Adam is a Design Architect with over 25 years’ experience, having previously worked for BDP and Benoy. He will be heading up and growing the design side of DMWR across the Group. Adam will be based in the London office.
“It is wonderful to announce the promotions of both Paolo and Chris in recognition of the hard work and commitment they have both made to the Practice.
