Michael Winstanley Named CEO of Mancini Duffy

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 5, 2010) -  Michael Winstanley, AIA, AICP principal in New York City-based Mancini Duffy and Managing Principal of Mancini Duffy Winstanley, the firm's Washington, DC office, has been named CEO of the firm, effective immediately. He joins Anthony P. Schirripa, FAIA, Chairman, and Dina Frank, AIA, IIDA, President, on the newly formed Management Committee, which oversees day-to-day operations of the firm.

"The key element in our strategic plan has always been the expansion of Mancini Duffy's scope and reach, making it a highly diversified, full-service firm," Schirripa explains. "Michael's appointment reflects our commitment to offer planning, architecture, interiors, workplace strategy, and graphic and wayfinding design services to clients in the commercial, retail, academic, and public sectors, not only throughout the U.S., but globally, through our alliances with International Partners in Design (IPID)."

Winstanley, who merged his Washington, DC-based practice, Michael Winstanley Architects Planners with Mancini Duffy in 2009, is particularly well-known for his large scale planning and architectural accomplishments, especially in the commercial and academic sectors. "I'm very excited to be taking on this new role," he says. "My collaboration with Tony and Dina seems to me the ideal means for maintaining the firm's long-standing and distinguished interiors practice, building up the nascent -- and already award-winning -- architecture practice, and continuing to look for new initiatives, stronger collaborations, and wider-ranging relationships."

While Mancini Duffy will remain headquartered in New York, Winstanley will continue to direct the Washington, DC office, as well as assume the overall leadership of the firm's architectural and planning services. Dina Frank holds a similar position with regard to the New York office and the interiors practice.

In addition to continuing to serve as Chairman, providing strategic vision for the firm's future, Schirripa will emphasize outreach on Mancini Duffy's behalf, building on his strong relationships with clients and with the city's leadership, his position on the Board of the New York Building Congress and his prominence as President of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter.

Founded almost 90 years ago, Mancini Duffy has offices in New York City, Washington, D.C., Connecticut, and New Jersey. Also, as a member of IPID, International Partners in Design, Mancini Duffy serves the diverse needs of its expanding multi-national client base across the U.S. and in Great Britain, Europe, East Asia and Australia.
