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.
