Gensler has named a director of its newly created consulting practice in New Jersey.
The global architecture, design and planning firm announced last week that it has tapped Wendy Andrew-Doele, a veteran of the company, to oversee the consulting studio in its Morristown office. As studio director, she oversees workplace strategy, change management and the design, delivery and deployment of strategic guidelines for clients in the financial services, technology, hospitality and retail industries.
Andrew-Doele boasts 20 years of experience with Gensler, including 18 in its New York office. The firm said she was integral in establishing what is now its fifth consulting studio, which will be all the more important to tenants in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
“The ‘new normal’ is still being defined and future brings much uncertainty,” Andrew-Doele said. “Our mission is to bring the best ideas, data and design together to help our clients tackle their unique challenges near term while staying flexible for the long term.”
Gensler said the studio will serve clients that are rethinking and planning their workplace or building, along with retailers that are planning re-entry. Broadly speaking, Andrew-Doele noted that the Morristown location brings “a core set of services offered by Gensler’s consulting practice area that’s more bespoke to the New Jersey market, while tapping into our cross industry knowledge and global expertise.”
Her clients include companies such as Bank of America, IBM and ADP.
