An Texas-based industrial logistics developer, Hillwood, is expanding in New Jersey and the mid-Atlantic market with a new regional team based in Jersey City led by an industry veteran, Art Makris.
Makris has more than 24 years of experience developing industrial logistics and has been recognized as a leader in recruiting, developing and retaining successful teams in the industry.
In addition, Ben Rosen was announced as senior vice president, sourcing and executing industrial real estate investment and leasing transactions in New Jersey and New York City, including land for ground-up development and existing building acquisitions.
Transaction specialist Seth Hall, veteran construction management professional Brian Nussbaum and Development Coordinator Susan Richman will round out the team in two new offices in Jersey City and Philadelphia.
Makris is succeeding industry veteran Gary Frederick as the Northeast market leader. Frederick, founding leader of Hillwood in the Northeast, is committed to remaining part of the Northeast team through a transitional period to assist Makris and complete several transactions in progress.
Hillwood President Tal Hicks said, “Art is the ideal person for this position, as he is known for achieving outstanding results through data-driven strategies and a collaborative approach. We are excited to expand our already successful Northeast team.”
