GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — The Engel Burman Group, a Garden City-based owner-operator of a diverse portfolio of real estate assets including seniors housing, has hired Andreas Boyiakis to the company’s construction division as insurance coordinator.
Boyiakis’ responsibilities include binding insurance for projects and subcontractor compliance, among many other things.
“We have nine projects currently under construction, with six on the drawing board,” says Scott Burman, partner and president of Engel Burman Construction. “As our project portfolio expands, so does the need for more compliance, oversight and insurance coverage.”
Boyiakis previously served as operations manager of Brooklyn -based Magnetic Construction Group and its subsidiary, Magnetic Builders Group LLC, overseeing a wide variety of real estate assets, many of which were hospitality properties, valued at an aggregate of approximately $650 million. He was largely responsible for managing company insurance policies, subcontractor compliance and legal matters pertaining to claims. In addition, he handled all HR matters including hiring, payroll, 401K administration and health insurance benefits.
Earlier in his career, Boyiakis served in a managerial capacity for Long Island City-based M.A. Angeliades Inc., handling all insurance claims, and for PAX Associates, where he developed a centralized accounts receivable department for all corporate house accounts for all 20 store locations.
Boyiakis earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from New York Institute of Technology.
