Paul Jacobs, Colin Reilly and Barbara Segalini of CBRE represented Datto, a cloud-based backup, disaster-recovery and business-continuity solution provider. David Fiore and JoAnn Brennan-McGrath of Marcus Partners represented the landlord, Clarion Partners.


Datto was subleasing about 50,000 square feet in Building 101, and spent about a year doing “a full market search with CBRE” before deciding to expand its global headquarters in the building and become a tenant, according to David Fiore, a principal with Marcus Partners, which leases and manages the corporate park.


“What’s important to note is they are a very young company,” Fiore said. “[Employees’] average age is the low 20s, and they started operations in 2006 in small space in Wilton. When they moved to the (Merritt 7) park they had ten to 20 employees. Today they have a couple of hundred. They’re a great employer, and it’s good to see a very high-growth tech company growing in this area.”
