Ware Malcomb Elevates Four to Practice Leader Roles

Ware Malcomb, an international design firm headquartered in Irvine, has appointed four senior team members to a newly created leadership role called “practice leader” to further diversify business and support dedicated market-specific capabilities across the Americas: Luciana Arim for Science & Technology; Kate Lyle for Industrial Cold & Food; Anthony Simon for Retail; and Charles Swanson for Multifamily. 

“Elevating practice leaders represents a natural evolution of our overall leadership structure that strengthens our internal teams and further diversifies our business in these disciplines in all Ware Malcomb offices,” said EVP Matt Brady. “Our practice leaders help our offices provide streamlined delivery of services and firmwide resources for these types of projects.”

Practice leader, director, science & technology, based in Pleasanton, Arim is responsible for Ware Malcomb’s growing S&T practice. Irvine-based Lyle is practice leader, director, Industrial Cold & Food. Simon is practice leader, director, retail, based in New York City. Chicagoland-based Swanson is practice leader, director, multifamily.
