A West Michigan architecture firm has named a new group of shareholders.
TowerPinkster, which also offers engineering and interior design services, advanced four employees to its shareholder group as associates, according to the firm last week.
The team members include Greg Adamczyk, Shelbi Iseminger, Yvonne VanWormer and Zach Verhulst.
“Greg, Shelbi, Yvonne and Zach are very talented and devoted members of our team,” said Bjorn Green, president and CEO, TowerPinkster. “Their leadership and engagement with our clients and our mission made them ideal candidates to join our shareholder's group.”
Adamczyk has more than 15 years of experience as a mechanical engineer with a concentration in engineering consultation, maintenance engineering and project management.

He is also a member of the National Society of Professional Engineering, American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers, American Society of Plumbing Engineers and a certified Health Facilities Design Professional.
Iseminger has experience with projects in all of TowerPinkster’s targeted markets. She joined the firm as an intern while at Western Michigan University and transitioned to a full-time employee upon graduation. For the past eight years, she has been honing her skills in programming, space planning, design development, furniture and finish selection, signage, drawing production and coordination.
VanWormer is a certified interior designer with project experience ranging from health care to K-12 schools and corporate environments. With a specialty in furniture layout and space configuration, she advocates for unique product applications within technology-rich environments. Her projects have varied in scope from small renovations to specifying furniture and creating space layouts for entire buildings. She also spent two years as an on-site facilities designer at Pfizer.
