Fried Companies, Inc.

A Family Company

Mark and Barbara Fried fell in love with Virginia at first sight. They have lived here for almost 50 years, raising three children and building their business. But the Frieds are not typical developers. Visit their office, on a small farm near Crozet, Virginia, and you will be greeted by a rambunctious crew of six friendly dogs — some of them adopted by Mark during his travels through the state. FCI is a family operation, and their approach to development reflects Mark and Barbara Fried's values — honesty, integrity, respect for individuals and respect for the communities that they love. Joined at FCI by their daughter Leah and their nephew David Lesser, the Frieds lead an outstanding team of professionals in real estate, finance, government and community relations, planning and design, property management, leasing, and construction. The team works out of offices in Crozet and Ruckersville.

The Fried family and company would like to thank everyone for your support after the passing of Mr. Fried.

"During my 25 years as a supervisor in Fairfax County, I have known Mark and Barbara Fried as people who do what they say they are going to do. They are quality developers with integrity. They have been deeply involved with our community and understand that developers must share the costs as well as the benefits of growth."
— Joseph Alexander,
Former Supervisor,
Fairfax County

Community Commitment

For Mark and Barbara Fried, community commitment extends far beyond business. Both were the first in their families to graduate from college, and over the years, they have devoted significant time and resources to Virginia's community and state college systems, helping to make education more accessible. They have served under both Democrat and Republican governors to make housing more affordable for all Virginians. The Frieds have served and continue to serve as leaders for dozens of local charitable organizations throughout the state. Among their many personal projects, the Frieds co-founded Innisfree in Albemarle County, a pioneering model where adults with mental disabilities live and work in a village community. Mark and Barbara also established Charlottesville-Albemarle Riding Therapy (CART), a therapeutic horseback riding program for disabled adults and children. In their professional and personal activities, wherever they have lived and worked, the Frieds have strived to make their community a better place to live.
