Transwestern has appointed John Lopez as vice president of its Healthcare Advisory Services team in Atlanta.

Lopez will be working alongside Senior Vice President Steve Hall and will be responsible for the oversight and execution of medical real estate investment and leasing for clients across the southeast. Lopez has more than 30 years of commercial and healthcare advisory experience and has completed more than $100 million in transactions over the past five years.

Prior to joining Transwestern, Lopez was the regional director of healthcare leasing for the east and midwest regions at HealthCare REIT, now known as Welltower.

“Following a historical level of demand for medical office space in Atlanta in 2017 at nearly 640,000 square feet, trend lines point to sustained growth in the market during the next 18 to 24 months,” Hall said in a prepared statement. “Last year, more than 700,000 square feet of new development was announced in Atlanta, 62 percent of which is already leased. With rising demand and rents increasing 3 percent year over year, now is the perfect time to bolster our Healthcare Advisory Services team as medical office demand continues to ramp up.”
