Senior Vice President
Acquisitions & Investments

Doug Coleman is responsible for creating new Hunt Midwest business platforms and growing the company’s core services, including identifying new opportunities and partners, conducting financial analyses, and overseeing all due diligence efforts. 

Doug has more than 40 years of experience in finance, acquisitions, real estate development, and management, including 30 years at Hunt Midwest. He has played a role in nearly every major business effort the company has undertaken over the past several decades, from acquiring and selling amusement park and mining operations for the Lamar Hunt Family’s expansive real estate holdings to creating custom financial dashboard models to assess deals and expanding the company into several new industry sectors. Doug led Hunt Midwest’s entry into senior living development in 2011, first with Benton House communities across Kansas City and now with 850 total senior living units across Missouri, Kansas, Florida, Tennessee, and Colorado. Doug also developed Hunt Midwest’s growing self-storage brand, StorTropolis, with 4,900 units at six locations completed or under development throughout greater Kansas City. Doug also was integral to the five-year campaign led by Hunt Midwest leadership and Kansas City civic leaders to create and pass new legislation in Missouri to incentivize data centers to locate in the state, which has since led to several Silicon Valley tech giants to build new projects in the region, including a $1 billion Google data center campus at Hunt Midwest Business Center. He also serves on the board of directors for Hunt Southwest, a joint venture which has developed more than 6.6 million square feet of industrial space across Texas.

Doug was inducted into the Midwest Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame in 2023 by Midwest Real Estate News. He currently serves on the boards of the Northland Clay County Economic Development Council, North Kansas City Business Council, and Northland Regional Chamber of Commerce. He also is a past board member for the North Kansas City Schools Education Foundation and the statewide Missouri Economic Development Financing Association. 

Doug graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and earned a Master of Business Administration in finance from Avila University. He is a lifelong resident of the Kansas City metro and lives with his wife, Dixie, in the Northland.
