CHICAGO, IL—Bridge Development Partners named Steve Groetsema of the company’s Chicago office chief operating officer. Groetsema will support Bridge’s continued national and international industrial real estate portfolio expansion, in addition to enhancing the company’s internal infrastructure and processes that drive its acquisition, development, and property management operations.

“As Bridge has continued to rapidly expand in markets throughout the United States—completing more than $1 billion in transactions last year alone—and into international markets, we’ve realized that there’s a need for an enhanced company-wide internal infrastructure to streamline and further scale our operations,” says Bridge’s founder and CEO Steve Poulos. “We’ve added the position of chief operating officer to our executive team to fulfill this need – and there is no better man for the job than Steve. Since Steve began his career with Bridge 12 years ago, it’s been a pleasure to work closely with him as he’s grown alongside the company, and we’re thrilled that we now have the opportunity to benefit from his robust leadership skills and experience at the national level.”
