Rosefellow founders Mike Jager, Sam Tsoumas: industrial real estate’s disruptors

The founders of non-traditional Montreal-based industrial developer and management firm Rosefellow explore the sector from their unique and disruptive perspectives.  

"The one thing that Sam (Tsoumas) and I had was our reputation. We didn’t have years and years worth of development. The one promise we made to every broker and landowner was that if we put a property under contract, we would take it to the finish line,” Mike Jager explains.

“We guarantee to conduct thorough due diligence when we're under contract and we will close the deal unless we find plutonium underground."

Arnold Fox, executive vice-president, and Jean-Marc Dubé, executive vice-president and industrial group practice lead, both with Colliers Montreal, speak with Jager and Tsoumas, the co-founders of Rosefellow, about their company that's disrupting the industry via unique branding and an "authentic" approach.

They explore:

  • How the pandemic allowed Rosefellow’s founders to focus on their strengths in development and site acquisition;
  • How the lack of availability of quality industrial space across Canada is influencing growth and rental rates in the market;
  • The impact of automation, emerging markets and e-commerce on the Canadian industrial real estate sector;
  • The need for increased sustainability in this sector and how developers, contractors and investors can work towards delivering more environmentally-friendly buildings;
  • Predictions for the national industrial market post-pandemic;
  • A comparison of Montreal’s industrial market to those of Vancouver and Toronto and the potential for Calgary;
  • The future of the Canadian real estate market with continued growth and innovation driven by changes in consumer behaviour and technological advancements

So sit back and join us for an insightful and engaging discussion.
