It’s an honor to welcome John as Chief Operating Officer and I look forward to his many contributions as he assumes responsibility for day-to-day operations.”

A graduate of Bucknell University, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Simone began his real estate career as Vice President of the Albanese Organization (Garden City, NY) before joining NAI Long Island (Melville, NY) where he successfully completed millions of square feet of sales and leasing transactions. Acting as Managing Partner, Simone guided the firm’s growth of its brokerage and management services into one of the leading real estate service firms in the tri-state area and orchestrated the successful sale of the company to Cushman & Wakefield in 2019. Most recently, he served as Vice President-Development at Mattone Investors (Westbury, NY), overseeing several large re-positioning projects in Queens, Brooklyn, and Long Island.

“Cord Meyer is actively exploring development opportunities while strengthening its existing assets and marketplace relationships,” concluded Whalen. “More than ever, it is critical that someone with John’s level of senior real estate experience serve as COO. His intricate understanding of all aspects of commercial and residential property will serve us well as John develops and implements the strategies, procedures, and business plans needed to enhance company growth and position Cord Meyer for future success.”
