Westcore Properties Hires Ryan Childs as Construction Manager


SAN DIEGO (October 11, 2016) – Westcore Properties, an active investor in industrial and office properties throughout the Western United States and beyond, has hired San Diego construction professional Ryan Childs in the role of construction manager.

Childs will support the firm’s focus on acquiring and transforming properties to achieve the highest and best use. He will work with Westcore’s acquisitions team to evaluate future development and existing buildings, assessing properties and providing estimated budgets. He will also assemble design and building teams to transform acquired properties, and he will oversee construction.

“With office and industrial properties in our sights all over the Western United States, having a construction management professional on our in-house advance team streamlines the acquisition process for us,” said Don Ankeny, president and CEO at Westcore Properties. “We benefit again during the construction phase from the management and directional continuity Ryan will provide between our many properties. We are pleased to welcome him on board.”

Previously, Childs has held preconstruction/estimating and project management roles at Pacific Building Group, ETC Building & Design and Bycor.

Childs is certified by the Design-Build Institute of America, the only organization “that defines, teaches and promotes best practices in design-build.”

A resident of Cardiff-By-The-Sea, California, Childs serves as president of the board for the newly-formed Cardiff-By-The-Sea Foundation, which devotes time and funds to beautification and education projects for the community.
