Clay brings over 40 years of industry experience in hospitality design and delivery around the globe. His successful management approach across architecture, interior design, and construction management has resulted in award-winning projects for clients and brands such as Hyatt, Marriott, IHG and MGM Mirage. The Maike Centre and Grand Hyatt Hotel in Xi’an, China, was given the Award of Excellence in 2020 by the CTBUH (Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat).
“As the hospitality and mixed-use sectors are building steam across the nation, I am very excited to be joining a design-forward firm with such a dynamic team of professionals,” says Clay Markham.
Angie, located in Chicago, has an extensive background in real estate, architecture, and design, in addition to her tenure in interior design. This has greatly influenced her approach and track record for developing high-impact partnerships and new opportunities for client success. She will lead local and nationwide business development efforts for hospitality, mixed-use, multifamily, and entertainment district projects in her new role. She specializes in helping developers, design firms, and clients form unique partnerships to enhance their cities.
“I am elated to join RATIO’s team. I specialize in creating connections between people, capital, and cities, and I see a lot of potential for RATIO to bring new ideas and unique design solutions to major areas across the country,” says Angie Wallin.
