//3877 names Ryan Petyak partner alongside company promotions

//3877 has revealed that Senior Associate Ryan Petyak has been promoted to partner alongside the firm’s cofounders, David Tracz and David Shove-Brown. The announcement comes amid a wider company initiative, including the promotions of Senior Associates/Visionaries Molly Forman, Sam Forman, Lesley Golenor and Meghan Scott as well as Associates/Pioneers Ethan Bingeman and Matt Vargas. The refreshed structure further develops the firm’s company culture by focusing on cultivating leadership and advancement opportunities—establishing a framework for employees to understand their roles within the firm while simultaneously providing a roadmap for their growth internally, according to the firm.

“We’re beyond proud of our team’s endless commitment, passion, and drive in every facet of their work, in and out of the office,” said Shove-Brown. “As we nurture future industry leaders within our organization, it becomes crucial to create new opportunities for continued growth, encouraging mentorship and ongoing education at every level of our firm. These promotions equally reflect our team’s design expertise and their unwavering investment in //3877’s evolution.”

As the first employee promoted to partner since //3877’s inception in 2011, Petyak will aid in the firm’s continued expansion, both internally and externally. Petyak, who has been a member of the team since 2013, will work closely with each employee in a human resources capacity, further enriching the firm’s exemplary company culture while also overseeing a robust project portfolio. Additionally, Petyak will play a pivotal business development role, creating proposals to enhance the team’s ever-expanding footprint across the hospitality, fitness and residential verticals.

“Ryan’s elevation to partner was a natural progression given his undeniable contribution to the success of our team,” said Tracz. “In approaching this decision, we took an introspective look at our own capital, proactively identifying areas that needed additional support. We knew instantly that Ryan expertly balances our partnership. As we look to the future of our company, we want to continue our focus on strategically developing our growth internally, investing in the continued success of our team for years to come.”

With no plans of slowing down in sight, //3877 continues to facilitate opportunities for internal advancement and recruitment. The enhanced structure furthers the group’s mission to increase accessibility to mentorship and continual education by establishing clear resources for individuals to seek out guidance within the firm. Petyak’s promotion provides a prime example of the system in action; after joining //3877 early on in his career, Petyak’s role evolved into one that now sets the course of the team’s direction for the future, a sentiment they invest in the trajectory of each employee. The structure, further enhanced by titles such as “Visionary,” Pioneer,” and “Innovator” allows employees to feel empowered to shape their careers through open-ended steps along the architecture and design journey.

“It’s incredibly meaningful to have witnessed our growth for over ten years and to now offer leadership input towards our company roadmap for the years ahead,” said Petyak. “Our strong project portfolio and team skill sets are representative of Tracz and Shove-Brown’s collective dedication to the advancement of our firm. In this role, I’m thrilled to be even more hands-on in giving guidance to our current momentum and helping to form a vision for the firm’s future.”
