Miguel Angel Barbagallo
Founder & Chairman of B Group
As co-founder and chairman of the B Group Holding Company board and managing member of B Developments, Miguel Angel Barbagallo is a natural-born leader. With over 40 years of experience in international real estate, Miguel Angel has revolutionized the Miami landscape with a focus on creating development and land acquisition projects based on integrity, quality, and excellence.
Miguel Angel’s experience in market sourcing, strategic planning, and management of comprehensive development and construction teams has grown B Developments into a successful and reputable company. Miguel Angel has evolved the 90-year-old family company, transitioning from a successful South American firm to taking on the United States market. He obtained recognition for his forward-thinking vision in underdeveloped markets, which later surged with his influence. Landmark projects include Terrazas River Park in Miami River/Allapattah, Altos de Miami in Little Havana, and Zoi House in Coconut Grove.
As the company grew, Miguel Angel led B Group Holding Company to new real estate markets such as asset management in both the commercial and residential sectors. This strategic direction led to the purchase and sale of hundreds of garden-style apartments and now 2.5 million square feet of commercial office and warehouse space throughout the southern United States.
His doctoral degree in civil law and consumers rights is complemented by his passion for sports, arts, and philosophy. Today, he’s proud of the efforts he and his brother, Alberto Jorge Edgardo Barbagallo, have put into creating a legacy for their family company that will last for generations.
