Last week, The Donohoe Companies, Inc. [Donohoe] announced that it was joining forces with Borger Management, Inc. [Borger], adding Borger’s 400 multifamily management employees and portfolio of 9,000 multifamily units across 95 apartment buildings under a new sixth Donohoe division: Borger Residential.

As part of the consolidation, Borger’s commercial real estate team and commercial property management portfolio—which includes approximately 2.6 million SF of managed office and retail space—will integrate with the newly renamed Donohoe Commercial Real Estate (formerly Donohoe Real Estate Services). Donohoe Commercial Real Estate will now provide commercial property management services to over 100 buildings totaling 8.5 million SF.

“By combining the talent and experience of the Borger and Donohoe organizations, we will be uniquely positioned to better serve our existing and future commercial clients,” said Bert Donohoe of Donohoe Commercial Real Estate.

Joe Borger and Claudia Good of Borger Management have been appointed to leadership roles within Donohoe Commercial Real Estate, serving as Senior Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer, respectively. Joe Borger will oversee the existing Borger Commercial Property Management and Project Management portfolios, as well as Project Management Services and Corporate Risk Management for Donohoe Commercial Real Estate as a whole. As CFO, Claudia Good will manage the accounting operations for both Donohoe Commercial Real Estate and Borger Residential. Borger’s chairman, Thomas Borger, will serve on Donohoe’s board of directors.

“These two firms have known each other both professionally and personally for over four generations.  By joining forces, we are able to leverage that knowledge and relationship, which will enhance the quality of service to our existing clients, as well as create new and exciting business opportunities in the future,” said Joe Borger.

Donohoe’s David Happ and Bert Donohoe have received promotions in conjunction with the transition from Donohoe Real Estate Services to Donohoe Commercial Real Estate.
