Kimco Realty Corp. (NYSE:KIM) has promoted Ross Cooper to president and David Jamieson to chief operating officer.

With these appointments, Conor Flynn, who had held the dual role of president and chief executive officer, will remain Kimco’s CEO and a member of the company’s board of directors. The COO position has been open since it was last held by Conor Flynn before his elevation to CEO in 2016.

"These appointments are well deserved and, as part of our long-term succession planning efforts, ensure that we are equipped with the strong and dedicated leadership needed to guide the organization toward our 2020 Vision and beyond."

Cooper, who most recently served as executive vice president and chief investment officer for Kimco, joined the firm in 2006. He previously held the role of vice president of acquisitions, dispositions and asset management in Kimco’s Southern Region. Cooper will retain the title of CIO and continue to be responsible for leading the development and implementation of Kimco’s acquisition and disposition strategy. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan, and a Master’s degree in real estate from New York University.

Jamieson joined Kimco in 2007, and most recently served as executive vice president of asset management and operations, where his role has been to identify, develop and implement opportunistic value creation strategies that optimize the company’s portfolio performance, most notably by leading Kimco’s redevelopment and selective ground-up development efforts. He holds a bachelor's degree from Boston College and an MBA from Babson College.
