June 5, 2018 - Crow Holdings Industrial (CHI), the industrial development division of Dallas‐based Crow Holdings, announced that Clark Machemer has joined the firm as Senior Managing Director to lead CHI’s New Jersey office, completing CHI’s national platform build-out. Mr. Machemer joins CHI with 20 years of real estate development experience, and has been responsible for the leasing and development of more than 10 million square feet of industrial product, 1 million square feet of office product, and 250 residential units. At Crow Holdings Industrial, Mr. Machemer will be responsible for establishing and growing CHI’s presence in the Northeast industrial market, primarily sourcing and executing on new ground-up development opportunities.
“We are delighted to welcome Clark and to complete CHI’s national footprint. With six offices in strategic markets across the U.S., CHI now covers 50% of the U.S. industrial market in terms of net absorption.” said Ken Valach, CHI’s CEO. “Secular e-commerce trends make the industrial real estate market a compelling long-term opportunity.

The Crow Holdings legacy is rooted in industrial development, and no firm has had a greater impact on real estate across the U.S. CHI’s local expertise allows it to identify sites in strong distribution submarkets that offer tenants easy access to major roadways, rail, and airfreight infrastructure. I am honored to join such an accomplished team and to lead our efforts in the Northeast.”
