Brennan Assembles Leasing Team for Midwest

Brennan Investment Group has brought in a team to oversee leasing efforts for its growing portfolio in the Midwest. The company has hired VP Scott Gibbel (pictured) and senior associate Fordy Gates, who will join leasing associate Sarah Brennan, who has been promoted from her role as director of marketing, in executing new leases and renewals.

Gibbel joins Brennan after working for Prologis in the Chicago market. Gates, a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin’s Real Estate MBA program, previously worked at JLL in the industrial investment sales group in Chicago.

“While we are gratified to be over 95% occupied, we recognize that tenant relations and leasing is the lifeblood of operations,” said managing principal Kevin Brennan. “The addition of Scott and Fordy, along with the promotion of Sarah, demonstrates our commitment to being a best-in-class operator of industrial real estate.”
