BETHESDA, MD-Grubb & Ellis Co. has doubled the size of its office here, pulling in four new brokers from GVA Advantis. Kevin McGloon is the firm’s new senior vice president. Kenneth Smondrowski was named vice president, Peter Rosan assistant vice president and Kathryn Mootz senior associate.

The new hires are part of Grubb & Ellis’ efforts to jump start its Maryland platform, McGloon tells GlobeSt.com. “The Maryland office market has 65 million sf approximately. That is larger than many of the top markets in the country.”

The life sciences industry is one area on which he intends to focus. McGloon headed the GVA Life Science practice closing some one million sf in life science/laboratory related transactions, according to a Grubb statement.

The Maryland market is not, however, so deep as to allow the group to break down into several industries, he adds. “We’ll be looking at the market as a whole, not on an industry specific basis. However, the life sciences industry is very concentrated in Montgomery County. The 1-270 Corridor is nationally recognized as having a high concentration of these firms.”
