{Executive Appointments} ERA Real Estate has announced Dave Collins as chief operat- ing officer (COO). Alongside CEO/ President Simon Chen, Collins, who was se- nior vice president of Broker Services, will be responsible for as- sessing the brand's growth and reinforcing its resources and tools. Since joining ERA, Collins has helped the brand reimagine how a broker services team can cater to all levels of real estate professionals by focusing on individual success. He oversaw the implementation of the "Four Disciplines of Execution," a tool used to measure engagement and significantly increase production and broker retention rates. His back- ground also emphasizes online lead generation, metrics measurement and analysis, relocation and com- merce experience. Halstead has appointed Leslie Bo- gen Winkler president of Halstead Management Company. Bogen Win- kler, formerly EVP, has more than 40 years of experience. Halstead Management Company currently manages ap- proximately 20,000 units within 200 buildings throughout New York City. Previously, Bogen Winkler served as head of Penmark Realty Management, which merged into Halstead Management eight years ago, and as president of Bellmarc Management Company. National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Chief Lobbyist and Senior Vice President Jerry Giovaniello is re- tiring at the end of the year. Giovaniello, who has been with NAR for 37 years, will continue on until the association names a replacement, and will assist with the transition. Giovan- iello joined NAR in 1981 from Capitol Hill, where he was chief of staff for two members of Congress from Cali- fornia. He was named NAR's chief lobbyist in 2001, and is a fixture in the halls of Congress. Giovaniello has developed longstanding rela- tionships with legislators on both sides of the aisle, and a reputation for ensuring REALTORS®' voices are heard on important policy issues. Under Giovaniello's direction, NAR achieved numerous legislative and regulatory accomplishments. He led fights to oppose a flat tax proposal in the late '90s, to permanently pro- hibit banks from entering real estate brokerage, and to persuade Con- gress to pass mortgage debt relief and a first-time homebuyer tax credit during very challenging times for the housing market and economy after the financial collapse. His leader- ship helped secure the continuation of the National Flood Insurance Pro- gram (NFIP), and, most recently, he successfully led efforts to persuade policymakers against slashing home- owner tax benefits. Howard Hanna Real Estate Services has announced changes to its lead- ership in New York, with Karen Leonardi named senior vice president of the Western District and Albert Picchi named senior vice president of the Eastern District. Howard Hanna acquired Nothnagle REALTORS® and RealtyUSA, two leaders in the New York region, in 2017. Leonardi began at Howard Hanna in 2008 as vice president of Corporate and Con- sumer Affairs, and was instrumental in the rebrand of Nothnagle REAL- TORS® and RealtyUSA. Prior, she was CEO of the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS® (GRAR). Picchi began in 2001 as vice presi- dent and regional manager of Realty- USA, which he continued on as after the Howard Hanna transaction.
