NIKA welcomes its newest team members


NIKA welcomes its newest team members – Charlie Swit, Tae Jung and Lionel Young!

Charlie joins the architecture studio as its Architecture Manager.  Charlie hails from the Palmetto State, South Carolina and is a Clemson alum.  Go Tigers!  Charlie most recently worked with Batson Architects, Inc. in Greenville, – first as a Senior Project Manager and then as a Principal.  He brings tons of design and project management experience to NIKA as well as business development.  In his spare time, Charlie travels back and forth to Greenville to spend time with his family.  He is also a road trip warrior.  On a recent road trip adventure, he and his son traveled the country in a RV with the goal of visiting as many baseball stadiums as they could.

Tae joins the NIKA team as its Design Manager.  His expertise crosses over to marketing, proposal management and project management.  He has already jumped into making our marketing function more efficient and has improved our proposal process by leaps and bounds! Tae’s talent at creating winning proposals and bids is a great addition to our team.  Tae’s creativity shows itself outside of work as demonstrated by his talent for playing classical guitar.  He also teaches a class on a weekly basis. Tae is local and lives in beautiful Ellicott City with his family.

Lionel is the newest addition to the electrical engineering team.  Some of his accomplishments while at his previous employer include the design of the low and medium voltage power system for a large medical office building; the design of a new Power Distribution System for a Veteran Administration Complex; and the design of a new Power Distribution System for a large hospital.  A rare DC native, Lionel lives in the district and enjoys the city life.  When he’s not working, he is barbequing his famous ribs for family and friends!
