JRT Realty Group appoints Judd Chief Operating Officer


New York, NY — JRT Realty Group, one of the nation’s largest certified woman-owned commercial real estate firms, announced the hiring of Andrew Judd as COO. He will be based in New York City and report to Jodi Pulice, founder and CEO of JRT Realty.

“Andrew has been a friend and colleague for more than twenty years and, along with JRT’s strategic alliance with Cushman & Wakefield, he has consistently supported our mission to bring diversity into the realm of commercial real estate,” Pulice said. “Andrew’s combination of skills, experience, and industry stature will be leveraged immediately as our firm is poised for rapid growth.”

An industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience, Judd will spearhead the firm’s efforts to help Fortune 500 firms and others maximize their Tier 1 and Tier 2 supplier diversity spending mandates as many seek to be part of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, an elite group of companies that reach $1 billion in spending with minority- and women-owned firms. Internally, he will be responsible for business strategies, operating plans and procedures, new business development and existing account oversight, recruitment and retention initiatives, and cross-selling the firm’s breadth of real estate services to its clients. He will also oversee the firm’s staff, including leasing and sales brokers, account managers, marketing and corporate communications specialists, and support personnel.

“This is an incredible opportunity to join a mission-driven organization and work together with the leadership team to chart the path forward for JRT, which is on an upward trajectory,” Judd said. “My career has come full circle, returning to the New York City market where I first got my start in the industry. I’m excited for our growth plans and the opportunity to have a direct and meaningful impact nationally, in New York City and within the commercial real estate industry at large.”

Pulice noted that while diversity and inclusion have historically been treated as afterthoughts or as ideas that merely “check off the box,” one of JRT’s core principles is to create new and lasting opportunities in commercial real estate for women, people of color, and other groups who are often under-represented in the industry in order to create generational wealth.
