Ware Malcomb has named a new leader of its architecture practice in New Jersey and New York.
The design firm, which has a location in Woodbridge, announced this week that it has promoted Edward Mayer to director of architecture for the New Jersey and New York offices. In the new role, he is responsible for the overall leadership, growth and management of the architecture studio in the New Jersey and New York offices and manages select projects in the tristate area and beyond.
“Ed has demonstrated tremendous talent combined with a great attitude, both of which have enabled him to flourish at Ware Malcomb as the firm has continued to expand in the region,” said Michael Bennett, principal with the firm. “We are excited to see Ed take this leadership role in the region and look forward to his continued success.”
Mayer joined Ware Malcomb in 2016 as studio manager, architecture, bringing more than 25 years of architectural and leadership experience to the firm’s New Jersey office. He has since worked across the region on significant projects in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New York and Maryland, including three multistory distribution buildings as well as large land planning assignments.
He is a licensed architect in New Jersey and New York and holds a bachelor’s in architecture from the University of Notre Dame. Mayer is also certified as a LEED Green Associate and is an active member of NAIOP and IOREBA, representing Ware Malcomb at industry events throughout the region.
