Watson Land Company Appoints Jeffrey Jennison as Chief Executive Officer

Watson Land Company announced the appointment of Jeffrey Jennison as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer. Jennison has served as Watson’s president since 2014. The announcement completes a three year succession transition leading to the retirement in March 2017 of real estate industry veteran Bruce Choate, Watson’s CEO since 2003. Jennison assumes his new role as President and CEO with more than 17 years of experience as a senior leader at Watson. Since 2000, he has risen through the ranks after joining the Company as vice president of Asset Management and becoming Chief Operating Officer in 2013. Jennison’s new position as president and CEO gives him responsibility for the entirety of Watson’s portfolio and operations: from new development and investment to property management and tenant relations. Watson currently owns and operates 20 million square feet of master planned industrial real estate properties in key Southern California and East Coast markets. The company’s signature developments now encompass more than 1,700 acres located in Carson, Chino, Fontana and Redlands in Southern California; and Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania.
