Scott Katz


As the founder and President of Midland Retail, Katz oversees all operations for the company. With extensive experience in all aspects of retail development and brokerage, Katz has spearheaded more than forty retail development projects throughout the tri-state region. These projects have ranged from regional power centers to neighborhood retail centers to free-standing build-to-suits for national restaurants and retailers. Katz’ supervision of the development process on these projects has included all aspects including site selection, entitlement, financing, construction and finally company held portfolio management.

Through his guidance, Midland Retail’s brokerage department has coordinated the regional rollout of many chains such as Panera Bread, Chipotle, Ruby Tuesday, Great Clips and Boston Market, to name a few.

In addition, the company built a strong third party listing portfolio as well as the premier national tenant disposition service in the region.

Starting in the industry as a house renovator while attending The Ohio State University, Katz quickly moved on to become Vice President of the Midland Development Group based in St. Louis, prior to its acquisition by Regency Centers.

Katz is currently a board member of Wise Temple and a committee chair of the Jewish Federation. He is also a member of ICSC and a licensed broker in Ohio and Kentucky.
