Hilco Redevelopment Partners (HRP), the real estate development unit of Hilco Global that remediates and redevelops complex and obsolete industrial properties, announced today it has appointed Stephanie Eggert to the newly created position of Senior Vice President - Operations. Eggert, who will report directly to CEO Roberto Perez, joins HRP’s growing Philadelphia team, which is focused on transforming the former Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) refinery site into a state-of-the art, multi-modal logistics campus.
The former refinery site is one Eggert knows well, having served as Vice President - Business Planning for PES, Inc. prior to HRP’s acquisition of the South Philadelphia site, where she was responsible for productivity and cost efficiency.
“We continue to build our HRP Philadelphia team, drawing from the local area’s rich talent pool,” said Roberto Perez, CEO - Hilco Redevelopment Partners. “Stephanie’s seven years of experience at the former PES Refinery site provides us with a unique depth of expertise that will help the organization effectively manage business operations, synthesize workflows, and coordinate planning initiatives as we work to create an environmentally friendly employment hub here in Philadelphia.”
Prior to PES, Inc., Eggert held various positions of increasing responsibility with Sunoco Inc. Her appointment comes on the heels of HRP’s hiring of Philadelphia-native Jasmine Sessoms as Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs.
“I am excited to contribute to the site’s future as it is transformed into an economic and employment catalyst that will have a positive impact both locally and regionally,” said Eggert. “The PES site was and will continue to be a strategic location for commerce in the Northeast, and in the coming years will be redeveloped to meet the demands of the new American economy.”
Eggert, who holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University, also serves as the Vice President of the Women’s Leadership Forum of Greater Philadelphia and is the former lead recruiter for the Engineering College Recruiting Program.
