NEW YORK CITY—Leasing and asset management platform VTS, which merged with Hightower this past November to create a portfolio of some five billion square feet, has brought in two new executives to help manage its rapid growth. Michelle McComb has joined as CFO, while Tim Harvey has come aboard as executive chairman.

“After merging with Hightower, our combined team has the technology and industry expertise we need to drive lasting industry transformation,” says VTS CEO Nick Romito. “Our goal is to create the best-in-industry platform and tackle even bigger customer pain points down the road. To support these ambitions, we’re introducing two new executive team members who are experts at growing and managing large teams through a steep growth trajectory. Michelle and Tim are perfectly poised to help VTS scale operational processes and infrastructure, attract talented new team members, continue global expansion and mentor the leadership team along the way.”
