Transwestern named Paul Wittorf as executive managing partner, market leader for the company’s North Texas operations, based in Dallas.
He also has been appointed to Transwestern’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors. Jack Eimer, Transwestern’s current market leader, will shift to a national leadership role as executive managing partner.
Wittorf has been one of Transwestern’s top producers nationally, with extensive industry knowledge and proven success serving both landlords and tenants. Since joining Transwestern’s Houston office in 2000, Wittorf has leased and marketed office buildings and new development opportunities for clients in every major submarket in the city, including transactions for energy companies, engineering and construction firms, manufacturers, law firms and others. Earlier in his career, he focused on tenant representation for clients in a variety of industries.
“Having worked with Paul for many years, I am confident his real estate expertise, relationships and passion for client service will enable us to execute dynamic growth plans that build on the strong foundation of our current operations in North Texas,” said Chip Clarke, president | Americas, in a news release. “During his tenure with Transwestern, he has demonstrated strategic thinking, strong leadership capabilities and a superb ability to build long-lasting client relationships.”
Wittorf has been named to Real Estate Forum magazine’s “Forty under 40” list and recognized as a “Heavy Hitter” by the Houston Business Journal and a “Commercial Real Estate Rising Star” by Red News. He holds a bachelor of business administration in real estate from Baylor University.
“I joined Transwestern because of its collaborative culture and tradition of providing the highest standard of client service – both of which fuel growth opportunities,” said Wittorf. “This is an exciting time for the company, and I look forward to working alongside my new teammates in North Texas.”
Wittorf and Eimer will jointly transition their roles by July 1, 2016. Eimer will continue to serve on the firm’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors, in addition to his new senior role targeting major growth initiatives.
Transwestern’s North Texas operations consist of 325 team members, including 88 transaction professionals with primary offices in Dallas, Fort Worth and Midland.
