The Garibaldi Group has promoted three sales associates who the firm says have been the driving force behind the office leasing team at the Bell Works redevelopment project in Holmdel.
In a news release, Garibaldi and CORFAC International announced Tara Keating, Scott Garibaldi and Kyle Mahoney have been named vice presidents with the Chatham-based firm. Alongside President Jeff Garibaldi, the team has leased more than 700,000 square feet of office space in the building to technology firms such as iCIMS, NVIDIA, Symbolic IO and Workwave.
The leases have brought the building occupancy to 65 percent within less than two years of it being on the market.
Keating joined TGG in 2003 as the firm’s director of marketing and has been involved on the sales side of the business for the last five years, the news release said. Prior to her work at Bell Works, she was on the leasing team for Eisenhower Corporate Campus in Livingston, while handling market research for tenant representation assignments.
Mahoney, who is in his fifth year with Garibaldi, started his tenure with tenant representation projects in New Jersey, Manhattan and the greater Tri-State area. He has worked with with firms such as Investors Bank and Hatteras Press.
Scott Garibaldi joined the firm in 2011 and has spent the majority of his tenure managing corporate service accounts for clients such as Realogy Holding Corp., NPS Pharmaceuticals and Griffon Corporations. Working with the team of Jeff Garibaldi, Jerry Moore and Chuck Bower, Garibaldi has helped manage a corporate portfolio of more than 32 million square feet across the country.
In the process, he has taken a leading role in lease transactions, property dispositions and handled market research for projects stretching from Fort Walton Beach, Florida to Reno, Nevada, the news release said. Last year alone, Scott Garibaldi was involved in more than 1.2 million square feet of office and industrial leasing and over 200,000 square feet sold.
The Garibaldi Group on Wednesday also announced the hiring of Nick Stefans, who joins the firm after four years as a commodities broker at the GFI Group, focusing on crude oil derivatives. He joined as a licensed real estate salesperson in 2015 and has since been heavily involved in spearheading new business development campaigns, as well as assisting on some of the firm’s most prominent landlord representation assignments.
