A former employee of MIG Realty Advisors Inc. has sued the real estate manager claiming he is owed more than $700,000 in commissions for marketing services. Enrico Campitelli alleges MIG fired him in August 1989 without cause and without paying him commissions he earned for getting the $2.1 billion Philadelphia Municipal Pension Fund to invest with the real estate manager.
MIG President Larry Wright said through a spokeswoman that Mr. Campitelli's complaint is a nuisance suit.
Mr. Campitelli alleges MIG twice breached contracts with him: On Sept. 22, 1986, he was denied full-time employment at an annual salary of $50,000, after obtaining the Philadelphia account; and on Oct. 12, 1987, the company failed to pay him a commission of 10% of gross fees generated by accounts he originated. According to a copy of a contract submitted as an exhibit, it appears MIG hired him full time effective July 1, 1987.
The case will go to trial May 20 in Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.
