Jeffrey A. Tosello
As Managing Partner and Founder of PSG, Mr. Tosello focuses on building a world-class team that strives to establish best practices in the evolving field of Lease Administration and Accounting.
Mr. Tosello began his real estate career in 1989 as an accountant for a small Chicago-based property management firm.  For 10 years, Mr. Tosello combined property management with lease administration; he managed several mixed-use office buildings, held the position of assistant manager of One IBM Plaza, and secured national relationships with IBM, Sprint, Sears, Advocate Healthcare, Prudential, and Exxon, which he turned into a multi-million-dollar service enterprise.
As Mr. Tosello worked his way through various real estate service positions, he recognized there was an increasing demand for administrative and technological strategy in the real estate industry, leading him to launch Portfolio Solutions Group.  He formed a unique corporate structure, aligning motivation with service excellence and greater transparency.  These qualities continue to shape how Mr. Tosello cultivates and refines PSG’s work process and data management strategies.
Mr. Tosello holds a Masters of Business Administration from Loyola University with a concentration in Information Systems.  He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Economics from Elmhurst College. Mr. Tosello also has a RPA designation from the Building Owners and Managers Institute, and he holds a real estate broker’s license in the State of Illinois.  In addition, he sits on the Board of Trustees for the James Jordan Boys and Girls Clubs, and is a member of the Economic Club of Chicago.
