Chairman and Chief Operating Officer
Miles Berger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for spearheading The Berger Organization's overall residential, hospitality and commercial operations encompassing more than 1 million square feet of space. Credited as a visionary and catalyst for Newark's renaissance, he acquired the company's first property, the Newark Holiday Inn, on March 3, 1976, from New England Mutual Insurance Co. The dated building has recently been demolished and the three-acre property is slated for development as a mixed-use transportation hub complex.
Over the years, Miles has acquired more than a dozen hotel and commercial properties throughout Newark, where he has spearheaded several prominent commercial real estate development projects, and other burgeoning Northern New Jersey cities, including Jersey City and East Orange. His deep appreciation for Ne's rich history and personal, unwavering commitment to restoring New Jersey's largest city to its past brilliance serves as the foundation for the company's concentrated real estate acquisitions throughout the city and the employment of more than 220 local residents.
Miles' interest in the future of Newark extends beyond the firm's real estate holdings to his involvement with numerous organizations. He has been recognized for his professional and personal efforts with Newark's Businessperson of the Year Award as well as community service honors from the Newark Police Department, Coalition of 100 Black Women, Hispanic Law Enforcement of Essex County and Newark Emergency Services for Families.
