SEATTLE, Wash. – February 23, 2021 – Today, Pacific Program Management (PPM) announced the addition of three new members to its leadership team. The new additions deepen PPM’s commitment in three key national markets, including Washington, D.C., Seattle, and San Francisco, as it continues its national company expansion.
The Seattle-based commercial real estate program management firm has experienced rapid growth over the past year, in large part due to companies seeking new strategies for reimagining their workspaces as they plan their return to office.
Since the start of 2020, the firm has increased employment by 30% and expanded to two new geographic markets – New York City and Washington, D.C. According to senior leaders with the company, having experienced leadership that understands the unique needs of businesses in different markets is critical to delivering excellent client service. In addition, the company believes that clients across the country benefit when the company incorporates learnings from different markets to deliver strategic workspace solutions to meet the evolving needs of the workplace.
“I am excited to bring strong leadership to our expanding geographic markets of the caliber and talent these new additions bring to the team,” said CEO Clark Lindsay. “They bring unparalleled expertise in their discipline and in their regions that enhance our ability to continue delivering integrated, personalized solutions to our clients. The localized leadership they bring to our strategic expansion will also provide a more personalized level of service and connection for our clients and employees.”
