Hankinson, who will fill the position immediately, will give regional support to Ryan developers and implement key sales efforts for the expansion of major national accounts. He has been with the company since 2007, serving as vice president of development for the past six years. During this time, he has completed over three million square feet of built-to-suit projects, maximized Ryan’s depth and breadth of services in design, construction, finance and real estate management.
“One of our key strategies for 2017 is to nationalize the success we’ve had with major corporate build-to suit projects for customers like State Farm, Oracle, Toro, Wells Fargo and McKesson,” Jeff Smith, national president of Ryan Cos., said in a prepared statement. “Casey is the perfect leader to do just that. He’s been a successful developer in and around the upper Midwest and now will lead our national efforts.”
