Will Trakas named to Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Centurions Leadership Fall 2019 - 2021 Class

Will Trakas, AIA, Associate, was named a member of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Centurions Leadership Program for the Fall cohort. Will joins fellow emerging Kansas City leaders of the Fall 2019 - 2021 Centurions Class in a two-year program focused on education, leadership and service in the Kansas City community.

“Will truly represents our values through his work at BNIM,” said Maria Maffry, BNIM Principal, Centurions Class of 2000, “His engaging and thoughtful leadership is demonstrated in his commitment to his studio members, clients, and community.”

As an Architect in BNIM’s Kansas City office, Will has contributed to a number of the firm’s U.S. Department of State projects, including those in Uganda, Eritrea, Austria, Switzerland, and most recently Mauritania, learning the rigorous design constraints for these projects with an eye towards thoughtful problem-solving for design issues large and small. He has also contributed to several local efforts, including Winnetonka and North Kansas City high schools. Will has an unhindered willingness to lead in any capacity, and he is always up for a design conversation after testing some ideas. His spirit is contagious in the office, and he is a great BNIM ambassador outside the office.
