Design firm Ware Malcomb on June 2 announced Bill Sotomayor was promoted to principal in the New York office.
In this position, Sotomayor is responsible for the overall leadership and growth of the New York office, as well as regional leadership of the interiors practice in the Northeast.
Sotomayor joined Ware Malcomb in 2014, when he opened the firm’s New York office as regional director, and has led the office’s growth with his expansive regional knowledge and business development acumen. He continues to successfully foster and expand client relationships and has been a key contributor to the success of the New York office, as well as the region.
“Bill has led the New York office’s impressive growth, and we look forward to his continued success in New York and leading the interiors practice across the Northeast,” said Kenneth Wink, chief executive officer of Ware Malcomb. “His 35-plus years of industry knowledge and dedication to Ware Malcomb’s vision makes him a tremendous asset to the company.”
Prior to Ware, Sotomayor ran his own company, providing architectural and interior design services to corporate, retail, publishing, media and law firm clients. He expanded his New York City-based firm to a second location in New Jersey, and later sold and merged with a large architectural design firm.
Sotomayor is a founding member of the Knights of York, a New York City-based nonprofit organization of devoted business leaders helping children in need. He is also a past chairman and board member of the National Hispanic Business Group and a member of CoreNet Global.
