Robert Scannell

Indianapolis, IN

Robert Scannell is president and co-founder of Scannell Properties. Bob oversees all aspects of the company’s investments and development projects.

He founded the company in 1990 with a focus on build-to-suit leased projects for clients needing such projects on a repeat basis. His vision was to create a streamlined, entrepreneurial company that could develop projects anywhere in the US, using its own capital to fund the developments.

Bob was one of the first to structure a commercial real estate development firm without an owned construction company. This visionary structure, and his relentless focus on precise execution, is why Scannell Properties can regularly deliver even the most complex projects on time and on budget.

Bob’s leadership also has resulted in Scannell Properties earning a stellar reputation as an employer of choice. His support for the team of entrepreneurs and attention to results enables the company to select from the best and brightest in the industry.

Sensing industry trends and with an eye to the future, Bob added speculative projects to the company’s capabilities, and in 2018 Bob expanded the company’s operations to Europe. This overall vision has resulted in the company now consistently completing new development of more than $4 billion annually. Scannell Properties has built over 300 projects in 44 states plus Canada and Europe. 

Prior to forming Scannell Properties Bob was a partner at Duke Realty in Indianapolis.
