TPG Architecture, an award-winning New York City-based architecture and design firm, is pleased to announce the promotion of Ken Tracey to Managing Executive. Ken has been with TPG since 2011, and has cultivated an impressive career over the past 25 years. In his new role, he will work alongside the current distinguished group of managing executives and leadership to aid in the firm’s continued expansion.
“During my time with TPG Architecture, I’ve been able to shape my career path and utilize the valuable guidance given to me along the way,” says Ken Tracey. “I see this next step as an exciting opportunity, and I look forward to increasing my voice and visibility among the partnership.”
After receiving his Bachelor of Architecture from the Catholic University of America, Ken turned to the Greater New York City Area to pursue and refine his passions within the field. Early on, he found himself in project management roles working with notable firms, including Sargenti, IA Interior Architects, and Corgan Associates. With each experience, he discovered that spearheading teams, solving problems, and building client relationships came naturally.
Ken has proven himself to be a respected team leader, mentor, and visionary. His contributions have led him to work on many prestigious projects for clients including Barclays, Polen Capital, and Tommy John. Most notably, he oversaw TPG’s efforts on IEX Group’s relocation to 3 WTC. As a high point in Ken’s career, the transformative project received the CoreNet Award for Project of the Year in 2019.
Following Ken’s success, the firm asked him to serve as the Director for a new Workplace and Landlord Services Studio that launched in the fall of 2019. Under his leadership, TPG expanded its relationships with several real estate owners and developers throughout the city, including Silverstein Properties, MHP, Vanbarton Group, and the Durst Organization. With his clients, Ken is viewed as an experienced professional and trusted advisor.
“Ken has an innate feel for good business, client care, relationships, mentorship, and integrity,” says Thomas Hughes, Managing Executive at TPG Architecture. “I am immensely proud and happy for him, and welcome him to the partnership.”
