A second generation has joined the leadership team at Kimmerle Group, an architecture and project management firm based in Harding Township.
The company announced that Robert Kimmerle, son of founder and President George J. Kimmerle, has rejoined its ranks in the role of chief financial officer. In the new position, he will focus on financial and consultative support for all real estate development efforts, including modeling and pro formas and financial sourcing.
Robert Kimmerle will also take leadership on other administrative areas within the firm, working closely with George Kimmerle and Managing Director Patrick Luzzi to support business development and real estate assignments for the firm’s corporate and health clients.
“I am optimistic about the future growth of Kimmerle Group and am honored to be part of such a talented, seasoned team,” Robert Kimmerle said. “As we continue our expansion plans in the New York metro area and in the United States, we will maintain our focus on philanthropy and pursuit of project work in the areas of residential and commercial real estate, higher education and health care.”
Prior to rejoining Kimmerle Group, he served for more than a decade as the financial controller of ADP’s corporate payroll services within its U.S. portfolio, according to a news release. In that role, he concentrated on corporate real estate and facilities management, while also overseeing select international operations for the company.
The role allowed the younger Kimmerle to develop and present business cases for strategic real estate portfolio decisions, both domestically and abroad, the news release said. He also launched the creation of a centralized corporate facilities management function, as well as the successful transition of financial management services to a third-party provider model.
With Kimmerle Group, he joins a firm made up of six divisions: Kimmerle Newman Architects, Urban Studio, Real Estate Services, Workspace, Project Management and Branding.
