Wolf Commercial Real Estate recently promoted an executive to the role of chief operating officer, while also hiring a new business development officer.
The firm’s new COO, Anthony V. Mannino, joined WCRE in October 2015 and previously served as vice president, corporate strategies. In the new role, he will have a broader focus on the operations and growth strategies of the Marlton-based firm.
His new role comes as WCRE has an expanding presence in the region, adding four new brokers and increasing its activity in southeastern Pennsylvania. Earlier this year, WCRE became a regional affiliate of CORFAC International, a network of independently owned commercial real estate brokerage firms in 47 U.S. markets and worldwide.
“Tony’s guidance within the firm will play a key role in managing our growth, especially as our CORFAC alliance opens up new business opportunities,” said Jason Wolf, managing principal of WCRE. “His efforts will ensure that our team continues to deliver class-leading real estate services to our clients.”
Mannino came to WCRE after nearly 10 years serving as chief of staff to two members of Pennsylvania’s General Assembly. Prior to his years of public service, he spent more than a decade as a litigation attorney in the private sector, practicing in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
He is currently a board member of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority and the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia.
As WCRE’s new business development officer, Tom Bove joined the firm with more than 20 years of sales leadership and business development experience. He will work closely with WCRE’s sales professionals and its director of strategic relationships to generate new business ties with service professionals in the region.
Bove has developed an extensive network of trusted relationships, led sales teams and managed customer accounts for the past two decades, WCRE said. In addition, his experience in the tech and IT sectors will open new avenues of opportunity for WCRE.
“Each new member of our team strengthens our ability to meet specific client needs,” Wolf said. “Tom brings a valuable background as a leader who can build and manage new business relationships, allowing WCRE to serve clients in new ways.”
