SAN FRANCISCO – Real estate industry veteran Brandon Wang is joining Lincoln as Executive Vice President, overseeing the Northern California region for the company’s LPC West unit which spans the Bay Area, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. Wang will lead all aspects of Lincoln’s activities in Northern California, including acquisitions, development, asset and property management, and repositioning of existing commercial, retail and mixed-use properties.
Wang joins LPC West from Kilroy, where he served as Senior Vice President of Investments and Development for Northern California since 2011. At LPC West, he will work alongside John Herr, who has spearheaded all activities for Lincoln in the region for more than two decades. Most recently, Herr led the effort to develop and reposition two of San Francisco’s most iconic buildings, 350 Bush Street and 500 Pine Street.
“Brandon’s talent and expertise make him an ideal leader for our team here in northern California,” said Herr. “We are confident in his ability to deliver, and we are thrilled to welcome him aboard.”
Lincoln’s activities in the Bay Area are growing, with additional expansion projected in the years ahead. Earlier this year, the company was selected to serve as the asset manager of the Transbay Transit Center, a regional transportation hub under construction in downtown San Francisco. The center, dubbed the “Grand Central Station of the West,” will include over 100,000 square feet of retail space and a 5.4-acre rooftop park.
“Brandon’s extensive experience with acquisitions, entitlements, and development in the Bay area is a huge asset to our team, and he is uniquely qualified to provide the highest quality service to our clients and partners,” said David Binswanger, Senior Executive Vice President of LPC West. “We are excited to join forces to continue to grow and expand our presence in northern California.”
At Kilroy, Wang oversaw the sourcing of new acquisition opportunities and every step of the acquisition process from investment underwriting to the closing process. Wang also led development efforts, overseeing land acquisition, entitlements, construction, and project leasing. Previously, he held positions at Lowe Enterprises, Morgan Stanley and Cushman and Wakefield. Wang graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Southern California and completed his M.B.A. from the University of Michigan.
“Lincoln Property Company’s Western region platform is best-in-class, and I’m excited to join a team that is centered on providing value-added services for its clients,” said Wang. “John Herr has built an incredible portfolio over the past 25 years, and I’m ready to help drive growth and expand Lincoln’s footprint even further. LPC has a tremendous west coast team, and I’m thrilled to join as the lead in the Bay Area.”
“Brandon’s knowledge, experience, and drive are a great fit for LPC West,” Binswanger said. “He’s already hit the ground running.”
