APITOL HEIGHTS, MD — Newmark announced the $20.4 million sale of 8700 Ritchie Dr., a 103,193 s/f last-mile distribution facility inside Washington DC’s Capital Belt- way in Capitol Heights. The industrial asset traded from a joint venture comprising The Pinkard Group , a real estate investment and development company, and Principal As- set Management –a leading global financial company –to LBA Realty , a full-service real estate investment and management company. Newmark executive manag- ing director Cris Abramson and managing directors Ben McCarty and Nicholas Si- gnor represented the seller in the sale transaction. “Despite economic head- WILMINGTON, DE — Agi- lent Technologies Inc., a global leader in analytical instrumen- tation development and manu- facturing and one of Delaware’s largest private-sector employ- ers, has chosen to modernize and expand its Newport, DE, manufacturing facility to meet growing global demand for its biopharma consumables. Agilent plans to invest nearly $22 million to increase the capacity of its lab-based manu- facturing site in Newport, leasing 12,000 s/f adjacent to its existing facility and fitting out 9,900 s/f as lab space with new infrastructure, equipment and instrumentation. Over half of the remaining square foot- age will become a warehouse, storage and shipping/receiving area, and the balance will be used for offices. This latest expansion follows another investment by Agilent last year to its Wilmington-area Little Falls R&D labs. Agilent employs 18,000 people world- wide, including more than 950 in Delaware. The Newport site employs 110 workers, and the expansion is expected to create

Recently, DPP supported Agilent’s request to the Council on Develop- ment Finance for a Dela- ware Graduated Lab Space Grant of up to $693,000 from the Delaware Strategic Fund. Distribution of grants from the Delaware Strategic Fund are dependent on the company meeting commit- ments as outlined to the CDF, which reviewed and approved Agilent’s request. “Agilent has been operat- ing in Delaware for more than 20 years, and we are pleased to continue investing in our manufacturing and R&D facilities in the First State,” said Henrik Ancher- Jensen, Agilent’s order ful- fillment and supply chain president. “We are honored to be part of this dynamic community that supports innovation and growth and attracts top talent.” MAREJ

The Newport facility, one of several Agilent manufacturing sites across the United States, produces liquid chromatogra- phy columns used for chemical and biochemical analysis, drug discovery, environmental con- trol and analytical chemistry. Growing worldwide demand for these analytical consum- ables led the company to re- view its U.S. facilities to de- termine the best opportunity to grow production capacity.

Agilent’s decision to invest in its Newport site in New Castle County reflects confidence in Delaware’s dynamic business environment and the large pool of regional talent. “Agilent’s latest expansion is proof that New Castle County is a great place to create and grow your business,” said New Castle County executive Matt Meyer . “It’s become well known that we have the resources and the talent to continue to be

KLNB principal Ken Fellows represented the landlord, Bernstein Manage- ment Corporation in the transaction.

Our team knows which types of tenants will thrive and be able to take full advantage of the amenities and aspects the submarket, and how to pro- mote a property in a way that will attract ideal businesses.” The commercial industrial real estate sector across the DMV continues to be very ro- bust, with limited vacancy and few landlords willing to sell their properties.

think it’s important to let people know you’re thankful for the work they are doing. What challenges and or obstacles do you feel you needed to overcome to be- come as successful as you are today? I struggled with speaking up during meetings and presen- tations at the beginning of my career. My confidence began to grow as I learned more over the years. It’s important to speak up, ask questions and share your insights! What outside activities

do you enjoy during you free time? Spending time with my hus- band and dog, playing tennis and being outside! What inspiring word of advice would you give to a young executive graduat- ing from college today? Don’t compare yourself to others! It’s easy to compare yourself to your friends or your peers.

hat is your most no- table project, deal or transaction?

Our team recently placed a complex military housing quota-share program that in- cluded 50 policies total. There was a significant amount of environmental data we had to sort through prior to sending out the submission. Our team worked diligently together and with multiple carrier partners to create a successful program for this client. How do you contribute to your company and/or the industry? I come from an environmen- tal consulting background where I spent most of my time working at contaminated sites or reviewing environmental data. The clients I work with now are often looking to in- sure properties with long and complicated industrial his- tories. My background as an environmental consultant al- lows me to better understand our clients’ sites and negotiate coverage on their behalf. What impact has social media/networking had on

Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in, about your current posi- tion and why you choose the field/profession you are in today? I began my career as a

geologist working for an en- vironmental consulting firm. I worked for different clients, largely real estate and oil and gas clients, doing various en- vironmental characterization and site remediation. Eventu- ally I started doing insurance loss control work at the same company before moving jobs to become an environmental insurance broker.

Matt Leonelli, Sheldon Gross Realty, Inc. “Always invest the time and effort necessary to cultivate relationships”


Few of my Favorite Things: Book: Lord of the Rings Trilogy What outside activities do you enjoy during your free time? I really love be- ing outside, so if I can find the time for fishing and boat - ing, plus some camping, I’ll aways do it. It’s relaxing, and actually reduces my stress. Beyond that, I’m a proud father, and I love taking out my daughter as frequently as possible. MAREJ I wanted to build solid, foun- dational relationships, and have a strongly positive repu- tation among brokers as well as clients. I wanted to be the person everyone enjoyed do- ing deals with. And nothing has really changed – those remain my primary business goals. Professionally, what has been your greatest accomplishment? I’d have to say working with Jersey Holdings’ Monmouth County Portfolio. I’ve added sig- nificant value for my client, having signed more than 40 distinct leases.

To be effective in whatever you do, you need to develop new ways of approaching a chal- lenge that differ from what everyone else is doing. Sec- ond, there’s empathy, which I’d define as the capacity to understand someone else’s perspective and then adjust your mindset accordingly. What were some of your early goals and did any- thing happen to change them? From the start, I knew

People are inclined to do business with individuals they like, feel comfortable with, and trust. So, the very last thing you want to be is a stranger or outsider. Who has had the stron- gest influence on you and your career? My parents un- doubtedly have had a greater impact on my life than anyone else. It’s not an exaggeration

to say that they molded how I view and understand the world around me. That said, since I began working for Sheldon Gross Realty, Execu- tive Vice President Jonathan Glick has been my mentor. He’s taught me a tremen-

dous amount about the entire commercial real estate field. Jonathan’s the consummate professional, and without his consistent guidance, I’d be far less capable than I am today. What unique qualities or personality traits do you
