Romito Recognized Amongst Industry’s Top Executives,
Exhibiting Strength And Grace Amid Immense Uncertainty
NEW YORK—April 9, 2021—VTS, the commercial real estate industry's leading leasing, marketing and asset management platform, today announced its Chief Executive Officer, Nick Romito has been named one of CRE’s Best Bosses by leading industry publication GlobeSt. This inaugural distinction recognizes transformational leaders who have inspired colleagues during the countless challenges faced during COVID-19, while simultaneously driving their companies to new heights.
“I’m incredibly honored to be named as one of commercial real estate’s Best Bosses by GlobeSt,” said Romito. “This year has been defined by unprecedented challenges that no one was prepared to steer through. I’m fortunate to work alongside some of the most passionate and talented individuals in the industry whose dedication to helping our clients navigate and excel in this unchartered territory, continues to motivate me each and every day. I proudly share this recognition with the entire VTS team.”
Romito was recognized for his commitment and passion for keeping VTS’ culture alive once its 350 employees suddenly found themselves working from home. He consistently leads the company’s growing team with empathy in one of the most taxing years in recent history, emphasizing the importance of a work-life balance and providing generous perks and benefits packages. This includes providing employees with a budget to set up a work from home space, and covering Disney+ subscriptions and hosting weekly virtual storytime for working parents. Under Romito’s stewardship, the company executed on a number of key initiatives outlined within their 2020 Strategic and Diversity Inclusion Plan, with a heightened sense of urgency.
Furthermore, Romito continued to support his staff as they worked towards launching two highly anticipated products, VTS Market, the industry’s first integrated, online marketing platform and VTS Data, the industry’s only forward-looking data product, both of which were in the works prior to the onset of COVID-19. Additionally, the company launched its VTS Office Demand Index, released monthly, which is the industry’s earliest available measure of demand for office space leasing, locally and nationally.
“Nick’s inspiration for VTS is core to his leadership tactics—he’s never veered away from his mission of fundamentally changing the industry for the better,” said Amy Millard, CMO of VTS. “Nick leads by example, transparency and empathy. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty and pitches in wherever it is needed—whether to close the deal, hire a candidate, or ideate with our product team.”
