VTS is the only Proptech company recognized amongst New York commercial real estate’s most powerful players
NEW YORK, NEW YORK—August 13, 2020—VTS, the commercial real estate industry's leading leasing and asset management platform, today announced that its CEO and Co-Founder, Nick Romito, has been named to Commercial Observer’s annual The Power 100 list. The list honors the most prominent real estate players of the year throughout the industry, including developers, investors, brokers, tenants, architects, and more. This recognition underscores the growing importance of the Proptech industry and VTS’ role as the premier leasing and asset management solution used by 10 of the top 10 office landlords (by square footage) in Manhattan.
“It’s a true honor to be recognized by Commercial Observer on this year’s The Power 100 list,” stated Romito. “This year has brought unprecedented challenges to commercial real estate. I’m proud of what VTS has been able to accomplish for the industry and am humbled to be named amongst some of the most notable and accomplished names in New York’s real estate community. Furthermore, as the leader of the only PropTech company acknowledged on the list, this represents the rise in importance of technology as critical for operating a commercial portfolio.”
Romito was recognized for leading VTS through an outstanding year, most notably with the launch of VTS Market, the commercial real estate industry’s first integrated, online marketing platform that enables landlords and their agency teams to market and lease their available spaces remotely for the first time. With VTS Market, landlords finally have a fully-digital, data-driven way to market and lease their spaces online—all from within the VTS platform they use to manage their leasing and asset management activities today. With the majority of the market’s largest owners onboard since its official launch this June, such as Tishman Speyer, SL Green, Brookfield Properties, Empire State Realty Trust, Hines, Oxford Properties Group, and RXR, VTS Market has become the most rapidly adopted product in Proptech history.
