January 13, 2022

Position to focus on merging technology with physical portfolio to create new infrastructure environments


January 13, 2022 [DETROIT] —Bedrock, Detroit’s largest real estate developer, today announced that Michael Osment will join the firm as the first Chief Technology Officer, effective immediately.

Osment will lead Bedrock’s Technology team across its Detroit and Cleveland portfolio, including building services, enterprise project management systems, data management and IT. In this role, Osment 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,” said 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.”

Osment has spent more than 20 years as an information and technology executive and helped to pioneer “Smart Building” infrastructure - which emphasizes cutting edge wireless technology and the use of data and analytics to optimize building services, enhance sustainability, reduce operating costs and create new streams of revenue.

“I’m excited to join the Bedrock team to help lure tenants from the suburbs to the heart of downtown Detroit,” said 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.”

Most recently, Osment served as the interim Chief Information Officer at Fortium Partners. In this role, he led the turnaround of a rapidly growing manufacturing company after a failed enterprise resource planning implementation.

He has also held the role of Chief Information and Technology Officer at AlixPartners, Taubman, and with the Enterprise Activities Group at General Motors. Osment helped to define “Smart Malls” and has led the way in developing fiber optic infrastructure to deliver new services and cut energy usage two-fold.

Osment earned a Bachelor of Biology degree from the University of Michigan and went on to earn his MBA from his alma mater. He holds a Realcomm Digie Award for ‘Most Intelligent Retail Portfolio’ and enjoys hiking with his wife when not developing new smart-infrastructure systems.
