Warschawski has purchased a former Episcopal church in Mt. Washington to serve as the company’s new headquarters office. According to a release, CEO David Warschawski is spearheading the “ideation and design” for the renovation and new floorplan which should result in about 20,000 sq. ft. of useable space at the former St. John’s Episcopal Church at 1700 South Road. The agency reports going “to great lengths” to preserve the original stained glass windows which will be incorporated in to a new church being built in Nicaragua, while the crosses will be removed and relocated. The church, built in 1928, was sold for $620,000 to 1700 South LLC, according to a report in the Baltimore Business Journal.
Warschawski also announced that it has been retained by LendIt Fintech, the world’s leading conference series committed to financial services innovation, to create integrated marketing communications campaigns to help grow the brand and drive conference participation. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The agency also promoted Corin Tahinos to senior designer. She joined Warschawski in 2016 as junior designer. Sarah Sawyer has joined as Director and General Counsel. She will oversee client strategy, day-to-day activities, new business development and legal matters for the agency and clients. Before joining Warschawski, Sawyer was a business attorney for Offit Kurman, Attorneys At Law.
