South Florida-based commercial real estate developer and owner Crocker Partners has hired infectious disease expert Dr. Walter Okoroanyanwu as Director of Environmental Health. In this position, Okoroanyanwu will be responsible for applying his extensive experience in healthcare operations and infectious disease to develop a program that will ensure that Crocker’s properties meet high standards for safety and sustainability.
Although the role was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Crocker expects that the position will promote healthier indoor environments in its properties on a permanent basis. Going forward, Dr. Okoroanyanwu plans to develop a comprehensive environmental health, sustainability and wellness program to be implemented across the firm’s 11 million-square-foot portfolio.
“This is an unprecedented partnership of the commercial real estate and the medical community, said Angelo Bianco, managing partner at Crocker Partners. “As office property owners and developers, there is only so much we can definitively know about the best methods to protect our tenants, visitors, and employees from COVID-19 and we knew that we needed that expertise as a long-term part of our organization.”
