lehigh Valley portfolio owned by CapTrust and Penncap Properties.
In late 2015, Honthy was promoted to associate director and began to support the regional director on business development, client and vendor relationships, staffing, quality controls and procedural oversight, according to a news release. She has managed upwards of 80 employees at one time and has supported property portfolios totaling over 6 million square feet, including office, retail, residential and multifamily, medical and flex-warehouse for a wide range of tenants.
Honthy earned her bachelor’s in business administration from Centenary University and holds Real Estate Salesperson licenses in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the news release said. An active member of BOMA, CoreNet and CREW, she also serves on the board of the County Alcoholism Steering Subcommittee for Hunterdon County and Municipal Alliance.
She has been previously selected for the 2014 Newmark Knight Frank Property Management Team of the Year Award, the 2016 Hunterdon County Volunteer of the Year under the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and the 2018 BOMA Heart Award.
“SJP has a history of excellence that is truly unmatched, and I’m thrilled to be joining an organization that is committed to leading from the front in setting the industry standard for first-rate asset, construction and property management,” Honthy said. “I’m looking forward to both contributing to and learning from this team of distinguished professionals as we fuel the growth of Project Solutions in the months and years to come.”
Since launching SJP Project Solutions in 2018, the division has grown to include assignments totaling over 500,000 square feet of build-out and ground-up construction projects, the news release said. Notable projects include the repositioning of Mack-Cali Realty Corp.’s Harborside complex in Jersey City, the build-out of EY’s offices in Hoboken and the build-out of SIR Capital Management’s offices at 11 Times Square in Manhattan, among others.
