Mack-Cali Names Mahbod Nia as New CEO

Mack-Cali Realty Corporation has named Mahbod Nia CEO, effective March 8. Nia, who has served as a director of the Jersey City-based REIT since June 2020, will succeed interim CEO MaryAnne Gilmartin, who will serve as special advisor to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.
With the selection of a permanent CEO, Gilmartin has stepped down as board chair, and will return to her full-time role as CEO of MAG Partners. The Board appointed lead independent director Tammy K. Jones as chair.

Nia’s appointment follows a comprehensive search for a permanent CEO. He brings to Mack-Cali more than 20 years‘ real estate industry experience, most recently having served as CEO of NorthStar Realty Europe Corp.

“The powerful combination of Mahbod’s experience as a successful CEO of a public REIT and deep familiarity with Mack-Cali having served on the Board, will enable him to hit the ground running,” said Jones.
