Recine Named Principal of Accordia

Frank D. Recine, former JLL executive managing director, has joined Fairfield-based Accordia as principal.

During his tenure at JLL, Recine played a pivotal role in shaping markets all across the United States. His strong background in transaction structures, lease negotiations and consulting services resulted in the successful negotiations of more than 14 million square feet of space and more than $3 billion in total lease transaction value.

Prior to joining JLL, Recine spent 13 years at Newmark, where he became the youngest principal in the firm. Over the span of his career, Recine handled many high-profile tenant representation assignments for clients such as Ferrari North America, DHL, Gucci, Yang Ming Shipping, The RealReal, Fresenius Medical, WebMD, and more. Recine also specialized in landlord representation, working on agency repositionings and development projects across the state.

Recine emphasizes the key to his success is the long-standing partnerships he has forged throughout his career. “My mantra has always been to surround yourself with great people, who have passion for what they do, and great things will happen,” said Recine. “I have been blessed to have amazing partners throughout my tenure in brokerage.”

Recine was awarded his Juris Doctor degree from the Pace University School of Law and is a member of the bar in both New York and New Jersey.

He also co-founded GTL Construction of NJ in 2012. GTL is a general contractor specializing in interior and ground-up construction, which has completed a variety of high-profile commercial projects throughout the state.

Jason R. Bogart, Founding Principal at Accordia, praised Recine’s appointment, stating, “Frank’s profound industry knowledge, reputation and remarkable ability to forge strong client relationships make him a perfect fit for Accordia as we look to expand our reach throughout the Northeast and the Sun Belt and deepen our market impact,” Bogart said.

His leadership qualities and strategic vision will be invaluable,” he said.

Tim Greiner, executive managing director at JLL, also congratulated Frank on his new role, saying, “Frank and I have shared a remarkable 12-year journey together, and I extend my heartfelt congratulations to him as he embarks on a new chapter with Accordia. Frank’s unwavering dedication and expertise within our brokerage team at JLL was instrumental in our success. As he transitions to Accordia, I have no doubt that he will bring his exceptional skills and industry knowledge to help lead their growth and development.”

Recine, too, sees his role at Accordia as a culmination of his professional journey, saying, “Joining Accordia is a pivotal step in my career—being part of a company with a robust strategic vision and poised for significant growth. I look forward to leveraging my experiences and insights to drive success at Accordia and expand our portfolio across new and thriving markets.”
Bogart added, “As Accordia continues to focus on strategic expansion and rebranding, Frank’s expertise will be crucial in steering our company’s efforts in these areas. His role will involve leading initiatives that align with Accordia’s commitment to innovation, sustainability and superior investment performance.”
