Manasseri Joins Walter & Samuels Inc.

Industry Veteran to Drive Growth for 85-Year Old Real Estate Firm
August 1, 2018
Joseph A. Manasseri has joined Walter & Samuels Inc. as president.

Based in the firm's New York City office, Manasseri will run the daily operations, oversee assets under management and focus on growing the company’s brand, investment portfolio and overall market share.

Most recently, Manasseri was an executive managing director with Cushman & Wakefield, where he was responsible for growing the asset services business in the Tri-State area. In two years, Manasseri was able to grow the portfolio by 34 percent to 63 million square feet of office, industrial and retail space, according to a release. Before that he spent 25 years as the managing director of global asset management at GE Capital, where he managed the team’s $30 billion-plus debt and REO portfolio consisting of more than 3,200 properties across North America, Europe and Asia.

"Walter & Samuels has maintained a strong reputation for many years," said Manasseri. "I am eager to join the boutique firm at a time when it is focused on growth. Building upon the firm's broad expertise, I intend to develop best practices, procedures and an effective operating rhythm to rebuild the brand for future growth while minimizing risk and maximizing the value of assets."
