Ms. Carlise, who previously worked as the director of operations for Savills Studley’s New York and Boston offices, started her new role in February. She is “work[ing] to drive operational efficiency” alongside Peter Hennessy, the president of the New York tri-state region, according to a spokesman for the real estate company.

Her multifaceted role includes working with human resources and operations management, ensuring administrative and support functions are performing at peak levels and optimizing internal and external continuity of service.
