HOUSTON – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces Kevin Gummerus has joined the firm as Vice President of National Engineering Services. In this pivotal leadership role, Gummerus applies nearly two decades of strategic operational experience to drive a consistent, elevated level of Asset Services solutions. Embracing new and emerging technology as well as industry best practices, he will guide engineering teams across markets and property types to optimize building performance and enhance asset value.
“Within Asset Services and across the Transwestern companies, we recruit talented individuals who are leaders in their fields so we can continuously uncover ways to add value for our clients and partners,” said Andy Clagg, TRS Executive Managing Director of Asset Services. “Kevin’s boots-on-the-ground leadership style positions Transwestern as the best asset services provider in the business. He brings the engineering discipline, relationship-building acumen, global management expertise and innovative mindset that will ensure we develop the next generation of engineers to carry on Transwestern’s reputation for operational excellence.”
Before joining Transwestern, Gummerus spent close to 18 years at Hines, overseeing engineering services for properties across geographies and asset types. As Global Sr. Corporate Engineering Manager, he led engineering operations for more than 685 properties across 30 countries and 335 cities, encompassing over 2,000 facility and engineering team members. His extensive experience includes implementing risk management strategies, establishing large and complex OPEX and CAPEX budgets, and meeting energy and environmental objectives.
“I’m excited to contribute to Transwestern’s integrated, collaborative culture where I can combine my passion for the technical side of engineering with the relational aspect,” said Gummerus. “I enjoy mentoring and people development as much as building client relationships. This role allows me to focus on both, so Transwestern can continue evolving as an industry leader and help clients achieve their goals.”
Transwestern manages more than 900 projects totaling more than 232 million square feet across the U.S. Industry-leading technology, rigorous preventative maintenance programs, and continuous learning opportunities enable our engineers to serve as partners in delivering comprehensive Asset Services to clients.
