Chunsheh Teo Promotion
Chunsheh Teo Promoted to Managing Director of Southeast Asia
Continuing to provide excellent service to our clients in Southeast Asia, smdp studio has promoted Chunsheh Teo to Managing Director of the region. Chunsheh has recently relocated from the smdp headquarters in Chicago to lead the team of dedicated design and technical professionals. Chunsheh’s intimate understanding of architecture on society and his familiarity with development in the asian market helps strengthen the international practice of smdp.
Regarding the move, Chunsheh commented, “I am delighted that smdp will be strengthening its presence in Asia. It is crucial to maintain a presence in the region as it continues to experience tremendous growth and potential. Locating in Kuala Lumpur, a rapidly maturing world class city positions smdp to provide superb design services with local connectivity not only locally, but to surrounding markets.”
Notable project wins and enhanced client relationships in recent months have driven this move and encouraged smdp to put down firmer roots in the region. Smdp will continue to develop in-country services and client relationships. This is an exciting time for smdp studio, currently celebrating 25 years of operations in Asia.
Teo added, “We’re very excited about working in a market that is so dynamic and responsive to good design.” With a permanent presence in Malaysia, smdp will be using the studio as a second base in Asia (with offices already in Shanghai). Chunsheh and his team, in collaboration with the Chicago, IL headquarters, aim to continue their long history of collaboration and award winning design.
