A Newmark Knight Grubb Frank broker who had represented the Malkin Holdings-managed Empire State Building has been tapped as senior vice president and director of leasing and marketing at the Empire State Realty Trust, a real estate investment trust that includes the iconic property.

Since 2002, Ryan Kass handled more than 600 deals as NGKF’s senior managing director. He also worked on leasing campaigns for Carnegie Hall Tower, 645 Madison Avenue and One Grand Central Place. He will hold the same job title at the REIT as Fred Posniak, an earlier hire who used to work at W&H Properties.

Along with William Cohen, Julie Christiano and Jillian Santiago, Kass represented Malkin Holdings in July When Its One Grand Central Place, now the second-largest building in the trust, signed research firm Gerson Lehrman to a 65,000-square-foot deal, as previously reported. [GlobeSt]Mark Maurer
