Bedrock, a real estate developer in Detroit, announced that Michael Osment is joining the firm as its first chief technology officer.
In his new role, Osment will lead the technology team across its Detroit and Cleveland portfolio, including building services, enterprise project management systems, data management, and IT. He also will merge technology with physical buildings to create new environments that deliver better services, reduce energy usage, and enhance digital infrastructure.
“As we look to reinforce Detroit’s position as the technology-hub of the Midwest, Bedrock needs to redefine its physical infrastructure and ensure that our buildings are retrofitted and designed as tech-focused spaces,” says Ivy Greaner, COO at Bedrock. “Michael has a unique and strong background in technology, analytics and architecture, and will help lead Bedrock’s portfolio into the next stage of digital building optimization.”
He most recently held the role of chief information and technology officer at Fortium Partners. He also held the same role at AlixPartners, Taubman, and with the Enterprise Activities Group at General Motors. Osment earned his bachelor’s degree and MBA from the University of Michigan.
“I’m excited to join the Bedrock team to help lure tenants from the suburbs to the heart of downtown Detroit,” says Osment. “Through the implementation of new tenant experiences and amenities incorporating advanced technology, Bedrock spaces will be exciting environments that fuse the digital and physical worlds to make downtown a clear choice for tenants, offering key services that can’t be found outside the city limits.”
