John Cohoat
Vice President of Development

John’s role as Vice President of Development is to make sure deals are structured to everyone’s best interests – and, most important, to manage the details so clients don’t have to. As someone who earned degrees in both finance and law, John’s naturally wired for this job. John has been directly involved in the leasing and development of over 8.2 million square feet of industrial buildings. John was also directly involved in the disposition of those assets as investment sales in excess of $500,000,000. From the small details to closing large transactions, clients can be confident John has it covered.
