Over the course of Larry Sidman’s career, he has honed his skills in all aspects of outdoor billboard real estate. From finding sites, permitting, and guiding municipalities through the variance process, Larry is an expert. He has been providing that expertise to Jones Outdoor and its clients since 2007.
Upon his graduation from Western Michigan University, Larry joined Gannett Outdoor Company in Detroit as a lease representative, quickly rising to become a department manager. After five years with Gannett, Larry took a position with Ackerly Communications of South Florida as the Regional Real Estate Manager.
Three years into his tenure at Ackerly Communications, Gannett Outdoor convinced Larry to return. He moved back North to become Real Estate Manager, where he was tasked with reorganizing the department.
Larry then led two joint ventures. The first was for Macdonald & Company and Grand Truck Railroad. As General Manager, Larry guided the two companies to build new outdoor signs on railroad properties throughout Michigan. The second joint venture involved Chicago and Northwest Railroads, with new billboards in Illinois and Wisconsin.
Working with Jones on these joint ventures led him to joining us.
Larry takes great satisfaction in seeing the results of his work as he travels looking for new properties. He looks forward to seeing what new projects are around the next corner.
