According to Michael Mul- lin , IBS president, this ex- ecutive-level addition ties to increased opportunities and stepped-up demand for real estate technology solutions that enhance productivity and profit margins. “This is an exciting time in the commercial real es- tate tech arena,” Mullin said. “Today’s robust, cloud-based applications are targeting in- dustry-specific needs – bring- ing mobility and transparency to construction and property management enterprise ac- counting, and easing historic ‘pain points’ like effective office/field communication, project estimating and time reporting. With the increas- ing influence of a tech-savvy generation in c-suite decision- making, there exists extraor- dinary potential for estab- lished companies like IBS.” To that end, Lehman will oversee sales and marketing for IBS’s two core products: Imperium Powered by Acu- matica, a proprietary, cloud- based property management OLD BRIDGE, NJ — R .J.

said Hatfield. “In each case, these companies conducted an exhaustive search and vetted the buildings and complex with their architects and engineers to affirm that the complex was built to a standard that far exceeds that of other class A buildings in the market. The construction of new amenities, a pastoral setting within Princ- eton University’s Forrestal Campus and an ideal location set this campus apart. The building’s ownership group is comprised of sophisticated and transaction-oriented profes- sionals who understand how to offer value to multinational tenants by making improve- ments designed to help them

attract and retain a strong employee base.” In Mount Laurel, Evan Zweben , of Colliers concluded a long term lease at 3906 Church Rd. on behalf of the owner. When the current owner purchased it in 2011, 3906 Church Rd. was fully leased to American Water.
