  I love the fast pace of retail programs and the ability to connect with clients and colleagues across the US, Canada, and beyond.

Jay Baptista

Senior Principal

Petaluma, California

Jay specializes in retail and commercial development programs for corporate clients and has managed programs and projects across the retail spectrum including national retailers, restaurant chains, rental car companies, utilities companies, and financial institutions.

Development programs for restaurant design and multi-site retail are demanding projects. Jay’s experience, commitment, and vision ensure that his clients consistently deliver on their brand experience with every location.

One of his most rewarding projects was managing the McDonald’s Canada Destination 2012 program. Working with multiple Stantec offices, Jay and his team leveraged many of our resources to deliver over 400 projects in three years across Canada. As account manager for McDonald’s, Jay also oversees design and program management services for their development program in the United States. Other clients include iFLY, Autonation, and Walgreens.

“Finding creative ways to implement our client’s retail brands is what inspires me and the retail studios team every day,” says Jay.

In the mood for an all-organic lunch? We’re working with Amy’s Drive-Thru to remodel their current restaurant as well as design future locations. The Press Democrat recently profiled the unique Petaluma restaurant.
