What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I run Milvado Property Group, owner and manager of industrial, office, mixed-use, and R&D properties in Nassau and Suffolk counties. I’ve been busy with our rebranding. Over the last 18 months, we’ve invested over $14 million in capital infrastructure and tenant improvements, leased over 400,000 s/f to new tenants, and signed 900,000 s/f worth of renewals and expansions. Now the priority tasks are enhancing our internal processes, upgrading our tenant base and reducing our vacancy rate.
How do you unwind from a busy day? I mainly spend time with my family. I help my daughter with her homework and attend as many of both her and my son’s sports events. My son plays soccer for Bucknell University.
