Parsippany-based Colliers International announced Friday that industrial specialists Jonathan Tesser and Michael Markey have rejoined the company as executive managing directors.

According to the announcement, Tesser and Markey will focus on providing brokerage and advisory services for selling and leasing industrial real estate in northern and central New Jersey.  In turn, it should enhance the firm’s already successful New Jersey industrial practice and increase market share.

They have worked together as a team for more than 25 years representing both tenants and landlords, the announcement said.  Together, they have arranged approximately 50 million square feet of real estate transactions on behalf of major companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Staples, Sports Authority, Bristol Meyers Squibb, BASF, Synnex Corporation, Axial Corporation, Rema Foods Inc. and Graham Packaging.

“Jon and Mike continue to be two of the most dynamic, successful, and respected real estate professionals in the New Jersey industrial market,” Robert R. Martie, executive vice president of the New Jersey region for Colliers. “They have tremendous relationships with tenants and landlords alike, a truly impressive depth and breadth of market knowledge, and a sophisticated, client-first approach. They are real difference makers. We couldn’t be happier to have them back.”

Tesser is a 27-year industry veteran, the announcement said, and specializes in industrial sales, leasing, development consultation and market analysis.  He joined Colliers originally in 1990.

Markey also originally joined Colliers in 1990, the announcement said.

Prior to Colliers, they booth held senior executive positions at Jones Lang LaSalle.
