Margarita Martinez Miguez

EVP - General Counsel

Margarita (Margie) Martinez Miguez joined Scout Cold Logistics in 2021 as Executive Vice President and General Counsel.  She oversees all legal affairs for Scout Cold Logistics including the structuring of all contracts related to investments, development/construction, and leasing as well as all legal matters related to capital formation and governance. 

Margie was formerly Executive Vice President and General Counsel for Flagler Global Logistics, the largest industrial developer in Florida and a subsidiary of Florida East Coast Industries (FECI).  In that capacity, she oversaw all legal affairs of Flagler Global Logistics with a scope of responsibility materially similar to her role at Scout Cold Logistics.  

Prior to her role at Flagler, Margie served as Vice President and Assistant General Counsel of FECI.  Her involvement spanned across FECI and its subsidiary real estate, transportation, logistics and infrastructure businesses where she led a wide variety of legal matters including development and entitlement, financing, permitting and partnership issues related to project development. 

Margie worked with the FECI family of companies since 1993 as outside counsel when she was a partner at the law firm Steel Hector & Davis LLP, which subsequently merged into Squire Sanders & Dempsey LLP (now known as Squire Patton Boggs LLP).  During her tenure at the firm, Margie worked on a diverse range of construction projects from billion-dollar production facilities to world-class travel destinations, many of which involved multi-national parties.  Those included high-end boutique hotels in California, gaming and hotel facilities in the Caribbean and port projects from Mexico to Turks and Caicos. In addition, she has helped to structure and develop public-private projects, such as performance centers and baseball stadiums.  

She earned her Juris Doctorate, cum laude, from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Science, cum laude, from the University of Miami.
