SJP Properties, one of the New York metropolitan area's most active development companies, has announced the appointment of Jeffrey Schotz, who joins the company as an Executive Vice President. Schotz is recognized as one of the most respected and experienced leasing and marketing professionals in New Jersey's commercial real estate marketplace, with nearly 30 years of experience having worked for many of the region's largest development and commercial real estate brokerage firms throughout his distinguished career.

In his new role, Schotz will oversee the leasing and marketing activities for SJP's multi-million square-foot portfolio of Class A office buildings and build-to-suit properties in suburban New Jersey, including Somerset Corporate Center in Bridgewater, Morris Corporate Center in Parsippany and 140 Allen Road in Liberty Corner.

"The addition of Jeff Schotz to our team continues our longstanding tradition of attracting the best and brightest talent to our organization," stated Steven J. Pozycki, CEO of SJP Properties. "One of the distinguishing characteristics of SJP is the continued investment we make in building our internal team, and this appointment is a perfect reflection of this ongoing commitment. Jeff brings strong relationships with the commercial real estate brokerage and corporate communities, and I am delighted to welcome him to our senior leadership team at what is a very exciting time in our company's history."

Most recently, Schotz served as Executive Managing Officer at FirstService Williams New Jersey, where he was responsible for overseeing all of the firm's service lines, with an emphasis on the strategic development and expansion of the firm's capabilities.

Before joining FirstService Williams, Schotz held senior executive positions at Reckson Associates Realty Corp., now known as RXR Realty, where he was a Senior Vice President and Managing Director responsible for overseeing the company's 3.5 million-square-foot portfolio throughout New Jersey.

Prior to joining Reckson, Schotz was Senior Vice President of CB Richard Ellis in New Jersey, where he was Branch Manager for the firm's Brokerage Services group. During his tenure at CB Richard Ellis, the New Jersey division saw revenue increase by more than 50 percent.

Additionally, Schotz previously served as the Vice President of Leasing and a Partner for more than 10 years at the Mack Company, prior to its merger with Cali Associates Realty Corp., now known as Mack-Cali, where he was responsible for the leasing and marketing of a 15-million-square-foot office and industrial portfolio in New Jersey.

Schotz began his career at Alfred Sanzari Enterprises, where he rose to the position of Vice President of Leasing and Marketing, and was instrumental in the successful leasing of the company's Glenpointe project in Teaneck, N.J.

"SJP's reputation in the New York metropolitan region is unsurpassed," stated Schotz. "As a leader in the development of best-in-class office properties, SJP has established an incredible track record in New Jersey, and I look forward to joining the fantastic team that Steve has assembled, as well as contributing to the company's ongoing success and being in a position to continue to work closely with my peers in the commercial real estate brokerage community."
