Stuart Lichter

Stuart Lichter is the president and founder of Industrial Realty Group, LLC (IRG), which through its affiliated partnerships and limited liability companies, operates a portfolio containing over 100 million square feet of space in 28 states. The portfolio is one of the largest in the United States and includes the former headquarters of Goodyear Tire & Rubber in Akron, OH; the former Weyerhaeuser campus near Seattle, WA; and multiple former General Motors plants and U.S. military bases throughout the country. He is often drawn to older properties along the Rust Belt, needing IRG’s expertise in renovation, repositioning and management. A high concentration of these properties are in Ohio. The nationwide portfolio represents virtually every area of real estate, including office buildings, industrial and warehouse buildings, shopping centers, business parks, hotels, mini-storage facilities, airfields and hangars, apartments and mixed-use developments.

By developing creative real estate strategies, Mr. Lichter has convinced many Fortune 500 companies to halt moving their headquarters out of the country or state, thereby saving countless American jobs. After his purchase and redevelopment of McClellan Air Force Base, an 8.5 million sq. ft. and 3,000-acre site in Sacramento, the property became a thriving business park with more than 240 companies and approximately 14,000 job opportunities. Under Mr. Lichter’s leadership, IRG became the master developer for the Hall of Fame Village powered by Johnson Controls project in Canton, OH.

Mr. Lichter has attended Hunter College, Pace University and New York University School of Law. He has been featured on CNN and Fox News, as well as in The New York Times and Forbes Magazine.
