This year, Conifer has substantially invested in the growth of its Downstate NY and Long Island development team. In March, Conifer welcomed Roger Pine on board as the Vice President of Development for the region, and just last month, Daniel Brass came on board as Senior Project Coordinator. These new hires are a key component of Conifer’s growth plans for its development teams.

With over 14 years’ experience in the development of new construction in New York City and Westchester, Mr. Pine brings his knowledge of building mid and high rise, mixed-use projects on urban in-fill sites, and the ability to navigate the local approvals process. His experience working with municipalities, housing agencies, local elected officials, and non-profits is instrumental in executing complex affordable housing developments.
