CHICAGO-A key player in Crate & Barrel’s recent growth has been hired by Equity Office Properties, Inc., which already has grown into the largest US office REIT. Marsha C. Williams joins Equity Office Properties next month as chief financial officer.

Williams assumes a post vacated in September by Richard D. Kincaid upon his promotion to chief operating officer. While Tuesday’s announcement fills one key post, the firm continues to search for a successor to Timothy H. Callahan.

Part of Williams’ duties during her four years as chief financial officer at Crate & Barrel included serving on the retailer’s real estate committee. During her nine years at Amoco Corp., she also was a vice president and treasurer, which included overseeing debt financings as mergers and acquisitions.

“Marsha’s extensive capital markets expertise, coupled with her experience at Crate & Barrel, provides us with a key member of the executive management team that is shaping the next chapter of EOP,” says Equity Office Properties chairman, president and chief executive officer Sam Zell in a statement.
