Skanska Makes New Hires, Promotions In Attempt To Strengthen DC Team


Skanska USA, an active DC developer with projects in Foggy Botton, Capitol Riverfront and NoMa, is bolstering its DC real estate development team with two new additions and one promotion.

Jennifer Ralph Tatum has joined Skanska as director of leasing, coming over from Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, where she has worked as a director since 2013. Prior to that, Tatum spent eight years as a tenant rep for CBRE. She will be tasked with, among other projects, filling the uncommitted office space in Skanska's $116M spec office project in Capitol Riverfront. The 220K SF building at 99 M St. SE delivers in 2018.

Markus Dangre is crossing the ocean to join the DC team from Stockholm, where he worked as a project manager for Skanska's Nordic region for nine years. In his new position, as director of real estate development for the firm's DC team, Dangre will pursue new land deals and will oversee the developer's Tyber Place project in NoMa. 

Brad Mason has been with Skanska DC as a senior development manager since 2014 and has led the developer's project at 2112 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, a 250K SF Foggy Bottom office project that last year signed a law firm anchor for its top five floors. Mason is being promoted to director of real estate development and will support the company's regional growth by looking for new development opportunities. 

In addition to the NoMa, Foggy Bottom and Capitol Riverfront projects, Skanska is also building DC Water's new HQ in Capitol Riverfront and is developing American University's East campus project. 

CORRECTION, MARCH 29, 5:50 P.M. EST: The project cost for Skanska's 99 M was $116M, not $56M as a previous version of this story stated. The story has been updated.
