PPM Focuses on Biz Development with Hiring of Mark Wanic
For the first time in its 12-year history, Seattle-based Pacific Program Management (PPM) hired a new senior leadership professional dedicated to customer relationships and business development. Mark Wanic recently joined PPM as chief customer solutions officer responsible for growing PPM’s client depth and diversity at an enterprise level.
“Mark is joining our senior leadership team at a critical time in our evolution as a company,” said Clark Lindsay, PPM CEO. “As PPM strategically expands into additional key markets across the country and beyond, his proven sales and marketing acumen, deep bench of national commercial real estate experience, and strong relationships in both the corporate world and commercial real estate sector will help amplify our value for organizations seeking opportunities to unlock the potential of their workspace.”
Wanic brings nearly 30 years of experience in recruiting, organizing and leading diverse global organizations and teams. His expertise has resulted in elevated client service, talent attraction and retention, and driving business growth. Immediately prior to joining PPM, Wanic was the chief revenue officer at Fischer & Company in Dallas. During his tenure, he secured large corporate accounts and increased overall technology revenue. Wanic has also held executive leadership positions at Paradigm Tax Group, Cushman & Wakefield, Lucent Technologies and AT&T. During his time at Lucent, he led business development across the U.S., Asia and Europe including three years in the Netherlands as international real estate director.
“The commercial real estate industry is at the nexus of a pivotal moment in the changing culture of how and where people work, and PPM has the expertise and experience to help develop strategies for understanding and maximizing that changing culture,” said Wanic.
