President | CEO


Gerry founded the Shear Property Group (“Shear”) in 2008 to take advantage of opportunities being presented during the economic downturn.  Gerry’s industrial real estate history goes back to his role as a real estate manager for a privately held firm that invested directly into railroad real estate assets, industrial properties from the resolution trust corporation, and the defense base closure & realignment. Thereafter, he was the managing partner for the real estate group of the largest privately held 3PL operator in North America. A role he held for over 20 years until the recent sale of the company to a Fortune 100 buyer. Gerry now dedicates his time to growing the asset base of the Shear with active development projects and opportunistic portfolio and land acquisitions.




Shear Property Group purchases and develops industrial properties with interest in modern bulk, mid-size distribution, and flex office/warehouse property types.  Targeted existing building acquisitions have a “value add” aspect – driven by high vacancy, anticipated near-term vacancy or offer a strong yield opportunity.   Additionally, Shear  will purchase land for new speculative or build-to-suit development.  Shear operates only as a principal, is well capitalized, has immediately available funds, and can close on a transaction quickly.
