Dan Poritzky is Vice President of Real Estate Development, Head of Real Estate and Facilities, LeEco North America. Responsible for land development, leasing and workplace services, Dan leads the development for the 3.1 million-square-foot Santa Clara property acquired from Yahoo! for the company’s upcoming EcoCity campus.
Dan is no stranger to Silicon Valley real estate, having worked in the Bay Area for more than 17 years for some of the most dynamic players in the region’s real estate market.
Prior to joining LeEco, Dan served as managing director with MWest Properties, a joint venture between DivcoWest and TPG Real Estate. His experience also includes 7 years at Hines, the majority of which was spent on leasing and marketing deals in the Silicon Valley region, as well as tenures at Prologis and Eastdil.
“I’m excited to lead LeEco’s Real Estate Development and Facilities Team, as we build and manage innovative workplaces for creative people.”
During the course of his career, Dan has worked with several of the largest tech companies in Silicon Valley. With extensive experience on the Landlord/Developer side, he has acquired, managed, leased, and sold over $10 billion in assets, with the vast majority located in Northern California.
One of Dan’s primary priorities at LeEco is the development of its EcoCity campus. Last July, the company purchased 3.1 million square feet of entitled land from Yahoo! to build the future home of LeEco’s global headquarters. The space was previously approved for 13 buildings, enough to accommodate approximately 12,000 employees.
EcoCity’s mission is to support and inspire staff members to innovate, while offering the public a communal gathering place to enjoy live music, play sports and collaborate with LeEco to build the next generation of products. Dan is responsible for ensuring this open EcoCity has a strong foundation to bring it to life.
