    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

“In promoting Wil to the CEO position at Taco sends a clear message of the full confidence and trust that our board of directors and I have in him. Together with the senior management team, Wil will master the challenging tasks and exciting opportunities that lie ahead of us in the years ahead,” said White.
