design:retail Names Gensler’s Gatti a “Retail Design Influencer”
NEW YORK – Michael Gatti, a principal in Gensler’s New York office and leader of the Northeast retail practice, is one of 10 “Retail Design Influencers” honored by design:retail magazine. This recognition is part of design:retail’s 2015 Portfolio Awards program.
Industry influencers are determined by an annual reader survey. This group includes recognized leaders, creatives and experts who carve out new paths through their work and impact the retail design industry through passion and creativity.
The Portfolio Award winners were published in design:retail magazine’s September issue. The winners also attended the design:retail forum in Portland, Ore., an exclusive dinner that celebrates 200 industry peers.
design:retail requested that award winners limit their acceptance speech to a single tweet. Michael tweeted: “Honored to be named retail design influencer. Thanks @designretailmag + colleagues and clients who keep raising the bar.”
Michael is a registered architect in nine states with a portfolio of work that includes Tiffany, Cartier, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and El Palacio de Hierro, along with other brands that span the luxury retail spectrum.
