Charlotte industrial brokerage team adds two new faces

Trinity Partners is pleased to announce the addition of Ezra Leak and Thomas Passenant to Charlotte’s industrial brokerage team. Prior to Trinity Partners, Leak was a broker with Monument Real Estate Partners and Costello Real Estate and Investments, specializing in landlord and tenant representation, investment sales, and land sales across industrial, hospitality, and multi-family asset classes. Passenant begins his brokerage career with Trinity Partners after years as a commercial real estate research and financial analyst, most recently with Bellwether Enterprise Real Estate Capital and Realty Trust Group. At Trinity Partners, Leak and Passenant will focus on flex and industrial assets, offering a range of commercial real estate services to industrial users and owners across the region.

“We’re excited to grow the industrial team with Thomas and Ezra,” noted Terry Brennan, Partner and leader of the industrial platform. “They have unique skillsets that complement our team. Ezra’s broad experience with multiple asset classes and industry roles will benefit his work with our industrial owners and users. Thomas’ hands-on experience and expertise as a financial and research analyst for respected industry leaders is the ideal foundation for his brokerage career.”

The addition of Leak and Passenant come as Charlotte’s industrial market continues to steadily expand as a top 10 US market for new product, highlighted by large logistics facilities along major Southeast interstates as users continue targeting Charlotte for expansion, promoting steady optimism for market growth.

Trinity Partners’ recent hires are a part of the Charlotte-headquartered firm’s continued growth across its locations. In December of last year, industry veteran Ben Speir, CCIM, joined to head up Charlotte’s Occupier Services division. Trinity Partners’ Greenville, South Carolina office recently opened a brokerage services division, with the addition of three new partners and four new brokers, with plans for additional hires this spring.
