TBE has completed more than 400 hotel and 300 casino design projects throughout North America.
Johnathan Ruder, Director of Production and Associate Partner at TBE, explains “Matthew’s upbeat attitude and excitement for our industry was noticeable during his interview. He was work-ready, exhibited his experience and knowledge of policies. Matthew is self-initiating and has learned our culture quickly. He has worked with several of our project leads, as well as our President and Design Principal, Rich Emery, all of whom admire his work and enjoy working with him.”
“Matthew Turk was always willing to help other students and his instructors as well. He worked as the department tutor, arriving very early every morning, and prepared to work,” says Kelley Raftery, Architecture Department Chair and instructor. “He displayed leadership skills and a willingness to teach others when needed. Matt was trustworthy and reliable.”
Matt tells us, “Ranken opened many doors within my field. I’ve been through several positions and received many inquiries due to my degree from Ranken. My favorite memory from my time spent at Ranken is late night projects in the studio with several other students.”
