Silverstein Properties has named current chief investment officer Tal Kerret the company’s president, Silverstein chairman Larry Silverstein announced this morning.
Mr. Kerret joined Silverstein as an executive vice president in 2011, originating the Silver Suites Offices shared office space at 7 World Trade Center and managing the corporate and short-term rental housing at the Silver Suites Residences at Silver Towers and at Beekman Tower, company officials said.
“I am delighted to appoint Tal to the position of president,” Mr. Silverstein said in a prepared statement. “Over the past four years, he has proven himself to be an outstanding professional and a great asset to our company. Even as the leadership of Silverstein Properties is undergoing a professional transition under our CEO Marty Burger, we continue to be a family company.”
Prior to joining Silverstein, Mr. Kerret helped launch two tech and media firms and served six years in the Israeli Defense Forces. He’ll now join the Silverstein executive team alongside Messrs. Silverstein, Burger and chief operating officer Mickey Kupperman.
“Over the past four years, I have had the pleasure of working with Larry, Marty, Mickey and the entire Silverstein organization,” Mr. Kerret said. “Our company has a fantastic brand and reputation all over the world, thanks to its employees, properties and projects. I look forward to continuing my work overseeing investment activity, as well as growing the company and its businesses for many years to come.”
