Mike Seyle, president and CEO of design firm WATG will continue to lead the company for another five years as it charts its expansion strategy into the Middle East and Africa region.
WATG Chairman and senior vice president Dave Moore stated: “Over the past five years, Mike has led us through a challenging period of change and we are now seeing the positive upside of this process in terms of company growth to double-digit profitability. We need him to continue what he started as we move into new territories and new client services”.
As part of WATG’s expansion plans in the Middle East and Africa, Seyle will relocate with his family to London to be closer to the region . “We have ambitious growth plans for Africa and the Middle East, alongside our ongoing success stories in Asia, Turkey and Russia. Having the CEO sitting in London, close to these markets is simply common sense!” stated Muriel Muirden, vice president of strategy.
