Bridge Development Partners announced today that it has hired Jared Sullivan as its Vice President, Head of Research.
In his new role, Sullivan will support capital raising and investor relations efforts, spearhead market research and studies to support BRIDGE’s growth into new markets and submarkets, and guide ongoing thought leadership.
The installation of Sullivan’s position is one in a series of steps to further the company’s capital raising strategy, in addition to continuing its relationships with Banner Oak Capital Partners (“Banner Oak”), Teacher Retirement System of Texas (“Texas Teachers”) and other equity partners. Robust support from these partners has contributed to BRIDGE’s success as a leading developer of industrial properties with over $7 billion of assets.
“Jared’s research and data expertise is integral to helping BRIDGE succeed as we further our capital raising and acquisition strategy, and to provide the market’s best intelligence to our stakeholders,” said Steve Poulos, CEO at Bridge Development Partners. “His years of economic analyses experience will assist BRIDGE’s participation and advancement in the capital markets and our portfolio expansion, and boost all of our efforts as we expand our presence in our core U.S. markets, and establish a new office in London later this year.”
Sullivan will perform research essential to BRIDGE’s investment process, helping to focus corporate resources to maximize investment performance, including market and submarket economic analysis, real estate supply and demand analysis, international market research, and competitive intelligence.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to translate my previous experience utilizing data to grow BRIDGE’s investment strategy and build upon its already strong foundation of capital raising and institutional partnerships,” said Sullivan. “I look forward to working with our executive team to proactively understand and meet the needs of stakeholders with BRIDGE’s superior market intelligence as the company continues to expand domestically and internationally.”
