As expected, Chairman Larry Silverstein named Martin Burger as CEO of Silverstein Properties Inc. Burger joined the company in 2010 as executive vice president and co-CEO. He will lead daily operations for the World Trade Center developer, which also has numerous other projects in New York, China, Eastern Europe and Israel.

Burger brought on Robert Vecsler as executive vice president.

In addition, the company tapped Tal Kerret as chief investment officer, Bill Dacunto as executive vice president and Dara McQuillan as chief marketing & communications officer.

Thomas Scarangello was elected chairman of New York Building Congress, succeeding John Dionisio. Scarangello is chairman and CEO of Thornton Tomasetti, an engineering firm behind projects ranging from the new Yankee Stadium to Hudson Yards.

James Famularo joined Eastern Consolidated as a senior director after 11 years with New York Commercial Realty Services. Eastern Consolidated also signed Abram G. Bernstein as an associate director, specializing in commercial properties.

Fox Residential Group celebrated its 25th anniversary in January. The boutique brokerage, which specializes in upscale residential properties in Manhattan and Brooklyn, now has over 50 brokers, up from four in 1989. It also recently added a development division.

“Considering the volatility of the Manhattan residential real estate market and the large size of our major competitors, it hasn’t been easy for a small firm like ours to stay afloat, let alone prosper,” Founder and President Barbara Fox said in a statement. The company marked the occasion at Orsay on Lexington Avenue.
