Becknell Industrial

Presenting Sponsor

Led by owners who built the business on long-term relationships and a full-service real estate approach for industrial clients across the country, read more about how Becknell Industrial got started and meet our talented team.

Becknell Industrial specializes in the development, investment and management of industrial properties across the United States. The company currently owns interests in 193 properties totaling more than 34 million square feet. Vertically integrated, Becknell is responsible for every aspect of the project providing the decision-making authority and expertise to meet client expectations for a high-performance facility delivered on time and on budget.

Becknell launched into the industrial real estate business in 1990 when co-founders Dan Harrington and Fritz Hartrich joined forces to build and lease a custom warehouse to Nabisco, a client Hartrich began developing for in the 1970s. It was the first of many enduring relationships Becknell has fostered since.

Under the long-term leadership of Harrington, who now serves as Becknell’s Executive Chairman and Chief Investment Officer, Becknell’s national portfolio now includes more than 34 million square feet of industrial real estate property, in addition to over 10 million square feet of developable ground for future development.

In January 2022, Mark Shapland transitioned from the COO role to President and Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Dan Harrington. Shapland is joined by a strong team of leaders that include CFO Matt Cohoat, COO Peter Shaplin and President of Construction and Design - Craig Kouri.

At the core of Becknell’s superior delivery system is our design-build construction capabilities. While Harrington and Hartrich are no longer involved in the day-to-day operations, Becknell continues to benefit from their dedicated construction expertise, tapping into their decades national construction experience.

Becknell’s vertically integrated approach takes an experienced team of professionals working closely together. Our executive team alone has more than 100 years of collective real estate and business experience, while the rest of our highly talented staff incorporates a wealth of technical expertise in key trades that include architects, engineers, construction managers and CPAs.
