Advance Realty has hired two new directors, who are among five recent additions for the Bridgewater-based developer and manager.
John Clark joined Advance as director of corporate property services and is responsible for energy procurement, tenant improvements and capital expenditure construction projects, according to a news release. He is also expanding the company’s tenant service offerings.
Prior to joining Advance, Clark was vice president of operations at Bayonne-based Ernest Construction. He holds more than 17 years of experience managing construction and operations at commercial properties throughout New Jersey.
Also joining Advance is Lauren Dunn, who will serve as director of people and talent, the news release said. She will continue to support the company’s growth by overseeing all human resources activity including recruiting, hiring, employee team-building activities and internal learning initiatives.
Previously, Dunn spent nine years with the Harvest Restaurant Group, where she assisted in leading recruiting and hiring, as well as training and development operations.
“We are tremendously excited to welcome John and Lauren, as both bring a wide-range of skill sets and years of valuable experience to Advance,” said Daniel Cocoziello, principal and managing director of Advance Realty. “We look forward to the incredible value each of them will add to our hardworking team as we continue to expand and enhance our diverse portfolio.”
Advance’s three other recent hires include Stefanie Jaworski as accounting manager, Tejinder Panwar as development accounting manager and Jessica Rozzi as executive administrative assistant.
“Advance has experienced considerable growth and a steadily expanding portfolio over the last three years, not only with new multifamily and industrial projects throughout New Jersey, but also in our continuing work to transform our retail centers and offices campuses into modern, desirable destinations,” said Alexander Cocoziello, principal and managing director of Advance Realty. “With our continued expansion, it’s more important than ever that we have a strong team to support and guide one another as we further Advance’s long history of success and innovation.”
