Jessica Verdi
ASSOCIATE

The industry breadth of Jessica Verdi’s tenant-representation work is impressive: financial services, advertising, technology, nonprofit and law. In all instances, she plays a pivotal role in business development and canvassing for her team at the commercial real estate services company Colliers. The beyond-her-years success—for notable clients that include Bacardi, The Economist and Griffon Corporation—was recognized in 2019 with Connect Media’s Next Generation Award. Verdi isn’t the sort to put her feet up when the workday is done: she participates in the mentoring program Read Ahead and serves on the board of the New York Junior Tennis League. Verdi was appointed to serve on Community Board Five in Midtown.
