Avison Young Brings in Dorothy Alpert as Tri-State President

Dorothy L. Alpert is joining Avison Young as its new Tri-State president and principal, with Arthur Mirante transitioning to the role of Tri-State chairman. Alpert joins Avison Young following a 30-plus year career at Deloitte, where she focused on strategy and operations consulting in the real estate industry, leading the firm’s real estate services practice in the U.S.  

“Dorothy’s unmatched background and decades of experience are perfectly aligned to our operational, talent platform and technology strategies as we strive to help all our clients realize the full potential of their real estate,” said Mark E. Rose, chair and CEO of Avison Young.  

As Mirante transitions to chairman, Mitti Liebersohn will continue as president and managing director of New York, and Jeff Heller, Sean Cahill and Ted Stratigos will continue to lead New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island, respectively. They’ll form a Tri-State Executive Committee along with top producers.
