SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading global technology company LeEco appointed Dan Poritzky as Vice President of Real Estate and Facilities for North America.

Poritzky is no stranger to Silicon Valley real estate, having worked in the Bay Area for over 17 years for Prologis, Eastdil, Hines, and MWest Properties. In his current role, Poritzky will be responsible for land development, leasing and workplace services.
"As we bring our open, integrated ecosystem to life in the U.S., we've been hiring the best talent across many industries," said Richard Ren, President of LeEco North America. "Dan's experience is beneficial to helping us realize our vision for an Eco City, a place where our employees and innovation can thrive and the community is welcome."

"Our goal is to build a world-class campus where employees can innovate and collaborate," said Poritzky. "A place that sets the standard for environmental performance and reflects our open approach by providing a place for the community to interact and have fun."
Prior to joining LeEco, Poritzky served as Managing Director with MWest Properties, a joint venture between DivcoWest and TPG Real Estate. His experience 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.
