Greek Development has announced the opening of a new corporate office in East Brunswick to accommodate a business that has doubled in size since late last year.
The 80-year-old real estate firm, which has high-profile industrial projects in markets such as Linden and Logan Township, said it has made 17 new hires in the past six months alone. The expansion has helped bolster every area of its business while helping to scale its operations to keep pace with the booming demand for warehouse and logistics space.
The new hires include:
- Project management: Robert Sprang, Marshall Failing, Rick Jehn, Bill McNelis, Ian Penrose, Jim Turp and Jon Feti
- Accounting: Michel Manaweel, Reese Buchan, Tina Strachan and Krishna Patel
- Development: Habib Popal
- Corporate safety: Stephen Rudd
- Office administration: Lindsay Oliveira and Nicole Kazar
- Property management: Joanne Behr and Ronald Gauthier
“We know that a major factor in successfully broadening Greek Development’s reach and influence is our ability to hire and retain the industry’s best talent,” said David Greek, managing partner of Greek Development. “We take pride in our ability to form positions around the professionals we meet and connect with, rather than trying to fit them into a particular role — and our incredible success during the first half of 2022 is a testament to this approach. All of our new hires will play integral roles in ensuring Greek continues to grow and expand our first-class development, construction and management offerings.”
The employees have joined Greek’s team in a new 14,095-square-foot headquarters at 1 Kimberly Road, nearly double the size of its previous space, from which it manages a warehouse portfolio across New Jersey, parts of Pennsylvania and Orange County, New York. The new headquarters has a kitchen and lounge area that fits more than 80 people comfortably, the firm, as well as four conference rooms.
Greek is currently building the 4 million-square-foot Linden Logistics Center in Linden and the 3.2 million-square-foot Logan North Industrial Park — the home of Target’s largest distribution operation on the East Coast — both in partnership with Advance Realty Investors. The firm is also eyeing further expansion of both its market share and its headcount in the months ahead, while it plans to continue to design, develop, construct and manage industrial buildings for a range of third-party clients.
