Conor Commercial Real Estate added two new employees to its Corporate Headquarters Office in Rosemont, Illinois. Mike Fausone joins the firm as a Development Manager, and James Rose joins as a Senior Development Analyst.

“Both Mike and James have shown a strong business acumen and understanding of the commercial real estate market,” shared Brian Quigley, Executive Vice President at Conor. “We’re very excited to have them join our team and look forward to growing our development portfolio through their experience and expertise.”

As Development Manager, Fausone is responsible for overseeing all development projects in the greater Chicago area and the southeastern United States. He comes to Conor with more than eight years of experience in commercial real estate and construction. Fausone graduated from Duke University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and earned his MBA from the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business.
Before joining Conor, Fausone worked as a Development & Acquisition Associate at Related Midwest. He performed underwriting, negotiation, design and construction management, and asset management for various projects in the mixed-use, multi-family, and affordable housing sectors.

As Senior Development Analyst, Rose is responsible for project underwriting and development committee memos for Conor’s Chicago-area projects. He also provides financial analysis, preparation of deal proformas, development project reporting, real estate tax analysis, and budgeting. He brings 16 years of commercial real estate experience to Conor, as well as a Bachelor of Architecture from Florida A&M University and a Master of Real Estate, Finance, and Investment from New York University.

Rose has worked in various capacities within the Jacksonville, Florida, New York City, and Chicago commercial real estate markets. He recently served as a Senior Financial Analyst for JAX Financial Servicing, where he evaluated and identified growth markets, provided underwriting, and reviewed real estate tax liens for acquisition.

Mike and James position Conor to continue growing its Midwest portfolio and will play critical roles in expanding its Southeast Region presence.
