Singapore office relocated
As part of WATG’s vision to further penetrate the Asia market, the hospitality design firm will be moving senior designers from its Seattle office to its newly relocated Singapore offices.
Bill Reed, vice president, Tom Williams, associate vice president, and several designers from Seattle will be relocating to Singapore. The Seattle office will subsequently close this summer.
Since joining WATG in 1984, Bill Reed has contributed to the design and success of various hospitality, leisure, and mixed-use projects around the world, including Al Badia Golf Clubhouse by InterContinental at Dubai Festival City, Shangri-La’s Baar Al Jissah Resort & Spa in Oman, Hilton Mauritius Resort & Spa, the Ayana Resort and Spa in Bali, Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village, California and The Ritz-Carlton in Palm Beach, Florida.
Tom Williams has over 15 years of design experience and a background in architecture, hospitality management, and graphic design. Tom is a seasoned hospitality industry leader and has worked extensively in Asia, including China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Korea, and Taiwan.
“With a significant portion of WATG’s portfolio in Asia, the Singapore office has been thriving and is an excellent platform for us to recruit innovative designers and more effectively deliver projects to our clients,” said Dave Moore, senior vice president and managing director of the office. “We are excited for our new, open work environment that will foster collaboration and integrated design solutions.”
