Halstead Management Company, LLC, has brought together its top leadership to form an official Executive Advisory Board to advise on all company matters.
Dubbed a “brain trust” by the firm, the five-member Executive Advisory Board will be led by Halstead Management Company’s President Paul Gottsegen with leaders from firms with which Halstead has merged in the last several years of its growth.
Sherry Frankel, Martha Goupit, Ronni Lynn Hart and Leslie Winkler will for the rest of the board that will meet regularly to review and create “strategic and tailored solutionsˮ for each property under management, and set new company-wide goals.
Arthur W. Zeckendorf, David Burris, William Lie Zeckendorf and Kent Swig, Co-Chairmen of Terra Holdings, Halstead’s parent company, announced the formation of the Advisory Board.
“When we founded Halstead Management Company, we envisioned not just growing the company through acquisitions, but also engaging the successful and talented principals and executives of these firms to create a diverse environment with breadth of specialties in all areas of property management,” said Burris.
“What we have accomplished with this Executive Advisory Board is the ability to offer New York City properties an unrivaled level of service, thoughtfulness and expertise that is only possible when you bring some of the best real estate minds together in one room.”
Paul Gottsegenis a 25-year veteran in the residential real estate industry. He joined Halstead 12 years ago to help launch its property management company, owning and oeprating his own Soren Management, Inc., before that and serving as amanaging director at Insignia Residential Group. As president of the firm, he oversees all of the firm’s and advisory board initiatives.
Sherry Frankel opted to merge her management firm, Caran Properties with Halstead in 2011. Her partner in that business, Martha Goupit, brings over two decades of experience to her role at Halstead.
Goupit works in daily partnership with Leslie Winkler and Paul Gottsegen to integrate the collective companies, maximizing their strengths to deliver service.
Ronni Arougheti Hart, an attorney specializing in real estate law and finance, was the founder of Heron Ltd., a NYC residential and commercial property management firm that merged into Halstead in 2004.
Leslie Winkler has created a niche within the industry, working and certifying budgets for new development offering plans.
In addition to traditional property management, she is one of the most sought after experts for preparing first year operating budgets for newly constructed and/or converted properties.
According to Gottsegen, the Executive Advisory Board will grow in the future as Halstead Management continues to grow.
“We have room at the top for professionals to make significant leadership contributions,” he said. “Halstead Management is the only company building a collective talent of leadership to inform our delivery of service and maintain our edge of excellence.
“We are delighted to formalize this intent with the creation of the Executive Advisory Board and set a new standard for outstanding service in property management from the top down.”
