    Partner at ICO Real Estate Group


    Jian Torkan has been associated with ICO Investment Group since 1992, and with ICO Group of Companies since its formation in 2004. Initially, Mr. Torkan acted as in-house counsel for ICO, and eventually established himself as the company’s primary liaison to government entities in the Inland Empire, assuming responsibility for the management of all properties held by ICO in this Southern California region. As such, Mr. Torkan has established and developed ICO’s relationship with the County of San Bernardino and continues to establish new relationships with government entities in the Inland Empire to meet ICO’s goal of establishing itself as a premier landlord for governmental entities.

    In managing numerous retail and other projects held by various ICO entities, Mr. Torkan established many relationships in the real estate industry arena. Mr. Torkan’s successful execution of a wide array of development projects has resulted in more than four million square feet of real estate assets, with more than $100 million of these assets in San Bernardino, owned and managed by ICO, thereby providing a deep knowledge and credibility to the City of San Bernardino and its stakeholders. ICO’s development projects house such major national tenants as Tesco, Staples, Ethan Allen Furniture, and others.

    Jian Torkan received his Bachelors Degree in Economics/Business from UCLA in 1989 with College Honors. Thereafter, Mr. Torkan attended Southwestern University School of Law and earned his Juris Doctorate with high honors in 1992. Mr. Torkan is currently licensed to practice law in the State of California, the State of Nevada and the 9th Circuit Federal Court.

    By entering into a partnership with Renaissance Downtowns USA for the proposed master development of Downtown San Bernardino, Mr. Torkan and ICO are excited to expand their ventures to include large-scale, transformative downtown redevelopment by utilizing a social impact real estate development approach.
