George Bergman Promoted to President of BWA

Bergman, Walls Associates, Ltd. Architects announced that George Bergman AIA has been elected president for both domestic and Asian operations, replacing company principal Scott Walls, who retired April 2.

Walls will remain a director and will continue to market BWA as Bergman, the son of company Chairman Joel Bergman, leads the firm. BWA has done extensive work in the gaming industry.

Bergman, who holds a master’s degree in economics from Soka University in Tokyo, Japan, has expanded the firm’s work in Asia. Often saying that the U.S. economic future is tied to Asia, he has established BWA offices in Vietnam and the Philippines, and is scouting an office location in China.

Bergman, 45, also was the architect for prominent gaming  projects including the mega-suites at Caesars Augustus Tower, the Pure and LAX nightclubs and the Resorts Atlantic City high-rise addition.
