ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. (Feb. 21, 2023) – Lee & Associates New Jersey has two new assistant vice presidents, having promoted industrial brokerage specialists Joseph Komitor and William Ziegler. The appointments support the commercial real estate firm’s strategic growth initiatives in the Garden State. 

Komitor and Ziegler joined the Elmwood Park-based company as associates in the Industrial Brokerage Division. Komitor has been with the firm since 2021, and Ziegler was hired shortly after serving as an intern in 2019.  

“Rewarding outstanding performance is critical to our success as an organization that prioritizes growth from within,” said Lee & Associates’ Jason Lynch, principal. “Joe and Will exemplify the caliber of professionals who are helping us take our industrial brokerage platform – and the company – to a new level.”  


Komitor, who assists with private and institutional agency leasing, site selection, tenant representation, and property acquisition and disposition in New Jersey and throughout the Northeast, has been involved in over 1 million square feet of transactions during his tenure with the firm. He holds a bachelor’s degree in communication from Kean University and is currently pursuing a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation. In addition, he is a member of NAIOP NJ and IOREBA, a volunteer with the American Diabetes Association, and has been active in local fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since 2008. 

“I enjoy being part of an organization that provides the resources and mentoring to support professional development and encourages entrepreneurship,” said Komitor. “As a broker, I am not defined by one asset class or geographic location. Our entire team works collaboratively to put together deals whenever and wherever they can be made.”  


Ziegler specializes in landlord and tenant representation in the Northern New Jersey market. His expertise includes helping tenants identify markets and properties that fit their needs and ensuring that lease negotiations proceed as seamlessly as possible. His work with landlords includes marketing properties and partnering with other brokers to secure suitable tenants. Ziegler earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Ramapo College of New Jersey’s Anisfield School of Business, and is a member of IOREBA. 

“From the company founders to the newest employees, everyone here fosters a sense of community around the common goal of growing the business,” said Ziegler. “Senior leadership has supported and guided me since I started here, and this promotion is reflective of the hard work and collective accomplishments of my entire team.”
