Baltimore design firm Chambers acquires Dallas company

Baltimore design firm Chambers, which specializes in the planning, architecture and interior design of private clubs, announced Friday that it has acquired a rival based in Texas.

CCI Club Design will be changing its name to Chambers but will continue its Dallas operations, according to a statement from Chambers.

Chambers will remain headquartered in Baltimore, the statement said, and no one will lose their job because of the acquisition.

"Once friendly competitors, we're now combining the tremendous talents of both firms to enhance the services we provide to our clients within the private club industry," said Rick Snellinger, president and CEO of Chambers.

CCI Chairman and CEO Harry Chris, is retiring after more than 40 years in the club design industry.

"I expect to see the combined companies flourish in an industry that continues to evolve and grow," Chris said.

Founded in 1899 as a painting and decorative finish company, Chambers completed its first club project in 1945.

The Baltimore and Annapolis yacht clubs and the Baltimore Country Club are among the hundreds of country, golf, city and yacht clubs Chambers has counted as clients.
