Ryan Companies US Inc. said Monday that it has promoted Tony Barranco to vice president of Development, Office and Mixed-Use in the NorthCentral Region.
Barranco will be filling the position previously held by Rick Collins for the past 15 years. Collins was promoted to president of Ryan’s SouthWest Region earlier this year.
Barranco will assume the role of Project Development Executive for Ryan’s $400 million Downtown East project, an ambitious mixed-use development near the $1 billion Vikings stadium.
He will also lead a variety of corporate office and urban mixed-use developments in the Twin Cities and throughout Ryan’s North-Central region.
Barranco will concentrate on corporate office opportunities, while Casey Hankinson, vice president of Development for Ryan’s NorthCentral region, will concentrate on industrial build-to-suit projects.
Said Hankinson: "Both the office and industrial build-to-suit markets are heating up in the Twin Cities and I see this as the prime time for us to execute market leading development projects that support our customers business growth plans.”
Collin Barr, president of Ryan's NorthCentral region, said Barranco "has established himself as a rock-solid developer who very creatively crafts unique development solutions for complicated projects."
Barranco joined Ryan in 2005, spearheading projects such as 222 Hennepin, a downtown Minneapolis mixed-use redevelopment with 286 luxury apartments and a Whole Foods market; the apartment portion within Ryan’s Downtown East project, and The Vintage, a 210-unit apartment complex anchored by a 39,000-square-foot Whole Foods market located in St. Paul.
