Art DellaSalla joined Meritage as a Managing Director in November, 2004, following 9 years at Grubb & Ellis, where he, among other things, managed the Tri-State Research and Client Services Group and subsequently joined the New York Investment Sales Team. Art’s extensive network of close broker relationships, together with his fundamental grounding in market research, operations management and analytical underwriting, added considerable depth to the organization’s core strengths. While managing the Research and Client Services team, Art also received his MBA in Finance at Seton Hall University in 1999. He then joined the Investment Services Group where his focus shifted to consulting clients in their acquisition and disposition strategies and financial restructuring of mostly office properties and development sites in the Northeast.
In his current role at Meritage, Art heads Meritage’s acquisition and disposition activities with a primary focus on leveraging the firm’s relationships to generate off-market and selectively marketed transactions. In addition, he oversees a select number of our portfolio investments.
