In 2001, when Phillips, the world’s largest processor of crab meat and a Maryland icon was looking to build a new headquarters, they were adamant that they wanted a new facility and did not want another old building. But Josh Neiman, at the time a senior development director at SBER, thought otherwise. Putting together the economic models and development plan, Josh and his team showed Phillips not only the programmatic benefits of putting the facility in a former Coca-cola bottling facility , but the economic benefits as well. Using the historic tax credit model, Phillips created a $25 million facility for a net cost of $15 million.
