In 1972, Ware Malcomb was founded by Bill Ware and Bill Malcomb. Their philosophy of great design, excellent client service and relationship-focused business practices rings true today. The firm has a long history of leading design for commercial and corporate real estate.

In 1992, ownership of the firm transitioned to former CEO Lawrence R. Armstrong and retired President Jim Williams. Under their leadership, Ware Malcomb focused on design for long term real estate value, service, project type and geographic diversification.

Ware Malcomb continued to grow during the 2000s, adding Branding and Civil Engineering services and opening six new offices, including the first offices outside of the United States.

During the 2010s, the firm continued to expand its services to include Building Measurement, Workplace Strategy and Land Surveying. Thirteen new offices were established across the United States, Mexico and Canada signifying a period of rapid growth and success.

In 2020, Lawrence R. Armstrong transitioned to the role of Chairman after 28 years of serving as CEO.

Today, Ware Malcomb is led by CEO Ken Wink and President Jay Todisco, along with a team of talented design and business leaders with offices located across the Americas.
