N.J. Builders Association installs president, ’21-22 officers

The New Jersey Builders Association has installed its 68th president, it announced this week, along with other members of its 2021-22 slate of officers.

The Robbinsville-based trade association said Josh M. Mann, co-founder and co-managing partner of Iron Ore Properties, will take on the role after holding a variety of leadership positions with the NJBA and Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of New Jersey.

Mann has been an attorney and developer during his career, including serving as a partner and general counsel at Seaview Capital Partners LLC and working at two prominent New Jersey law firms.

The other officers installed at the board meeting included:

  • Vice president: Thomas P. Bovino, Jackson Development Corp.;
