Bridge Industrial (“Bridge”) announced today that it has welcomed David Aschenbrand, formerly of Lineage Logistics, as its new Vice President of Cold Storage.
In his new role, Aschenbrand will oversee the day-to-day operations and management of Bridge’s cold storage platform, serving as a key liaison between cold storage users and Bridge’s market officers in the company’s core supply-constrained markets of Chicago, Miami, New Jersey/New York, Los Angeles/San Francisco, Seattle and London.
“Dave brings a unique skill set to Bridge, with years of experience with one of the country’s most active cold storage operators and developers, as well as a sales background that provides insight into what occupiers require when selecting a modern facility,” said Tony Pricco, CIO and Partner at Bridge Industrial. “He will serve as a critical team member for Bridge as we continue to expand our portfolio in response to the surging demand for cold storage. We are extremely excited to have him on board, and look forward to him contributing to our continued success.”
Aschenbrand previously served as Director at Lineage Logistics, where he oversaw all aspects of the transportation and logistics division. As one of five senior leaders of the division, he helped grow its overall revenue by more than 52 percent between 2016 and 2019.
“Bridge is widely recognized as a leader in not just cold storage, but the industrial sector at large, and I’m both humbled and honored to join the team,” said Aschenbrand. “The need for first-class, modern cold storage facilities is greater than ever, as consumers continue to embrace home delivery of everything from fresh produce and meal subscription services to pharmaceuticals. I look forward to applying my expertise and experience to help Bridge expand its already impressive portfolio, and help further solidify our company as leaders in this growing area of the market.”
Prior to Lineage Logistics, Aschenbrand worked in business development roles at third-party logistics and transportation services provider C.H. Robinson Worldwide, as well as material handling solutions company Abel Womack. He also served as co-owner and Vice President of Operations for Diamond Rock Spring Water, a New Jersey-based water delivery service, from 1997 to 2004.
Aschenbrand holds a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences from Lock Haven University.
