GETTYS Signs More New Projects in the First Half of 2012 as Compared to Same Time Last Year and Announces Promotions in Four Offices

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - In what may be seen as an upturn in the U.S. economy, award winning hospitality interior design, procurement, and brand design firm GETTYS has signed many new projects representing a significant increase in new contracts year-on-year.

Commenting on industry growth, GETTYS' President/COO Andrew Fay said: "We have seen a more positive outlook from key industry brands as well as the independents. The signing of many new contracts contradicts the general view that the economy is flat. We have many more hospitality design contracts under negotiation in the U.S. and around the globe, and we remain very positive about the rest of 2012 and 2013."

GETTYS is currently working on projects in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United States, Macau, Mexico, Hong Kong, China, Costa Rica and Colombia. 

"With this project growth, we are extremely pleased to be hiring new team members and promoting members of the GETTYS team around the world," said Fay. "After several years of industry stagnation, hiring freezes and projects being put on hold, it is exciting to see real growth in the industry resulting in quality projects being awarded to us around the world."
