Andrew Heiberger has been appointed the new CEO of Town Residential, succeeding the departing Joseph Sitt while the firm’s COO and President Jeff Appel was fired.
Sitt will stay on as Town’s co-chairman.
This marks a return to Town by Heiberger who co-founded the firm back in 2010 and previously served as its CEO until January of this year. But at that time Sitt, whose Thor Equities became a major investor in Town back in 2011, decided not to renew Heiberger’s contract. At the time Sitt complained that Heiberger had failed to achieve the financial goals that the two had set for Town.
Now it seems that the two real estate giants have reached a rapprochement. They sent a co-written e mail to Town employees which sang Heiberger’s praises..
There was no reason given for Appel’s dismissal.
