Phillips Edison & Company, an internally-managed real estate investment trust that invests in grocery-anchored shopping centers, has hired Kevin McCann to serve as chief information officer.
McCann joins Phillips Edison from IRC Retail Centers, an owner and manager of neighborhood retail centers, where he held the position of chief information officer and vice president since 2015. Phillips Edison said that during his tenure at IRC, he created and developed the company’s technology department, set technology goals and migrated all system applications from Inland Real Estate Group to the newly spun-off IRC Retail Centers.
“Kevin is a proven talent whose expertise has led to the development and implementation of innovative tech solutions that have generated significant, measurable results,” said Bob Myers, chief operating officer at Phillips Edison. “We expect Kevin’s fresh perspectives and demonstrated leadership skills will add tremendous value to our award-winning IT team as they work with senior management to identify opportunities to further enhance productivity, performance and service across the organization.”
McCann spent nine years at Inland Real Estate Group prior to IRC’s spin-off, most recently serving as director of information technology. In this role, he was responsible for overseeing a team of 35 professionals in the development and implementation of Inland’s technology strategy. Prior to joining Inland, McCann held technology services roles at Deloitte Consulting.
He holds a bachelor’s degree from Loras College, a Master of Business Administration from Loyola University, and is a certified public accountant.
