Christopher Ressa | Executive Vice President COO | DLC Management | The Future of Retail Shopping
Solve challenges people think are unsolvable and do what is considered undoable.
WHO I AM:
My birth mother left when I was 2.
For the first 8 years of my life it was my Dad and I in a tiny apt. At that age, make no bones about it, we were poor.
Through that experience I developed a resilience that is unshakeable, a high stress tolerance, and the ability to thrive under immense pressure. All of that shaped who I am today and drives me on a constant pursuit of achievement and providing more for my family. I am inspired by my wife who is the kindest most and genuine person I know.
I am fascinated by those who defeat the odds, and do the ordinary, extraordinarily well.
WHAT I DO:
Commercial Real Estate executive and Chief Operating Officer at DLC Management. Lead a team of 65 #CRE top pros.
Lead the value creation teams; leasing, construction, property management, and marketing.
Committed to solving real estate needs for local entrepreneurs, regional operators, and fortune 500 tenants.
➜ Resolute about removing obstacles
➜ Inspired to be a part of the development of people
➜ Fanatical about crushing personal and company goals
HERE ON LINKEDIN:
I spend time on Linkedin because I am always looking to elevate myself and I am on a constant pursuit of learning. My content is focused on my passions: real estate, retail, sales, and leadership.
WHAT WAKES ME UP EACH MORNING?
Outside of the inspiration I gain from my wife and family, what fires me up? The opportunity to work in an industry that is constantly changing, battling disruption, and flat out not easy. I get jacked up knowing I can make an impact with these circumstances.
OUTSIDE OF WORK:
I am a health and fitness enthusiast. Grew up playing football and wrestling. Wrestled in college at a Division 1 program, Rutgers University.
