NGKF Fills Out National Industrial Platform with Brokerage Team from Hart Corp.

Eight Industrial Property Specialists Make Switch
March 17, 2015
Eight real estate brokers from Hart Corp. have joined Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) in Philadelphia.

NGKF said the brokers, who specialize in industrial property transactions across secondary and tertiary U.S. markets, will help it expand its presence outside major metropolitan areas where its industrial coverage is focused.

NGKF CEO Barry Gosin said Hart Corp. has been widely recognized as a pioneer within the industrial real estate community, having established a successful niche business providing industrial real estate services in non-metropolitan areas in the U.S. and compiling an extensive client database.

"Having the Hart specialists exclusively part of the NGKF organization allows us to leverage their established corporate relationships and provide our clients with even more extensive national coverage," said Gosin.

Joining NGKF are Executive Managing Directors Robert Blackman and James Belcher, Associate Director Joseph Boerner and Director Howard Fertman, who will be based in NGKF’s Wayne, PA office and work on national accounts. Senior Managing Director Thomas Turner will cover the Carolinas/Virginia region from its Charlotte, NC office, while Director Bartell Hardison will cover the Southeast U.S. region from Atlanta. Senior Managing Director Arthur Ross will head up a newly opened office in Hartford, CT, while Managing Director Craig Nielson will cover the Midwest region from one of the firm's Midwest offices.

Geoffrey Kasselman, SIOR, executive managing director of NGKF’s national industrial practice, who is credited with recruiting the former Hart Corp. team, said he expects to announce more new hires soon.

"(This announcement) is a stepping stone to the on-boarding of additional industrial brokers in several locations," said Kasselman.
