Yael Urman

Silverstein Properties just named Yael Urman, a former executive in the oil and pharmaceutical industries, as its new chief information officer.

Urman most recently served as director of applications at PBF Energy, a New Jersey-based petroleum-refinery company. Before that, she was head of information technology at Ness Technology North America and director of IT at Teva Pharmaceuticals’ global operations. She earned her master of business administration from Tel-Aviv University and a bachelor of science in industrial engineering and management from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology.

In her new role, she’ll oversee technology initiatives related to Silverstein’s “financial, operations and development activities,” the company said in a statement.

Urman replaces Sandy Jacolow, who served in the position for seven years. He now works as Meridian Capital Group‘s chief information officer. Last year, Janno Lieber left Silverstein for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. He led the company’s redevelopment of the World Trade Center.
