Lincoln Property Company executive David Binswanger led the company’s growth in Los Angeles over the past decade, as the developer, prolific in the region, took on projects such as the Runway in Playa Vista, which it sold for $475 million last year.

Binswanger has now taken a larger role overseeing the company’s West Coast expansion, heading a wing called LPC West as its senior executive vice president, the company announced Monday.

LPC West will acquire, develop and manage properties in L.A., Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland.

As part of the new LPC West group, Lincoln is promoting several senior vice presidents to serve as executive vice presidents in all major cities on the West Coast, from San Diego to Seattle, Binswanger said in a statement.

Rob Kane, who has worked for the company since 2012, will now be the EVP of Lincoln’s L.A. office. Kane played a key role in, among other things, developing IMAX Entertainment’s West Coast Headquarters in Playa Vista and securing entitlements for a transit-oriented mixed-use community surrounding the Parsons headquarters in Old Pasadena.

Parke Miller will continue to lead Lincoln’s Orange County efforts. Brig Black, who helped open Lincoln’s San Diego office in 2012, is being promoted to lead the San Diego region. John Herr will be in charge of the company’s operations in San Francisco. Patrick Gilligan has moved from Lincoln’s San Francisco office, where he has worked since 2006, to become market head of the Seattle-Portland area.
