Alex Ojjeh is a serial entrepreneur, investor and the Chief Technology Officer of American Orient Partners, a private equity firm that specializes in growth-stage and mid-market investments. Alex recently extended his reach in Tennessee with the acquisition of two warehouse buildings, a move that is set to disrupt the global logistics industry and warehouse distribution. He bought one empty and one aging warehouse building under the Singapore, Hong Kong-based investment and operating company.
“American Orient acknowledges the importance and potential of this investment in not only the stable occupation but also in the capital structure. We are lucky to add this portfolio to our own portfolio and appreciate the consideration of our business by the owner when making the decision to sell the portfolio,” said Ojjeh on behalf of American Orient Partners. “As e-commerce continues to influence how we shop for products in the USA, there is also a need for industrial and logistics spaces,” Alex continued.
American Orient has grown to become a major force in the Asia Pacific region, with a presence in different industries while driving transformation and value creation. Under the leadership of the likes of Alex Ojjeh, the private investment firm has continued to grow in leaps and bounds, making revolutionary investment decisions.
Alex Ojjeh started his entrepreneurial journey very early in life, investing in vending machines at the age of 18. He helped American Orient achieve their goal before starting his business, worldwide hedge fund company, AO Asset management. AO Asset has over $1 billion in assets under management. Alex has shown his entrepreneurial prowess over the years, the businessman is a tireless champion.
The recent acquisition of two warehouse buildings – Grayland Distribution and Fulfillment, a 50,000SQFT warehouse, and Lesaint Logistics, which should create over 2,000 additional jobs to each city, is a further reiteration of the company’s value creation motive. The move will also disrupt the logistics industry, ensuring that trucks are delivered within two days to almost any point in the mainland USA. While the terms of the deal and the seller’s identity remain confidential, American Orient Capital notes the portfolio totals 2.02 million square feet and will be held by the private investment firm.
