About the Frank Visceglia Family

The Frank Visceglia Family has been a transformational force in New Jersey for decades. Federal Business Centers, a third-generation family business, was started by Frank Visceglia in 1938. The company’s Raritan Center is home to hundreds of companies — Fortune 500 companies, Global 500 companies, and market leaders from every business sector.  As a master-planned, mixed-use business park, Raritan Center encompasses over 2,350 acres of land and almost 15 million square feet of business space, including office space, flex space, and warehouse/distribution space. Business amenities include restaurants, hotels, and banks, along with regional shipping centers for FedEx Express, United Parcel Service, and FedEx Ground.

The Frank Visceglia Family is also NAIOP New Jersey’s “Founding Family”. In 1970, NAIOP New Jersey was born when Frank Visceglia, Sr. invited David Steiner to lunch to discuss the regulatory environment in NJ and how they could combat its negative impact on development. Although the industry was represented on the national level by the recently formed NAIOP, Visceglia felt there was a need to provide input at the state level. Visceglia and Steiner invited colleagues to join them for a series of informal breakfast meetings, and the group became the first NAIOP Chapter, uniting all facets of the non-residential development sector to advocate for pro-growth public policies.

Mr. Visceglia began a long tradition of his family members playing key roles in the growth and advancement of NAIOP. Frank D. Visceglia served as the Chair of National NAIOP in 1990, the association’s Golf Classic awards the Visceglia Cup in his name annually, and scholarships in his name are presented to an Eagle Scout and a Gold Award Scout at the President’s Awards Dinner each November. The contemporary Visceglias, Peter, Frank Jr. and Nicole, have continued to serve and support NAIOP with leadership roles ranging from the Board of Trustees to the Developers Political Action Committee.
