She will report directly to the firm's Director of Construction and Development, Jon Wainwright.
"I am extremely excited to grow this newly created position within CP Group," Blake said. "The office sector is continuing to rebound following the pandemic, but companies are still taking stock of the many components needed to accommodate the changes in their business and workforce. I look forward to collaborating with our tenants as they enter a new chapter at our buildings and ensuring they have access to top-of-the-line office space and innovative solutions that will contribute to flexibility and create a safe, healthy, and productive environment for their colleagues."
