O’Connor Promoted to Senior Vice President of Development

WOBURN, MASSACHUSETTS, May 9, 2024 – The Dolben Company announces the promotion of long-time employee John O’Connor from Vice President of Development to Senior Vice President of Development.

“John is a key member of Dolben and has been instrumental in the successful completion of our development projects over the past 25 years. As we continue to evolve Dolben’s development capabilities from garden and mid-rise to high-rise multifamily projects, John has been there contributing to our growth every step along the way.” says Drew K. Dolben, Executive Vice President of The Dolben Company.

In his role, John is responsible for the oversight and management of the development team and all multifamily development projects in the New England, Mid-Atlantic and Southwest Florida regions. The promotion recognizes his continued leadership in the department as it has grown.

John has supervised the development of over 6,700 apartment homes including Breakwater North Harbor in Lynn, MA; Trader’s Row in Salem, MA; Corsa and Caro in Salem, NH; Edgemere Crossing in Shrewsbury, MA; Gradient in Weymouth, MA; Halyard in Gloucester, MA; The Q in Quincy, MA; Residences at Great Pond in Randolph, MA; Aster at the Summit in Wakefield, MA; Aura Largo Station in Largo, MD; and Ascent at Metropolitan Naples in Naples, FL.

John Joined Dolben in 1999 as a Regional Property Manager. He quickly realized his true interest was in the development side of the business and transferred in September 2000. Due to a slowdown in the economy in 2009, John transferred back to Property Management as a Regional Property Manager. As the economy slowly improved, John found himself doing double duty – managing his portfolio of properties and working closely with Drew Dolben to jumpstart development projects in New England. John transferred back to Development full-time in December 2013.
