John Colt Landreth - Managing and Founding Member

Colt has forty plus (40+) years of experience in the medical, commercial, industrial, and retail real estate sectors focusing on development, investment, finance, valuation, leasing, and sales.  In 2005, Colt pioneered Real Estate Due Diligence (REDD) consulting for PE clients’ acquisitions of target and add-on companies. 


In 2014, Colt took it one (1) step further by offering Portfolio Lease Management Organization and Optimization to our PE clients’ multi-site healthcare investment.   


The PPA MOB Fund was the final piece of the platform, offering doctors/landlords the opportunity to contribute their clinic properties to the Fund and transition from active to passive ownership without liquidating. 


Prior to founding PPA, Colt spent eleven (11) years at Cushman & Wakefield and Grubb & Ellis selling major assets for institutional investors, e.g., RREEF, University of Chicago Endowment Fund, PM Realty Advisors, IBS Realty Advisors, et al. 


During the years 1981-1991, Colt was a Principal at Stanhope Advisors, Inc., which he founded, and Managing General Partner of development partnership FCL Properties. During this period FCL developed industrial parks in Elgin and Mundelein in partnership with the University of Chicago Endowment Fund as a partner as well as many other industrial properties. Colt conceived, initiated, and closed a 62-acre land sale with the TCW Land Fund (Purchaser) and Prentiss Properties (Seller) in Vernon Hills, IL as a financing. Colt has also developed the Skil Corporation headquarters financed with an optimized mortgage with amortization options.  During this decade Colt developed the Wholesale Build-To-Suit program which he implemented for developments for James River, Uarco, and Rhone Poulenc-Rorer. 

​​Colt is the Founder of SkyRise Chicago, the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower Stair Climb, benefitting the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Skyrise raises $1,200,000 net for RIC each year.
