Global planning, engineering, architecture and interiors firm LEO A DALY has hired Mark Pratt as global hospitality practice leader. In this role, Pratt leads strategy and business development for the firm’s hospitality design group.
Pratt’s expertise covers all phases of planning, design and construction across the spectrum of hospitality, including luxury, full-service, boutique, resort and convention center hotels. He joins LEO A DALY from Walsh Group, where he was vice president, COE (Center of Excellence) leader and national director of hospitality.
He has been involved in hundreds of hospitality projects both in the U.S. and internationally. As a principal for VOA Associates, now Stantec, he was responsible for building the company’s commercial hospitality practice from $2.5 million in fees to over $18 million in five years.
Pratt succeeds Pat Miller, who over the last 21 years led LEO A DALY’s hospitality practice. Miller will continue to serve the firm as a senior hospitality advisor, consulting on strategy, brand and talent development and client services.
