Prominent New York real estate executive Jamie Schwartz has been named President of the Hudson Valley iCampus, a 2 million-square-foot mixed-use, multi-tenanted campus on 207 acres in the hamlet of Pearl River, Rockland County, N.Y. The campus was sold by Pfizer, Inc. in 2015 to Industrial Realty Group, LLC (IRG), a real estate development and investment firm that owns more than 100 million square feet of commercial property across the U.S. The site is managed by its affiliate, IRG Realty Advisors, LLC (IRG RA).

Schwartz’s appointment comes after an extensive executive search for the leadership role at the campus. He has already begun a major rebranding effort, renaming the property Hudson Valley iCampus. It was previously the New York Center for Innovation. Schwartz also is responsible for reintroducing the property to current and prospective tenants and to brokers, as well as building and leading a strong management and operations team. Additionally, Schwartz will be planning and executing a development strategy for the vast amount of buildable land at the site.

“We’re thrilled Jamie decided to continue his very successful career at our Hudson Valley iCampus,” said Stuart Lichter, President and Chairman of IRG. “His experience, accomplishments and reputation in the marketplace as well as his relationships in the community have already had a positive impact.”
