Posted on 06.15.18

WER Architects/Planners is pleased to announce the hiring of Benjamin Gregory as an intern architect and Betsy Long as an interior designer, both in our Little Rock office, and Daniel Tenorio as an intern architect in our Fayetteville office.

Ben joins our office with six years of experience on projects ranging from small high-end residential renovations to large multi-building institutional projects. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Maryland and a Master of Architecture from the University of Virginia, where he was a 2015 William R. Kenan Fellow at the School of Architecture. After graduation, he spent time in Philadelphia working for an architecture firm on several institutional projects nationwide. A strong interest in woodworking, a keen sense of economy and efficiency in design, and a sensitivity to the intersections of the constructed and natural environments all influence his approach to the practice of architecture.

Betsy first joined WER as an Interior Design Intern in the summer of 2017, her success lead to WER offering her a part-time Interior Design Intern position while she completed her degree. This June, Betsy was hired as a full-time Interior Designer at the firm. Betsy graduated from Harding University and earned a B.A. in Interior Design. She is originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma but has become a die-hard fan of the Razorbacks. She loves the challenge of creating functional and aesthetically pleasing spaces, especially through healthcare and educational design. Betsy’s passion for cultivating her knowledge through art and architectural history compliments WER goals and brings value to the interior design department.

“We are very excited to welcome Ben and Betsy to the WER team,” said David Sargent AIA, WER Architects/Planners CEO. “Both Ben and Betsy are tremendously talented and have a real passion for the built environment. Their hands-on approach, skill, and character will be a great asset to our office.”

Daniel first joined WER as an Architecture Design Intern in the Fall of 2017. His success led to WER offering him a part-time Architecture Design Intern position while he completed his degree. In May, he was hired as a full-time Architecture Designer. Daniel graduated from the University of Arkansas and earned a B.A. in Architecture. He is originally from Little Rock. As a designer, he loves the challenge of developing abstract forms and turning them into a functional built space that addresses the fundamental needs of human interaction. Daniel’s passion for drawing, digital design and architectural history compliments WER’s goals and brings value to the firm.
