Real estate development firm Smith Land & Improvement Corp.’s newest executive is bringing 16 years of experience in commercial banking and real estate finance to the Camp Hill-based company.
Dallas Zulli, former vice president and senior commercial relationship manager for F&M Trust, has taken the role of both COO and CFO for Smith Land, the firm announced Friday.
“His experience on the banking side of commercial real estate finance gives him unique insights into the types and structures of deals that will future-proof our development firm,” said Richard Jordan III, president and CEO of Smith Land.
Smith Land has a portfolio of about 50 properties, 80% of which are located in the midstate.
The firm’s most recent redevelopment project, the Camp Hill-based Neighbors & Smith, houses a number of local businesses including Little Black Dress, One Good Woman and Underneath it All and officially opened in June of last year.
“I was raised in this area and have seen the positive impact, resilience, and expansion of the Smith Land properties, including the landmark West Shore Plaza. It’s important to have historical context for development which will help me as I manage our current projects, evaluate future projects, introduce new tenant relationships, and prepare our properties for changing demands in the commercial real estate market,” Zulli said.
Zulli holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master’s in Business Administration from Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. He is also the treasurer and board member for the East Pennsboro Ambulance Service and a trustee for the Cumberland County Bar Foundation.
