Transwestern names new East region president for Commercial Services

Texas-based national real estate firm Transwestern has named a new president for its Commercial Services’ East region, which includes New Jersey operations, it announced Thursday.

Bruce Ford, who had been president of the Southeast region, is expanding his oversight under the company’s new three-region system. In addition to New Jersey, the new East region includes New York, as well as the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Virginia.

In the region, Ford will oversee operations, client service delivery and business development for the commercial real estate services business.

“Transwestern is committed to exceeding clients’ expectations for consistency, innovation and cost savings, so it makes good sense to view our commercial services offerings through a wider lens,” Tom Lawyer, president of Transwestern Commercial Services, said in a prepared statement. “Bruce’s business acumen and proven ability to drive results make him a natural fit for this new role. We are confident his strong leadership will further collaboration, spark creativity and ultimately grow market share in some of the country’s most vibrant multifaceted markets.”

Ford has been with Transwestern for 10 years, working in a variety of business lines and management roles.

“Transwestern’s ability to attract and retain top talent, coupled with our intense focus on service delivery have established Transwestern as a leader in the industry,” he said in a statement. “It is an honor to work alongside an inspiring leadership team with a clear vision — one aimed at expanding opportunities for our team members and challenging each of us to think differently about how we work together to add value for our clients.”
