Mack-Cali Realty Corporation announced that, in a mutual agreement with the Mack-Cali board of directors, Barry Lefkowitz, executive vice president and chief financial officer, and Roger W. Thomas, executive vice president, general counsel and secretary, have agreed to resign from their respective positions effective as of March 31.
Thomas will stay on as a consultant for six months to assist in the transition of his responsibilities.
Both Lefkowitz and Thomas have worked for Mack-Cali and its predecessor companies for more than 20 years.
Anthony Krug, the company’s chief accounting officer, will serve as acting chief financial officer of Mack-Cali, Gary Wagner, vice president and senior associate general counsel, will serve as acting chief legal officer and interim secretary of Mack-Cali, and Ivan Baron, executive vice president and general counsel for Roseland, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mack-Cali, will serve as chief legal officer of Roseland.
Mitchell E. Hersh, president and chief executive officer of Mack-Cali, said the changes reflect the company’s “ongoing strategic transition and will result in significant cost savingsˮ as Mack-Cali continues its diversification into the multi-family sector.
