DEPM Building Staff Honored for Outstanding Work

For their exemplary work and long-term service, John Battle was named Doorman of the Year by Union 32BJ, and Robert Andrzejewski was named Resident Manager of the Year by the New York Association of Realty Managers (NYARM). John received his award at the Annual Building Service Workers Awards ceremony this Fall, and Robert will be honored in April at NYARM’s annual awards gala.
John was chosen due to the long-lasting friendships, honesty, and hard-working nature he has brought to the job for the past 24 years as doorman for the DEPM-managed Eastwood Towers at 355 East 72nd Street. “We are so proud that John has been named Doorman of the Year for 2014,” says John Janangelo, Executive Vice President of DEPM. “Congratulations to him for this outstanding honor.”
Yolanda Queen, Property Manager for the building, added, “Part of our job as managers is to ensure that every building has a great staff. The doormen are the most public presence in any building, and their attitude and attention make a real difference to every resident and their visitors. We greatly appreciate John’s positive outlook and genuine concern for the residents of Eastwood Towers.”
Robert Andrzejewski is Resident Manager at the DEPM-managed Charleston Condominium at 225 East 34th Street. Many of his colleagues will be there on April 24th to cheer him on as he accepts his award.
“Rob knows his job and does it well 150% of the time,” says DEPM Property Manager Sharon Langlais. “I trust him, the Board trusts him, and most importantly, the residents of The Charleston trust and respect him. He’s the Resident Manager that will stay up all night to make sure a problem in the building is resolved. He is dedicated and very loyal. The building is well maintained, the staff is top notch and that’s because of Rob. If anyone deserves this award, it’s him. He makes my job easier, and as a Property Manager in NYC you can’t ask for more.”
“Robert is a very special person,” says Margie Russell, Executive Director of NYARM. “He is ready to accept new ideas and move ahead, always with a smile. He is a shining example of the kind of person Jim is very good at attracting and keeping on the DEPM team,” she adds, referring to Jim O’Connor, President of Douglas Elliman Property Management.
