In addition to a successful return to in-person collaboration for our team, we are fortunate to have a new group of talented individuals join our design studio since the beginning of the summer. Please join us in welcoming our newest team members, Andrew Mazer, Eli Perez, Irmak Fermen, and our interns, Oliver Church, Mason Reinhart, Madison Hollowell, and Stephen Leichty.
After 15 months of predominantly remote collaboration, we are thrilled to warmly and safely welcome our teammates and friends back together. We kicked off with a backyard party to reconnect our entire team with a face-to-face celebration as we have emerged from our pandemic hibernation.
We are proud of our resilient and tenacious team that continues to provide the highest level of design and service to with our clients, consultants, and construction professionals. The challenges we overcame together during the past 15 months taught us valuable lessons, and we are emerging stronger and better-equipped moving into our next chapter.
We proudly celebrate our 4 new team members, who have joined us in 2021: Alanna Gladney, Gabriela Fuentes, Sumayia Samad, Jhave Buenaventura, and our Intern and Extern, Matt Gilmore and Oliver Church. Our people are our most valuable resource. These new team members were thoughtfully selected by the partners for their creativity, intelligence and talent, for their ability to operate in our collegial studio environment, and for their commitment and interest in our collaborative culture that values our clients, the community, continuing education, and the advancement of our profession.
Please join us in welcoming these dedicated individuals who passionately believe in the power of design to positively shape the world.
