REBNY appointed five new executive committee members.

Park Tower Group’s George Klein and Jonathan Resnick of Jack Resnick and Sons are among the new members the Real Estate Board of New York appointed to its powerful executive committee.

“These leaders – who devote their time, energy, and expertise to our organization and New York – are doing a service for all of us who work in New York City real estate,” REBNY Chairman Bill Rudin said in prepared remarks. “Their professional achievements and dedication to the City’s civic and philanthropic life have greatly benefitted our community.”

John Fish of Suffolk Construction, David Picket of the Gotham Organization and Steven Rubenstein of the PR firm Rubenstein will join the new class of executive committee members.

REBNY’s executive committee is made up primarily of representatives from the city’s largest property owners – with some members representing the brokerage community and other various industry players. It’s responsible for making some of the key decisions that chart the course for the industry group.

The executive committee, for instance, voted late last year to raise dues on commercial brokers and property owners by 20 percent.
