Former Chicago region Partner to spearhead acquisitions across the U.S., supporting Bridge’s newly launched value-add platform
CHICAGO (March 28, 2022) – Bridge Industrial (“Bridge”), the privately-owned, vertically integrated real estate operating company and investment manager, announced today that it has promoted Nick Siegel to Partner, Acquisitions. In his new role, he will lead Bridge’s expanded national acquisitions platform, with a focus on value-add strategy across its core U.S. markets.
Siegel will remain based at Bridge’s headquarters in Chicago, where he previously served as Partner for the region, and will oversee a national team of professionals charged with growing the firm’s strategy in Chicago, New Jersey, New York, Miami, Los Angeles/San Francisco, and Seattle. In December 2021, Bridge completed its first acquisition under its new platform, purchasing Pompano Beach Commerce Park — a three-building, 336,852-square-foot industrial campus in Pompano Beach, Florida.
“The expansion of our value-add platform complements our long history of ground-up development business,” said Steve Poulos, Founder, CEO, and Partner of Bridge Industrial. “Nick’s expertise and his tenure with Bridge make him the perfect person to lead our nationwide strategy.”
Since joining Bridge in 2015, Siegel has been responsible for Bridge’s acquisition and development activities throughout the Chicagoland region. Throughout his time at Bridge, he has been involved in over 18.5 million square feet of industrial real estate transactions across both Chicago and South Florida.
“I could not be more excited to play a leading role in our growing acquisitions platform,” said Siegel. “As we continue to expand our range of capabilities, our dedicated team will oversee the acquisition of existing building and shell/forward opportunities that can meet the increased demand for warehouse space across the U.S.”
Nick is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he holds a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree with a double major in Real Estate and Urban Land Economics and Finance, Investments and Banking. He is a member of NAIOP, the WREAA, and is the president of the CJE Senior Life Associate Board.
