New York, NY (December 2, 2011)—The Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG) has named three team members—Nancy Flannery, Romina Larregina and Joshua Morris—as partners in the firm.
“This has been a watershed year for the Walters-Storyk Design Group,” notes company co-principal Beth Walters. “We are extremely fortunate to maintain a project schedule that doubles as a magnet for attracting high-end assignments. And we are fully aware of the contributions our associates make to our ongoing success. In recognition of the invaluable roles they play in our efficiency, bottom line and esprit de corps, three key team members—CFO Nancy Flannery, a 21-year WSDG veteran; and Project Managers, Romina Larregina (10 years) and Joshua Morris (7 years)—have been named partners in our growing firm.”
Completion of Ann Mincieli’s Jungle City Studios; a major new Oven Studio complex for Alicia Keys; and Village Studios, a production complex in Guangzhou, China; coupled with a series of high-end personal studios, including Cynthia Daniels’ MonkMusic in East Hampton; and elegant project studios in Connecticut and Vermont illustrate continuing strength in both the home and facility for hire sectors.
On the domestic education front, WSDG completed five additions to The Art Institutes’ ongoing national teaching studio expansion program (20 and counting). The firm is also developing a number of technology rooms for the Berklee College of Music’s teaching studio expansion, a 12-story building in Boston and a major new international campus in Valencia, Spain (spring, 2012). WSDG Latin America recently completed multiple high-technology suites for the Artes Building, a seven-story addition to The Vatican’s Javeriana University in Bogota, Colombia.
“We are extremely proud to maintain this demanding international schedule, and that our new offices in Spain and Germany are now contributing to our whirlwind of worldwide activity,” company co-principal John Storyk comments. “With 40+ years of experience and 3,000+ projects in our portfolio, we have also built a world-class cadre of designers, project managers and systems installation experts. Every assignment presents its own idiosyncratic challenges and rewards. Our system of pooling the creative design, system integration and project management assets of all our offices is a textbook example of international cooperation. For us, the art of collaboration is a key element of our design work, and we are privileged to be associated with so many high-profile clients.”
