William Michael

Steering Chair

Design creative with over 23 years experience in both commercial and residential markets, but found my true passion to be in Hospitality Design. Evolving over the years to a Senior Level Lead Hospitality Designer I developed & promoted a creative VISION to diverse groups of clients and Brands alike. My typical day involved many skill sets including networking, marketing, leadership, collaboration, production and management of the design solution as well as the specification, procurement and installation of interior architectural finish & furnishing packages that successfully REVEAL themselves in an extensive repertoire of projects that have earned favorable accolades including two NEWH Top ID awards as well as provided valuable experiences and built lasting relationships along the journey. More recently I sought change and new challenges in a career redirection within the A&D industry as an Account Executive with MDC Interior Solutions covering Pittsburgh, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia, which has proven to be equally fulfilling in different ways.

Sales professional with over 23 years of experience both commercially & residentially with 10 years of experience focused on the flooring industry. I obtained my Master of Science in Marketing and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Robert Morris University in Moon Township, PA. I started my career as a Property Manager for an apartment association and soon found my way to selling apartment advertising for Homes & Land magazine, selling landscaping contracts for JML Landscape, sold plumbing and excavation services in Chicago, Illinois for Roto Rooter and currently creating custom carpets for Durkan Hospitality. I’ve chaired many committees throughout my tenure and have held several Board positions. I am very excited for the opportunity to serve NEWH, Pittsburgh in being responsible for Social Media and assisting with planning local events for our chapter.
