Transwestern has promoted Blake Williams to chief operating officer of its health-care and life sciences business, including commercial services, property development and investment management in the U.S. In this newly created role, Williams will coordinate business development, streamline project execution and ensure consistent service delivery for health-care clients nationally. He will be based in Houston and report to Transwestern Commercial Services President Tom Lawyer.

“We continue to be energized by the remarkable opportunities in the health-care real estate sector and are proud to have a strong team of leaders who approach every opportunity through a multi-disciplinary lens. Blake has made valuable contributions to our health-care practice by creating unique synergies between Transwestern’s real estate services, development and investment arms and we will continue to capitalize on that momentum as he takes a more hands-on role,” said Lawyer in prepared remarks.

Williams joined Transwestern in January 2018 as managing director. He assisted health-care clients with capital and development needs and investor clients with sourcing and executing health-care real estate investment strategies. At the end of last year, he was involved in Transwestern Investment Group’s acquisition of a 114,413-square-foot property in Houston, which will be repositioned as a medical office building.
