Ritz-Carlton veteran Cristiano Buono was named general manager of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach, a luxury condo project that’s slated to open soon in Mid-Miami Beach. Lionheart Capital is the developer.

Buono’s residential and hotel management experience includes positions at The Ritz-Carlton Club, Aspen Highlands, The Ritz-Carlton Abama, Golf & Spa Resort in Tenerife, Canary Islands, and Marriott International’s EDITION Hotels.

The Miami Beach development will have 111 condo residences and 15 single-family villas, gardens, pools and 36 private boat slips. Shared amenities will include an art studio, a rooftop pool deck with private cabanas and a restaurant, a waterfront bar and social room, pet grooming facilities, indoor and outdoor yoga studios, a meditation garden and car wash facilities. Buono will focus on implementing and managing the amenities and owner engagement, according to a press release.

Last year, Lionheart hired Gigi Ganatra Duff, a marketing, brand development and communications executive, as chief marketing officer. She left Lionheart in February and later joined Nordstrom Inc. as vice president of public relations and corporate affairs.

Douglas Elliman’s Zaicha Martell-Spodak and Gayle Clark will lead sales at DDG’s 3550 South Ocean in Palm Beach. Martell-Spodak previously led closings of 775 units at the Plaza on Brickell. Both Martell-Spodak and Clark also previously worked for the Related Group and Cervera Real Estate. 3550 South Ocean, a 30-unit luxury condo project, is under construction and expected to open in early 2019.

Skanska USA brought on Michael C. Brown as executive vice president/general manager in Florida. Brown, based in Tampa, will lead the company’s three Florida offices. He was previously senior vice president and southeast regional manager at Gilbane Building Company in Atlanta.

Douglas Elliman recruited Valerie Coz from the Palm Beach-based Fire Group. Coz is now a senior director of luxury sales, based out of Elliman’s Delray Beach office. She was previously co-founder and president of SafferCoz Real Estate in Delray. Coz focuses on luxury homes in Ocean Ridge, Delray Beach, Gulfstream, Manalapan and Hypoluxo Island.

Coldwell Banker hired agents Steven Yaro in Las Olas, Sarah Solis in Delray Beach, Alejandro Jimenez, Mariya Ilazarova, Amir Ali Shahheidari and Allyson Mahler at its Boca Central office, and N. Virginia Silverio in Pinecrest.
