HOUSTON, TX - PM Realty Group (PMRG), a national, full-service commercial real estate firm, today announced that John Spafford has been promoted to Executive Vice President, Director of Leasing for the firm's Houston headquarters office. In this role, Mr. Spafford will oversee PMRG's Houston leasing and marketing initiatives for a portfolio consisting of over 12 million square feet of office space located in 90 buildings throughout Houston.
