People

PORTMAN professionals are a diverse group of talented people from many countries and cultures, each chosen for his or her talent, expertise, and commitment to the highest standards of quality in design and service.

Our people are our most powerful asset. Individual strengths support teamwork. The team, in turn, nurtures individual strengths. The result is irrepressible creativity. It is our people who manifest ideas and turn visions into reality.

Our culture and our process uphold our design philosophy. Every aspect of the project is equally important – from the overall concept to the design of the smallest details, and from the first plan to the final punch list. Each person plays an important role and is valued for their contributions.
