Industrial Influencers 2022
The industrial asset class shows little sign of wear and tear, although it is equally true that the category is not surging as it did last year. That, though, is a function of the economy and not necessarily industrial’s fundamentals. Change, however, is underway in the category as we have discussed elsewhere in this issue, and it will require the top men and women to continue to navigate these new trends. We believe we have picked that top talent with this year’s industrial influencers.
Colleagues say Zach Harris has an incredible drive to succeed both in his personal and professional life, and that he balances this ambition with humility, kindness and a deep sense of fairness that he offers to both his clients and co-workers. Harris began his industry career at Stan Johnson Co. 11 years ago, and he now serves as a director at the firm, where he specializes in the disposition, acquisition and capitalization of net lease assets for clients nationwide. With a strong track record in the industrial space, he has made a name for himself in the industrial outdoor storage sector by participating on panels and authoring numerous thought-leadership pieces that explore trends in the growing niche. During his tenure at the firm, Harris has contributed to the closing of more than 240 transactions, totaling more than $3.75 billion in transaction volume. Some of his more recent industrial transactions include an IOS property in St. Louis that traded in a 1031 exchange, the sale of a Texas IOS facility leased to Herc Rentals, a Midwest warehouse that sold to a REIT for $12.5 million, and a multi-tenant industrial property that closed for $14 million. Harris previously received a Stan Johnson Co. core value award for integrity – a peer-nominated recognition that is awarded annually. During the pandemic, his production volume increased, and he was elected president and board member of NAIOP’s Oklahoma chapter.
