April 18, 2011 12:26PM

Jay Olshonsky, most recently the COO of Westchester-based NAI Friedland Realty and a veteran of CB Richard Ellis among other Washington D.C. and New York-based firms, was named executive vice president and COO of NAI Global New York City. NAI Global New York City and NAI Friedland are both local arms of NAI Global, which has 350 offices in 55 countries. The Manhattan office, located at 415 Madison Avenue, recently doubled its office space to 15,000 square feet, and said it is expanding aggressively and is in the process of hiring more agents. “[Olshonksy’s] knowledge and experience will be valuable in growing our New York City team,” said NAI Global President and CEO Jeffrey Finn. NAI Global New York City currently has 19 agents and a few property listings, including 597 Fifth Avenue near Rockefeller Center, but focuses primarily on retail and commercial tenant representation. With the increased Manhattan capacity, the global firm plans to headquarter its business development operation in the Madison Avenue office, according to company spokesperson Efram Ingberman. TRD
