HONOLULU, Dec. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. (NYSE: ALEX) ("A&B" or "Company"), a premier Hawai'i commercial real estate company, today announced the appointment of Lance K. Parker, currently the Company's chief operating officer, to the additional position of president, effective January 1, 2023. Christopher J. Benjamin, currently president and chief executive officer, will remain the Company's CEO.

"The Board and I are pleased to recognize Lance's remarkable contributions to A&B and Hawai'i," said Benjamin. "Over the past 18 years, Lance has been instrumental in transforming A&B into one of Hawai'i's leading commercial real estate companies and the only real estate investment trust focused on and headquartered in the state. His deep Hawai'i roots and commitment to the local community will enable him to continue to grow A&B's real estate presence and strengthen our position as Partners for Hawai'i."

Parker is a 28-year veteran of the commercial real estate industry. He took the helm of A&B's real estate business in 2015 and has been A&B's chief operating officer since November 2021. He joined the Company in 2004 in an acquisition role and has held positions of steadily increasing responsibility throughout his career at A&B. Parker oversaw the highly successful migration of A&B's once-disparate mainland portfolio back to Hawai'i and the development of a fully-integrated, in-house property management and leasing capability.
