managing director and head of
Colony Industrial. Since then, he’s
continued to build one of the most
skilled light industrial executive
teams in the US.
He helped to create Colony

of the platform to $3.2 billion in gross asset value over a three-year period. The Colony platform has hundreds of warehouse
buildings in major markets around the US, with a diversified tenant list that includes Amazon, Walgreens, UPS, FedEx and many

last-mile” delivery sector, Friedland has been an influential force in
industrial real estate investing for 30 years, and in light industrial

recognize the vital role that well-located infill warehouses would
play for firms competing in the emerging new economy.
