The Lynd Co., a multifamily property management organization based in San Antonio, has appointed David Lynd as president & CEO, Ken Miller as chief operating officer and Matt Merritt as chief financial officer. The company’s leadership changes will be followed by the expansion of its third-party management footprint.

Prior to his new role, David Lynd served as chief operating officer at Lynd for 17 years. He has also assisted as lead partner in the development of the company’s first residential high-rise building, as well as in other milestones, such as the acquisition of the John Hancock Tower in 2014.

“I am excited to be back in the role of guiding our company which was previously, and continues to be, my life’s work,” said David Lynd. “With the departure of my ex-partners Sam Kasparek and Mike Lynd Jr., it was a natural move for me to assume the president & CEO role. In a very short time, I have assembled a highly-experienced team that is focused on returning Lynd to the core values that made us very successful in my previous 15-year tenure.”
