As CEO and president of The Fallon Company, Joseph F. Fallon oversees the development and investment operations of the company’s real estate portfolio, which includes some of the most sought after residential, hotel and commercial properties in Boston.

His ability to work with Boston’s agencies and community groups has been lauded by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, which honored him with the prestigious “Developer of the Year” award.  Joseph has served on numerous non-profit boards and currently serves on the boards of The Boston Symphony Orchestra, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, and WGBH.
