About The Fallon Company | History | Founder

Joseph F. Fallon

Joe Fallon established The Fallon Company in 1993 and currently oversees the development and investment operations of the company's real estate portfolio as its CEO and President. Committed to creating dynamic and distinctive places to work and live throughout the United States, Joe's visionary approach integrates properties with the life of the neighborhoods and cities of which they are a part.

Real estate has been a part of Joe's life from an early age. He learned about construction from his father, and was fortunate to learn real estate from his neighbor, Thomas J. Flatley, founder of The Flatley Company. Joe often accompanied Mr. Flatley as he checked on projects in progress for one of Boston's oldest and most respected real estate development companies.

Joe brings a wealth of real estate development experience and a history of creative and productive collaborations with corporate and civic partners to each project. The city of Boston and its residents can attest to Joe Fallon's superb ability to transform real estate opportunities into places of enduring quality and value.

In 2012, he was selected by the Real Estate Finance Association (REFA) to receive its annual Robert S. Swain Jr, Distinguished Service Award and was also honored in Irish America magazine's 2011 Top 100. In 2005, he was one of eight 'Bostonians of the Year' by The Boston Globe and in the Boston Business Journal's 'People to Watch’. Most recently he was awarded the first Visionary Award from the Boston Business Journal.

In honor of his ability to work with the City of Boston agencies and community groups, Joe was awarded 'Developer of the Year' by the Boston Redevelopment Authority as the new breed of developer for his ability to work with the community as well as the City.

In addition to leading the development of some of the most sought after residential, hotel, and commercial properties in Boston, Joe serves on numerous nonprofit boards, including The Boston Symphony Orchestra, WGBH, the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital and he is a member of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties. Some pervious boards he has served on are The Boston Harbor Island Alliance, The New England Aquarium, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and A Better City.
