Ware Malcomb Announces Promotions Amid Growth In Healthcare and Architecture Practices

March 22, 2019

Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced two promotions in the firm’s Irvine-based headquarters office: Mila Volkova has been promoted to Director, Healthcare Design and Greg Spon has been promoted to Director, Architecture. The promotions reflect the professional growth of both Volkova and Spon within Ware Malcomb, as well as the overall growth and success of the firm’s Healthcare Design and Architecture studios, respectively.

For over 30 years, Ware Malcomb’s Healthcare Design studio has completed projects ranging from ground up medical office buildings and tenant improvements to highly specialized OSHPD 1, 2 and 3 facilities. In her new role as Director, Volkova will lead the growth and management of the firm’s Irvine-based Healthcare Design team. Volkova joined Ware Malcomb in 2013 as a Project Manager and was promoted to Studio Manager in 2016. She is an active member of the healthcare design community and a thought leader in the space. Named one of 2018’s Women to Watch by Real Estate Forum, Volkova recently spoke about trends in healthcare and the impact they are having on the real estate market at the 2018 Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) national convention. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and is a U.S. Green Building Council LEED Green Associate.

“Mila brings extensive specialized healthcare knowledge to the Ware Malcomb team, and a wide range of design experience including skilled nursing, ambulatory surgery, behavioral health and acute care facilities,” said Michael Petersen, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s Health & Science practice. “Moreover, her energy and passion for success has earned the respect of her clients and colleagues alike.”

Ware Malcomb’s Irvine-based Architecture studio provides a wide range of services for office, advanced manufacturing, industrial, retail and hospitality projects. Spon joined the Ware Malcomb team in 2015 as a Senior Project Architect in the firm’s San Diego office. He played a significant role in the growth of that office and within two years was promoted to Studio Manager. In 2018, Spon moved to Ware Malcomb’s Irvine office as Studio Manager, Architecture to lead the Irvine team. In his new role as Director, Spon assumes the additional responsibilities of business development and overseeing all aspects of the team’s architectural and advanced manufacturing projects. A registered architect in California and New York, Spon is an active member of the NAIOP SoCal and Inland Empire chapters.

“Greg’s in-depth architectural experience and sound commercial real estate knowledge have helped him excel in both client management and business development,” said Tom Myers, Regional Vice President of Ware Malcomb. “We look forward to his continued success and contributions to the Ware Malcomb team in the years ahead.”
