    Global destination design firm WATG is pleased to announce that Mike Seyle, President and CEO, has accepted the Board of Directors’ request to extend his leadership term for another five years. 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 these dynamic and growing markets. The London office was opened in 1991 and is one of WATG’s fastest growing operations. “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. Seyle added “We have important decisions to make to sustain our current growth trend. This relocation, will allow me to travel frequently to our emerging markets and to build important relationships in these regions”.
