Full-service architecture, branding, interior and planning firm KTGY has named Ben Seager, AIA, LEED AP as a principal and shareholder and Lisa Simeone to its board of directors.

“Lisa and Ben represent the future of KTGY,” said Tricia Esser, CEO of KTGY. “They are tenacious and forward-thinking leaders who understand how to translate community desires and client needs into thoughtful designs.”

For nearly 18 years, Seager has been an integral part of KTGY, most recently serving as an associate principal. He has been involved in the design, planning and entitlement of a wide variety of residential, mixed-use and senior housing communities nationwide for nearly 20 years. He is responsible for setting project direction during conceptual site planning, overseeing schematic design and coordinating with the technical team during the design development and construction document phases to ensure the design vision is realized.

Simeone’s appointment comes on the heels of KTGY’s acquisition of Simeone Deary Design Group, the interior design firm she co-founded with Gina Deary in 2002. In 2021, with a collective vision to create a fully integrated architecture, branding, interiors, and planning practice, Simeone Deary joined forces with KTGY. With more than 30 years of experience positioning lifestyle and hospitality brands in the global marketplace, Simeone is renowned worldwide for delivering high-end luxury and forward-thinking authenticity through experiential design.
