PHOENIX, Ariz. (March 7, 2022) — CRG, the national real estate development and investment firm, today announced it has hired Cody Anderson as director of construction management to help the firm continue its rapid industrial expansion in the Southwest Region. A 27-year veteran of the construction industry, Anderson will direct industrial site selection and analysis as well as planning, design and construction activities for ground-up and value-add industrial assets.
In his new role, Anderson will support two active master-planned industrial parks in the Phoenix market: The Cubes at Glendale and The Cubes at Mesa Gateway. The Cubes at Glendale is a 335-acre industrial park that upon completion will include 5.5 million square feet of speculative and build-to-suit warehouse and distribution facilities at the intersection of Reems Road and Northern Avenue in the West Valley submarket of Phoenix.

“Over the past year, we’ve significantly expanded our industrial presence in the Phoenix market, and we need leaders like Cody to help us keep pace with demand for our facilities in the Southwest, including from Fortune 500 companies,” said Mark Sonnenberg, senior vice president and partner, Southwest region for CRG. “Cody is highly regarded in the industry for his extensive expertise in construction management, and we’re excited to leverage his experience as we continue to execute CRG’s strategic vision in the Southwest.”
Prior to joining CRG, Anderson held leadership positions over a 27-year career with Bjerk Builders, where he was responsible for project management, general management, superintending, estimating, value engineering, and more. He received his Bachelor of Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing from Western Colorado University.
